    Hello everyone, just introducing myself. I work in the Insurance Industry but when I am not working I love to shoot and train. I will spread the word about this organization.

    Welcome. I hope you do not mind that your first post gets answered with a question, but I thought you might be just the guy to provide some information. Your industry is always taking the blame for workplace policies prohibiting possession of firearms in the workplace by employees. It is often asserted that "insurance copmanies require" such policies for "liability reasons." Can you offer any insights into whether that is truth or urban legend?

    Malum Prohibitum,

    I am an independent agent working in an agency owned by my family. I am not sure about the large insurance companys, but probably because of liability reasons or liberal company executives. I dont seem to have that problem here. 8)

    Gunstar1,

    Good to know, lets get up a shoot, any good places in rome? Possibly the Floyd County Wildlife's club, Ive been there a few times.

    Wow! I would join that in a heartbeat if it were anywhere down on the southside (south of Atlanta, that is).

    My eyes were bugging out when I read it. I did not know there was anything like that around . . . I wish it was closer to me . . .

    A 300 yard rifle range, too!

    I did not know about it either and I live 15 miles away. I need to give this place a closer look.

    Andrew, if it would help tell them you have someone who may join.

    Gunstar1,

    Sorry for the delayed reply, I was away from my computer this weekend. I have a call into my contact and will let you all know something tommorow. I am sure it will be fine due to his previous invitation to try it out.

    Welcome Andrew and that is a very nice looking club up there in the Rome area, glad you found us here and I am positive that you will find great people with invaluable sources of information. The general banter is first rate also. :)
