Just joined and wanted to say Way To Go Guys and thanks. I will be waiting for info on joining and CCW. Hooked up with a bunch of guys at work that are into guns too, so that makes work go by faster. Joined a local club but it's hard for me to get to.
Can't wait for yours.

THX blackdragon, looking forward to seeing you there.

Now then; an update and clarification for anybody local.

We all know how rumors go. It's like playing "telephone" at a drunken party.

First: Of the principals involved nobody is angry or pi$$ed at anyone else.

HCTC will open as a retail shop, indoor range, and training center.

Due to unforeseen circumstances D&R Firearms will be dissolving and my now biz partner Dean will be forming his own s-corp ( or whatever he decides ) and operating as we had before out of his garage.

I will continue to be associated with HCTC as the chubby old fart for comedy relief.

Dean is LE MFI and plans to offer CC and 1 on 1 training. He is highly qualified and I recommend him to any and all. He will probably be keeping the "old" website, thegunexperts.com , so info can be seen there. Dean is compiling a waiting list for CC once the ISP starts approving curriculums.

Dean and I remain and will continue to be best of friends and I'll be helping out with his new endeavor relative to the esoteric matters I was handling.

I wish Dean all the very best of luck as I know he wishes me.

Stay tuned; work on the range progresses.

Wish us both luck.

I would post some pics but it's to the point where it's before/after walls painted.

Things have been slowed down a bit with the "slimdown" and equipment being delayed.

Looking now for a grand opening in January.

I may have misspoke in an earlier post re "stop by". I intended that to be after opening. I apologize for any confusion but HCTC is still a construction site and we all know about insurance reg's and lawyers.

THX, stay tuned

Now that the idiots in Congress have maybe declared a truce the ATF will have people back at desks to process licenses.

New website will be updated as things progress
