    Hi From East Tennessee!

    Just a little intro... I am not actually new, I have been a member for a few months, but anyway.

    I was raised around guns, my dad hunted, and taught my brother and I from a young age how to safely handle guns, shoot, hunt, etc.

    I have worked for BellSouth for 8 years now, and am formerly a Sheriff's Deputy for Knox County (1993 to 1996). I loved working in law enforcement and am now in the process of getting back on the Sheriff's Dept as a reserve officer (same duties, responsibilities, and authority as a full time officer), although I will have to go back through the academy since I have been out of it for so long.

    After leaving the Sheriff's Dept, as soon as TN passed the "shall issue" laws I applied for and obtained my carry permit, and have carried ever since. I am a loyal, diehard Glock fan and would not even consider buying or carrying anything other than a Glock. When I first qualified with the Sheriff's Dept, I used a revolver that I had shot for some time, and scored a passable 86%. I went through transition to carry a Glock, with a new Glock that I had never shot before then, and passed with a perfect 100% score. I sold the revolver and have never carried a wheelgun since.
