  • Another new guy who had been around a while...

    Hi everyone - I've been a "member" here for a while and have been lurking and getting a feel for the place. I like what I've seen! Ya'll are a well reasoned bunch of folks who generally seem to share the same views on guns that I do.

    I decided to list my "credentials" in my signature - but I'm not the type to blow smoke either... so I'll say up-front that I've been shooting since I was 7 years old, but have only been an instructor for a little over 1 year now. I decided to take the plunge after repeatedly being asked to teach family and friends how to shoot. I liked it, and wanted to be sure I was doing it correctly. Getting my certs was fun, and led me down the path to teaching CCW. The rest, as they say....

    I teach CCW classes in Logan County, at a range in Bellefontaine we now call home. Classes are co-taught with an instructor friend of mine. We have a lot of fun doing the classes, and the people have been great.

    Anyway, I look forward to making some new friends here, and even learning a thing or two!

    Plenty of good people and useful information here, and we're always glad to have knew knowledgeable folks, too!

    I've been carrying for something over 40 years now - semi-retired rent-a-cop and computer guy - so you can't teach me anything :mrgreen:, but I do listen anyway.
