    Hello all, I am new to GT and to CT. I have been reading for well over a month, and learned a ton from all of you. I am a full time computer tech, but today I finally got my long time dream. I qualified with my Glock 22 for the local county sheriffs dept. posse.

    I am so excited to start working events, we do fairs, and other things that the real deputies don't have time to do.

    Anyway, thanks for letting me read all the good advice, I am sure I will be posting questions soon enough.

    BTW I am from west/central Michigan.

  2. Hmmm, Isabella County is central so I'm betting West Central around Newaygo County. Welcome to GT.

    I am just a helper. :) so I guess, I am sort of adopted too. I really enjoyed all 2000 pages of the duty belt thread. It is going to help me a lot as I setup my stuff.

    Welcome.

    Don't sweat Dragoon. He's had his shots. We think.

    No big deal, alot of us, myself included, started out as "not real officers". Just be careful, LE work is a calling. It if is right for you it might just suck you in

    I think I am a little to old and broken to take it up fulltime, but I am already thinking I may go back to school for some computer forensics stuff. I am a computer tech now already. But I broke my back 11 years ago, so I don't think I could pass the academy. But ya never know. :cool:
     
  14. Good news for you, Smoke: You are no longer the FNG! :rofl:

    A cordial welcome to the replacement FNG! :thumbsup:

    Thank you for the welcome. I am sure I will ask some REALLY stupid questions too. That will really show how much of a FNG I really am. haha
