Hey everyone,
My name is Dustin, Im new around here. A little about myself:
I live in Sacramento and Im a Paramedic currently working in Contra Costa County. I have been around firearms my entire life, but never had any formal training before last summer. My first class was with Stone Cobra Tactical I believe in June of 2010, and Im pretty sure there were a few CG'ers there. I enjoyed that class and did learn some new things, mostly safety and technique. It was a lot of fun. The next class I took was with my father-in-law-to-be, in Coarsegold with Rudy Waldinger of Defensive Firearms Training. This class was also a lot of fun and I learned A LOT. Too bad its so far away from home, I'd love to take more of Rudys classes.

I have recently started looking into some P.O.S.T. training facilities, in the interest of some kind of tactical/SWAT medicine career.

I look forward to socializing and learning a lot on CG. Maybe I'll meet some of you sometime. I wouldnt mind joining on some range days, shooting the **** (no pun intended), or doing some range cleanup days. Which brings me to another topic, I grew up camping in the Sierras and it makes me sick how much waste is left up there now. The forest is being destroyed. Has anyone seen the Rubicon trail lately? Its sad. Glad to see there are cleanups and stuff organized. It may not sound like much coming from one single individual, but I appreciate it, and look forward to being a part of those days.

I'm in Sacramento County. You need to get your CCW appointment NOW. The next available appointments to turn in the app are at the end of JUNE. If you wait, you'll only have to wait LONGER.

If that happens, you'll be wanting to attach the LP12 pads to your head, select 360J and press the button...:whistling:

Welcome!

The wife and I are spending Valentines weekend taking a 3 day course at DFT. DFT seems like a great place to take instruction but it isn't mentioned much around here. I'd love to hear more about any highlights of your experience there or what to expect.
