I wanted to welcome everyone to the NC Shooting Sports message board. Here is where we all can talk about guns, matches, gear or what ever comes to mind.
I will start off, I am Ken, I am in Raleigh and I am pretty much addicted to shooting sports. I shoot IDPA, USPSA and ZSA on a regular basis and I ahve even competed in ICORE. My favorite division to shoot is Single Stack in USPSA, where I have a Springfield 1911 in 40 S&W, that is highly modified with all kinds of goodies and CDP in IDPA, where I have a Taurus PT1911 in 45.
I first started shooting a Glock G22, where I did pretty good, but I always wanted a 1911, and fell in love with it so I have been shooting that since. Every once in a while you may find me out with my Beretta 92FS, or the G22, and starting next week I may bring out my S&W Model 28 Revo and shoot ZSA, just to have some fun.
well I look forward to talking with everyone about this great sport, see everyone down range...
Well I am on the coast of NC, and got into shooting with SASS. I moved on to add IDPA, USPSA, and occasional Steel Challenge. The common thread in all of them is that I use .45 Colt revolver in all of them, as I reload that caliber.
I use a Ruger Alaskan (.45 Colt/.454 Casull) in IDPA, USPSA, and Steel Challenge. I am a Range Officer in USPSA and a Safety Officer in IDPA.
Oddly enough shooting sports are not my primary hobby. I am a competitive olympic style fencer, who has competed in 10 of the last 11 US Fencing Nationals. I am on my way to the 2011 US Fencing Nationals this July.
I am a rated director (referee) in two of the three fencing weapon divisions (Foil and Epee).
As you can see I have a full plate of hobbies, along with holding down a 40 hours a week job.
Blueridge, I have a TON of commercial cast .45 Colt 250 grain bullets that I am trying to sell for a friend who closed his business recently. Please let me know if you are interested and I will count them out for you (have half a steel barrel full) Hope you are well, John Z Sr
