Figured I'd stop in and say hey.

 

Live in SW Michigan and enjoy shooting and outdoor training.

Was declined military service some decades ago, but have some military tactical training from friends who have retired.

Just keeping up my skills to protect my family and land if the need arises.

You've come to the right place!  Great group of guys here.

And we certainly need more Michiganders.

Welcome aboard! It really is the best forum around... Considering the controversial topics (Glock vs Everyone else and AK vs AR) that we get to chatting about, there is a really good level of mutual respect and open mindedness that keeps the trolling and drama most forums get pretty much to zero.

I'm looking for reasons to go to the range... the longer the range the better, these 100yard ranges around here blow.

I've got family in the Detroit burbs. I get back once or twice a year. Not the town it was when I grew up.

I grew up in the area, moved 20 years ago.

 

It sure ain't the same place it used to be.

It's a shame what Detroit has become.

My family moved out of Detroit when I was 4 so I remember very little of it but even then I knew it wasn't a good place to be anymore.

 

42 now and I look at it and just shake my head.

 

You get out of Detroit and into the surrounding areas and it can be a beautiful place, but for a long time we will be in the shadow of Detroit's violence and decay.

 

Heck, when someone asks me where I'm from in Michigan I'm almost ashamed to say outside of Detroit... I go with Ann Arbor (though technically closer anyway), I don't want to be associated with that city.

Heck I grew up in Taylor lol.
You say that it's just as bad as saying Detroit.
My grandparents homesteaded there back in the late 20's.
