    Not a new member...but new name

    I decided to take Pete's advice (Formerly 0.02) and chenge my screen name from Sig_P239 to TN_Mike.

    After all, I do not carry the P239 much anymore, it has been replaced by the Glock 23 so the name doesn't really reflect accurately my carry gun. So, why not go with something that isn't going to change anytime soon. (Unless I find a job in Indiana...which could happen. Then another name change might be in order...but we'll cross that bridge if it comes up).

    So, it's still me, just a new name and new look. The Avatar probably isn't the one I will settle with, just a temp.

    formerly Sig_P239 now TN_Mike

    Had to go with TN_Mike since Mike was already taken. Figures, someone joined last June with the name and has never posted. My luck.

    OH well...this will work.

    Talking

    I changed the avatar after the name, not at the same time, and lets face it JD is much more easier than JDLv4_0, even I have trouble typing it correctly.


    And besides, this isn't my third name change

    Low blow.....low blow.

    First name was PT-111....moved up in guns to a Sig, which I think you like too JD and was proud of the move up in quality so the name change. Then, changed carry gun to a Glock, so the name didn't really fit. So now I am just Mike. Just like I have been for 39 years.

    But, I am off now to do my weigh training. Maybe I should have changed it to fitness_Mike.....hmmmm. Nah.

    Every time I get to recognizing Mike's user name he changes. OK, Mike, we understand. If you move we will let you change your name again. We like you. Hey, maybe you should change your name to Skinny or Skinny Mike.

    Haha - we could always have expanded the deal to ''Shed-the-pounds-Mike" LOL.

    OK Mike - you will have to keep this a while - folks are gettin confused with all the changes I shall miss the ''slim-you'' avatar tho - it somehow fitted your image!

    Wish to heck I was 39 again!

    I am planning on making a new skinny me avatar....after all, I am about 15 pounds lighter now than I was in the avatar I just got rid of. And of course I no longer have the big mustache......

    In your case, "Memphis Slim" might have been a good one.
