    Hello from southern West Virginia

    Hello everyone!

    I'm from Beckley, WV...ex-Navy and currently working as a performance engineer for a wireless carrier.

    Just got into the CC arena but was raised around guns and hunting. I haven't hunted for a few years, my grand dad raised me and he passed away a while back and it seems all of my "old" hunting buddies are gone now too. Being at camp was always more fun than the actual hunting part. Don't have enough time to become a proficient hunter so I leave that to others and I just enjoy their kills and stories. I do own several rifles and shotguns ranging from a 1970 Belgium Browning BAR 30-06 to a Sears&Roebuck .410

    Life member of the NRA and enjoy all aspects of outdoors. Used to ride sportbikes but I was getting too brave to keep riding on the streets like I was so I sold that but I miss riding.

    On to the important stuff...

    Just got an M&P Shield 40 after a week or so of research and contemplating. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but I will be doing so in the next few days. Luckily there is an indoor range a stone's throw from my house.

    This site was a great resource for all my research and I really like the civility of it and the helpfulness I found among the more seasoned participants.

    Looking forward to more discussions and learning.

    Thanks for having me!

    --- Jamie

    Welcome Jamie, from the SE corner of Michigan. Let us know how you like the Shield 40. I am looking to get one to go between my FS M&P 40 and my Bodyguard 380.
