Hey Okies!
Since the new format doesn't have membership like the old social group format, I thought it might be handy to have an intro thread to let interested folks speak up and introduce themselves. Share as much or little info as you feel comfortable with, but if everyone could at least point out the area they live, and any pertinent info about where they shoot and what their experience/interests are it might be helpful for setting up informal practice sessions or announcing events.

I guess I'll get it started:

Location: Edmond
Range access: OKC Gun Club
Experience level/Training: Low; Magpul Dynamic Carbine 1, Tiger Valley 1-day pistol, Aim Fast Hit Fast 2-day pistol
Interests: practice sessions/drills; training opportunities
I also shoot the monthly USPSA matches at OKCGC when I can fit it into my schedule. They're starting up some 3-gun stuff out there I might give a try for some fun/extra practice.

I'm in NWOKC and have access to OKCGC.

I've had pistol training with Givens, Yeager, Suarez, Steve Moses, and shoot regularly in Will Andrews Pistol Skills classes.

I've had shotgun training with Givens, carbine training with Will, and basic rifle training through Appleseed. I'm planning on attending Givens instructors course this weekend and Farnams urban carbine in Dec. I attended the 2009 Tactical Conference at USSA and will be there again in 2010. I've had empty hand and knife training with Mike Janich.

I'm interested in defensive drills and gun handling especially with a carbine.

Dude bratch where have you been? Why didn't you come to the Magpul class? We could have fixed everything Will taught you....... I kid I kid. lol

So if we get both Josh's, , zg, bratch and Doc Todd we could get some good training in at the gun club.

I've been trying to shoot more and type less. I've been reading all the regulars boards but haven't had much to say, my opinion is usually shoot the friggin gun which isn't what they want to hear. I still try to pipe in on technical questions or BS threads that catch my eye but they are few and far between.

I screwed the pooch on Magpul, I had really wanted to attend it or Pat Rogers this year but with the ammo situation we had this spring I didn't go through with it. Had I known supply and prices would be this reasonable this quick I probably would have tried harder to make it. After reading the aars I'm really bummed I missed it. Maybe next time I'd like to see how my rifle would run.

Running some drills would be a good time I'm always up for learning and improving.

Experience level/Training: Low/Average; Magpul Dynamic Carbine 1, Will Andrews Pistol Skills at H&H

Location: NW OKC

Range access: Not an active club member as of yet.

Experience level/Training: Unacceptable- a lot of pistol range time, no formal training, usually take advantage of any range time I can afford.

Interests: Wanting to get into running drills with carbine (or 3-gun) and eventually conquer the art of long range shooting. Completed Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Mgmt & Admin, currently processing through 2 different federal LE agencies.

I need to make my shooting resume more desirable (much like that of Sir Bratch) as well as perfect my skills.

Greetings. I'm not exactly a regular on M4C but I was encouraged to check out this area of the board.

Location: I am in the south side of Norman.

Range: I do not yet have access to a range in the area.

Experience: Low to moderate. I've taken two carbine courses and a pistol course from EAG and another pistol course from USSA. Additionally I took a diagnostic AR operator class from Dean Caputo. I also work at a range that's out of state.


I would be up for anything, I really need to find a place to shoot outside and do some movement drills. Doing drills with other folks against a time standard of some sort would be great as well.

Whats up guys.

Steve Aryan

*waves*

New to M4C, and came on here because after decrying the platform for a long time, I got "bit by the bug." And hard.

Location: NW OKC

Range: H&H and Banner Rd.

Experience: Practically none. I've taken a Pistol Skills I course at H&H, but rarely go shooting since I have no idea where I can do the sort of stuff I want to do--speed drills, "long distance" shooting (beyond 100yds), multiple-target stuff, etc. I've gone shooting exactly once this year.

Interest: Learning to run the weapons I have: an M16A4gery, a couple pistols, and an eventual defensive carbine.

Welcome, dionysusigma.
You should look into the OKC gun club, there are some bays there where we practice a little more "practical" stuff. Keep an eye on this sub forum for the latest plans.

Some of you might remember me from before.

Location: Tulsa
Range access: USSA if I want to spend the money. Red Castle Gun Club if I get a membership. Tulsa Firearms, but not a fan of that place. Happy Hollow, it's cheap, but the old man can be a pain in the ass. He doesn't like rapid fire and I seem to recall he's not NFA friendly.
Experience: 12yrs military(11B), 1 combat tour, recreational shooting and some mentoring by Mike Bay(formerly of SEAL Teams 5 & 3, Master 1911 Gunsmith and Distinguished Rifle/Pistol US Navy rifle and pistol teams)
Hobbies/Interests: collecting watches, shooting, reading

As a full time family man now I don't get much time or funding to shoot anymore, most of my watch collection has been sold off and I only get to read occasionally now. Currently in the process of spooling up for another deployment.

New here.
My name is Adam

Location: Shawnee

Range: Non- member but I shoot mainly at Thunderbird range and occasionally at H&H (I don't really like indoor)

Experience: No formal Training other than basic safety and CCW but I am desperately trying to change that. As funds allow and location of courses work for me logistically I'd like to take some carbine classes, long range classes and pistol classes. Maybe after I get some skills 3 gun competitions. I have a friend in law enforcement who has taught me some basics of moving and shooting but I will readily admit that I need more structured training.

Interest: Being prepared. I've lived in some bad places and as a direct result of that I want to be as sharp as I can for my family. Also I am a musician. I play in a few local OKC bands and do the occasional studio work for artists ranging from metal to country to anything in between if it doesn't suck;)

Don't wait to start shooting 3 gun. You will regret not getting into it sooner. If you need any guns or gear to get started let me know I have 2-3 of everything. In fact I had 6 or 7 guys running my Accurate Iron Benelli shotguns and 3 guys using my Stag Arms Model 3G rifles at the last match. You should also join us over in BoomerShooter.com for all the local match announcements, scores and training info.

Hope to see u at the next match.

My training consists of what I received as a member USMC

Hello fellas. Checking in from Elk City in far western Oklahoma. I don't have any formal training. I learned most of what I know from my best friend of 25 years who is former USMC. We don't have any ranges to speak of around here. The closest is 45 minutes in Weatherford at Tin Star. My buddy's family has a large chunk of land and that's where you'll find us most of the time. I'd consider myself pretty proficient with the AR platform. I've built a few over the years. My newest interest is NFA stuff (suppressors and SBR, can't afford MG's). I have been Elk City's head of code enforcement for 7 years. I do inspections for any building, HVAC, plumbing, or electrical work in our jurisdiction. If you guys do your own plumbing and have questions, I'm your man. I was a journeyman plumber for 12 years prior to coming on as the code official (hence the name "poopile"... :p)

I'm forwarding a message from Mike Seeklanderat USSA:

Hey everyone- We just returned from a trip to visit John, and I am glad to say he is in high spirits, while yet in tremendous pain. John has multiple fractures in both legs, and a shattered pelvis. He has been through 2 surgery's and will endure several more over the coming weeks. Here is some additional information:

John is in St. Francis hospital off Yale. He welcomes all visitors, but please text or call before visiting. John is currently without insurance. While I am sure the person responsible (he was hit by a Broken Arrow school bus) will end up helping with his expenses, in the interim John will be without work for a long time. I am personally asking each of you to consider giving cash or whatever you can to help him through this tough time.
There is a webpage

http://www.usshootingacademy.com/content.aspx?id=174

built for John on USSA's site that has donation options. You can find a link on it to donate through paypal.
Checks or cash can be given to me (Mike Seeklander) at USSA.
Donation's may also be given at the USSA Pro-Shop via cash, check, or credit card.
Please help spread word about John and the opportunity to donate on your facebook pages (just send them to USSA's site) and with your friends and family.

John is a tough guy and will surely recover strongly, but at this time we need to pool our resources and help him through. He is the kind of guy that would be there and go above and beyond for each of us if needed, so lets do the same for him!

Pray for a strong recovery!

Until Then, Train Hard!
