Hey there!

New to this site and new to this state (kinda, been here 2yrs). I'm finally getting plugged in around Columbus/Dublin.

Did 10yrs in the Army, took some college classes, and then I met a girl. The rest is history :-)

Getting ready to take the CCW course. Proud owner of a Rock Island M1911 9mm and soon to own a S&W Bodyguard .380 (after it's paid off!).

I'm looking to make friends and socialize in the real world as well as online.

Welcome. And the proper term is NUB; pronounced noob. hehehe It is a word and an acronym. New Useless Body. :mrgreen: Not sure which branch of the military it originated in but was commonly used in the AF.

The Army uses a different, less friendly, acronym. :wink:

Welcome to the forum!

I second the recommendations to attend the PITP, if possible.

Even if you can only stop by and say hello to a couple hundred of your new closest friends, it's worth the short trip.

I'm just in it for the food, but you might be interested in a chance at winning one of the guns we're giving away (well worth the cost of a meal ticket :wink: ).

Every person in boot camp is a NUB until the TI, DI, or whatever term the branch uses gets done with them. Then it is a case by case basis. :wink:

I was a aircraft mechanic. The AF actually does it right. They send the officers to shoot and get shot at. The enlisted just fix their toys when they come back to base.
