    New to CC From S.E. MIchigan

    Hi. Lets see....I am a "returnee" to the shooting sport. Recently purchased a 4 inch 1911 (Kimber) for Conceal Carry. Taking a CCW course in early Feb.
    Wife is also getting involved, actually she works at EOTech and went range shooting a couple times last summer and expressed an interest in getting into the sport which re-kindled my interest (I am ex- Air Force Air Police). She plans on getting her CCW license also. Anyway been going to a local indoor range once a week for a couple months now and go through 100 rounds each session.......getting better but probably will not be as good as I was in the AF but having fun (should of done this a long time ago), my shooting hand is not as "steady" as it once was.....A fellow worker informed me about IDPA so been looking around (on the net) at the local IDPA ranges and plan on attending the "introduction session" at the nearest one in the spring then attend some of the practice/training sessions and see how that goes........anyway glad to be back. Have been looking at all the different discussions on carry gear and been learning a lot hopefully will lead to purchasing the best gear for my needs and will also check out the discussions on tactics, training, etc.....have alot to learn & re-learn.......

    Welcome from Lansing!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
    Train hard, live easy.
