I just mailed off a check on the 14th and by today, received acknowledgement and the last two newsletters. Now that I'm a member, what's the secret handshake? biggrin.gif

Thanks fellas, hope to meet each of you somewhere, sometime, somehow-if I can get away.

GP, been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest. I'm fully involved in the "family business" now. Haven't taken a real vacation in two years but I'm going river rafting in north Georgia this weekend and plan to attend the shoot at the Redlands on the 29th. If you're coming, bring the Greasegun so I can run a mag of corrosive WWII ammo through it. laugh.gif

Attn all TCA members - Do not divulge the secret handshake or the secret sign and countersign, even if you are tortured. For those of you who have travelled east or known Hiram, that's a different story.

Hi Jay,
Good decision and welcome! I also just joined before the TCA shoot, went to Fairfax and met a bunch of these Thompson Crazed folks and found one of the nicest groups of good people I have ever met (REALLY!!) biggrin.gif

Looking forward to meeting you also, and my wife wants to know if you have a wife or significant other who also shoots??

Not sure if I'll be at KCR in Oct (usually go in April) but my wife and I WILL be at Phoenix in Dec for the SAR show (never done that one!)

maybe see ya soon?

Hi John,

My wife can shoot and will sometimes, but she really doesn't care too much for the sport. I do have a video of her emptying a drum next to a friend dumping a 71 round drum in a Swedish K. She finished way ahead. See ya.

Jay, Glad to have you aboard. I promise to show you the "secret handshake" at the next TCA show. One of the best clubs I have ever been involved with! Mike, are you talking about that little microbrew pub downtown?
