    Hello from Las Vegas

    Hi Everyone -

    Longtime CCW holder, hunter, and outdoor enthusiast. I enjoy IDPA, IPSC and learning new stuff as time allows. We all should never stop learning and improving our skills.

    There are some great folks in the shooting community and for me the camaraderie of interfacing with other shooters is as enjoyable as the activities themselves.

    I participate in a few other forums as well and through it have made some new friends and met some great people. Glad to be here, and I hope to make a positive contribution.

    Nice, I think Vegas is the majority stock holder right now. Welcome Capt Mike.

    Welcome Mike, I'm glad that we are getting so many members in the Vegas valley. One day soon all of us are going to have to get an eyeball on eachother and punch some holes in some paper....or go to the steel match at Desert Sportsman on Wednesday nights.

    Once again welcome to the forum.

    Welcome aboard Capt. Mike there are some really nice folks in this forum. It has a lot of experience available from 1911 to combat tupperware, and even revolvers. Its a good thing.

    Hey Mike!

    Just got here myself a couple weeks ago.

    Did you just move to Vegas? I thought you were in San Diego from conversations elsewhere.

    Anyway, welcome!

    Welcome, Mike

    Glad to have another Las Vegas shooter. Wonder why there are so many of us in this forum? Is it because we don't gamble and have money for the finer things in life, like guns, ammo, and shooting? Or, perhaps it's because we have over 6,000 known gang members in our fair community. Gee, what a target rich environment. Welcome aboard. I second acparmed that we will all have to get together some day.

    Welcome to Tara

    Also glad to have you with us. I'm a little late with my welcome, but it's sincere. Maybe we can get Bumper to offer a special award to the largest group from a single city. Heh, heh, heh! Seems like we might have a head start. I haven't been on this forum too long myself but am glad I'm here. I feel honored to be among such great people.
