    Latest New Guy

    Hello all –

    My name is Bill Thackrey. I'm a lifetime NRA member who has recently migrated from the sunny, but politically repressed climes of Southern California to the free state of Louisiana. I'm living in the Marigny in NOLA. I've been fairly active in the California gun community and am looking to explore the Louisiana (and specifically NOLA) community.

    I'm an avid handgun shooter, having most recently completed "250 Handgun" training at Gunsite with a rating of "Marksman". I also do a bit of long range rifle with two different bolt guns in .338 Lapua Magnum. The longest range I've had access to in California has been 1200 yards. I can pretty consistently ping steel at 1200 with 338LM.

    I believe I read that I should post the kinds of guns I own here. I'm going to refrain from going into great detail, but will list a few things:

    Desert Tech SRS A1 Covert in .338LM / .308 (multiple caliber kits), Schmidt & Bender glass.
    Armalite AR30A1 in .338LM, Schmidt & Bender glass
    Desert Tech MDR in .308, Leupold glass
    FN Scar 17S, .7.62 X 51, Elcan Specter 1.5-6 glass
    JP Rifles SCR-11, 5.56 X 45, Leupold glass
    Various AR platform rifles
    IWI Tavor, 5.56 X 45, EOTech XPS2
    Sig Sauer 716, 7.62 X 51, Leupold glass
    Marlin 1895GS Guide Gun, .45-70 Government
    1860 Henry (Uberti) .45 Long Colt
    Various vintage Winchester lever guns
    Mossberg 930JM
    Handguns: Sig Sauer P226, P226 Mk25, P229, P239, Glock 19, Glock 34
    Kimber K6S, various S&W wheel guns in .357, .44 magnum and .45 Long Colt
    and probably the silliest "handgun", a Henry Mares Leg in .357 magnum, a fun, but truly dumb firearm

    I'm interested in meeting folks who are shooting long range steel near NOLA and well as people shooting handgun or 3-gun completion here.

    now that you’ve told everyone what you own and where you live, you might want to consider a new address.
    Just a thought!
