New Member - Charlotte, NC area
Just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. My name is TJ and I live on Lake Wylie which is partially in Charlotte, NC and partially in SC. I live on the SC side of the lake. My grandfather was a Mecklenburg police office for 35 yrs and a US Marshall for 14 yrs. My dad and uncle were also police offices for a little less than 10 yrs a piece. I've been around handguns my whole life, but just recently started gaining a great interest in them. I am a CCW permit holder as of 12/08 and just purchased my first handgun, a Springfield XD .40, this week. The good people at Hyatts gun shop did a great job of talking me out of the Glock and into the XD. I'll be picking it up later this week (They are in NC and I"m in SC, so they had to ship it across state lines).
The reason for joining this forum is because I am looking for education, networking, and did I mention education. I'd love to meet some people in the Charlotte region and learn as much as possible about shooting and maybe even get into competition shooting. I've got a long ways to go, but I look forward to the challenges ahead.
I look forward to hearing everyone's input.
