Welcome and thanks for your service
Glad to be here, and I need no thanks... it was absolutely my pleasure.Bud White said:Welcome and thanks for your service
Thanks for the welcome. PA seems to be a good state for being a firearms fan. There are ranges everywhere it seems! I constantly hear rifle fire when I am going to and from my truck at my local community college. I eventually had to check it out... Turns out there's a very nice club on the very next hill. I'm excited.Rock and Glock said:Welcome from North Texas! Lots of PA folks here, so you're in good company. Enjoy!
The service was my pleasure. I only gave it up so that my poor wife would know what I look like. McKeesport is really close to me, I'll have to check into it. I'd like to find a way to make it my weekend job. I'm going to have to look into the cost and where to do it, then find if someone will hire me to train under their business, or if I should just go solo. I would almost preffer solo and do one on one, but that might not be cost effective for a student. What are your thoughts?P95Carry said:Jared - Hi and welcome from a fellow Keystone State guy :smilez:
Only about 120 miles to your ESE. Yes indeed, PA is pretty good for the gun owner and CCW - for which I am much appreciative.
Thank you for your service and if you can get your NRA cert', that'd be great. I got mine with some councillors running a course at McKeesport two years ago.
I dropped her a line. Good looking out. Thanks. I'm extremely motivated to get all the experience I can under my belt so I can attempt to do it for a little bit of money. Any hints on this?dr_cmg said:Welcome, Jared. Great to hear that you enjoy teaching. We have a new member here that you might be able to help. Amitalou is having difficulty finding someone will to teach her about firearms and shooting. She is not close to Pittsburgh as far as I can tell, but you may be able to help her via email or maybe you know someone closer to her that can help her with training. Look at her intro and see what you can do. Thanks from me way down south in Alabama. BTW I love teaching, too.:yup:
I'm relatively new at CC and have never been very good with pistols still learning. My wife is the shooter in the family. I am one who just loves to teach - anything. When you get around to reading some of the posts for the last month or so my are the LOOOONG ones. I tend to teach in them too. I try to control myself. The one bit of advice I will give you can apply to other things besides teaching: practice, practice, practice.JaredMcLaughlin said:I dropped her a line. Good looking out. Thanks.
