Welp, Im the new guy. 

Went to my first shoot 2 weeks ago. Had so much fun. 

Already got a 73, a sxs, a pair of Taylors. 

No clue what I am doing, but I'm having a blast doing it!

 It is all about being a kid again.

 

Enjoy

Congratulations!

Just remember three rules….

1) Be Safe

2) Have Fun 

3) Be Safe!

Depending on what part of the country you’re in maybe we will catch up with each other and enjoy a match.

BTW one more thing 

CAS is not the Wire and the Wire is not CAS.

Daniel, you're a member of a great club that has a great range, and you can tell them I said so!

Folks,

 I got the privilege of shooting with Daniel on his first match. He is not bragging, so I will brag for him. This was his first match and he shot clean and finished 13th in a field of 23 shooters. Everyone else there was an experienced shooter.  I think that's a pretty good first showing for a newbie. If he can stick with it, he will be an up-and-coming contender.

AT HIS FIRST MATCH?!?!?!?  Please, please, PLEASE tell me he's not a Duelist. :(

 

Welcome Daniel.  That sounds suspiciously like a given name and not an alias.  Remember the rule about aliases, if you don't pick one in the allotted time we'll pick one for you.  And Lord knows you don't want us doing THAT.   (No, that's not really a rule and there is no allotted time.  But we're an ornery bunch and will pick one for you just out of spite. :lol: )

That's a familiar story.  Same thing happened to us about 23 years ago and we're still shootin'.
Enjoy and be prepared to expand your circle of friends larger than you ever thought possible.

I seen you wuz joined up wif da Bayou Bounty Hunters! That right there is a good group of folks, you should have some "bon temps" there.  I've enjoyed shooting at that club and they do have an interesting bunch of targets....and put on a heck of a good state match too.  Welcome to the fire!

I agree! Everyone has been super helpful. Same for the guys from Deadwood that come to shoot with Bayou.  I'm right between the two, so I should get plenty of shooting in!

Well I certainly appreciate the kind words from someone with your pedigree. I can only pray to shoot as fast as you one of these days!

 

Sure, I took 13th, anyone care to guess who took 1st......

Ill give you 3 guesses and 2 of them don't count.

Still new, so I need to look up all these shooting styles haha. I shoot 1 gun at a time, in my dominate hand. For now. I may see what feels best, who knows. So far, that's the way that feels most natural to me. 

 

Yes, that's my government name haha. Working on an alias, probably driving my wife and my pards crazy. I am too indecisive. 

I am over-thinking it, hopefully this name will be around for the next 40+ years.

I could use some help with my shotgun reloads haha!

If you see me studying your technique, pay me no mind.

You’re going to have to let me know your Elijay connection, we may have some mutual friends.
