Just saying hi, I go to Calibers all the time. Great place.
Thanks will, I'm @ Calibers about 5 days a week but don't shoot much. That's what happens when you make a hobby your job.
Welcome from Northern Arizona
NC is a bit distant for my normal range trips but should I venture east I will stop in. :mrgreen:
A couple friends and I have become recent members of Calibers and enjoy going. We've met some good folks there and like the range.
I got my membership singning up for the CCW course coming up in Feb (along with about 150 others!!).
Anyone that hasn't had the chance to visit the range and lives within a reasonable distance should try it out...you won't be disappointed.
Been a member for a couple of years now. Do to work do not get to shoot there as much as I did, but have spent several thousand rounds there.
Definately worth a visit. Best range for miles and miles.
Kenny, stop whining about the hobby/job and shoot more.
I just got my 1st year membership after my trial membership from the CCW class on October 25th, 2008.
They are a great group of guys and always helpful!
THANKS for such a great place!

I had been to calibers once to look around and I think i will go back. It seems like a good place to blow off a few rounds. I work for a company around the corner and the next time I "fly in" the shop I'll stop by.
No more whining from me
Thanks blue d, I'm going to take some time and shoot a few boxes tomorrow. Hammerhead It was good to see you @ the range today, thanks for renewing your membership, take advantage of it. Keep the comments coming. The best thing about Calibers is our customers. See you on the range!!!
Agree that Calibers is a well ran range. I have been going there for many years and received my CCW training back when Wayne Hobgood was the owner. My wife and a friend of hers went for their CCW training yesterday at Gander Mtn. through Calibers. Highly recommended range.

To get an appointment in Guilford Co is taking 4 to 6 weeks. Then the response time from the state and mental checks is running another 9 to 12 weeks. So 4.5 months would be the time frame for receiving the call from GCSO. By law they must notify you within 90 days with either a rejection letter of the call to pick it up. The CCH Permit has been in effect for more than 15 years in NC, so what is another 4 months. But waiting 4 months for a permit feels like 15 years.
Thanks, Ken. See you Saturday.
Doorman, no problem, hope you enjoyed the CCH class today. I always have a good time teaching and hanging out with awesome people. If you have any feedback on todays class good or bad let me know.
I have to say the class was excellent. I came away with a lot of useful information. The friend that came with me is an NRA Life Member/Benefactor. He was also an instructor back in the day. He said that he learned some good stuff and complimented you on the way you taught the class. I agree with him. Although the material can be a little dry, you did an excellent job of keeping all of interested and engaged. I highly recommend this class to anyone, even folks that have no intention of aquiring a CCH permit. The content of the class is vital for ANY citizen that, God forbid, may have to defend themselves or loved ones some day. So, two thumbs up for Kenny and Calibers for the day!
And by the way, LONG LIVE BOW TIE MAN!
I appreciate the good feedback. I enjoy doing the classes we are starting to do more training. NRA Basic Pistol, All Ladies Classes Basic and Advanced, Defensive and Tactical Courses will be available within a month or so. And more to come.
90 day law?

As far as the law that they have 90 days to answer,
Have you heard of it taking anyone longer than that to get their CCW decisions lately? We still haven't heard anything and have barely 3 business days to go before our 90 days pass from our licensing appointments.
Have a Happy Easter.
PS- I haven't forgotten that we owe you cookies. Next time we come down, I'll make sure you all have a fresh batch.
Classes and Cookies
The dates are posted on the calender tab on the Calibers site. The best way to stay informed on the classes is to send an email to Chuck Ward, his E-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org he can put you on his email list.
We will still let you shoot without the cookies!!!!
