I will be retiring from the Navy next Christmas and I will be moving down to Jackson Lake and I was wondering is there is a good place to shoot and any other AR members in the area.

I don't know much about where it is you'll be living, but
you'll have plenty of gun buddies in the Atlanta area!

Welcome to Georgia!

Welcome to south Metro chas66.Depending on which side of the lake you're moving to,I'm nearby in scenic (ha ha ha)Locust Grove.
Since the title of the post is Butts County,I'm guessing you'll be nearby.The nearest range to me is the Griffin Gun Club.About $100.00 per year iirc.I'm not a member since I have no time to shoot and money just never seems to be there when I think of it.
Keep in touch and maybe I can help some and might have a new shootin' bud.
Btw,do you have family near here?
Robert.

You have Charlie Elliott out towards Mansfield and South River Gun Club towards Conyers.

CE is a State range, (i.e. free)
SRGC is a membership club. http://www.southrivergunclub.com/

I'm up in McDonough and I travel to C.E. for my shooting. It's a drive but I enjoy going there. I don't like paying membership fees and don't like old farts with their hunting rifles telling me I can't shoot an machine gun when I have a semiauto rifle but you can't tell them that.

How do you like the Navy? I've considered going in for this job:

US-GA-Atlanta-TELECOMMUNICATIONS :.

Status: Full Time, Employee

Worldwide. Position will require relocating.

A fleet of over 300 ships, 4000 aircraft and 380,000 personnel demands a complex system of communications and computer systems to function as a cohesive military unit. Sailors in the Telecommunications field maintain a full spectrum of communications, computer network and alarm systems, mapping and navigation devices, and complex, classified coding and decoding machinery and computers. Sailors in this field may even work in translating, interpreting and transcribing foreign-language communications data.

What will you do?
Telecommunications in the Navy is both an exciting and dynamic field that covers many means of communication. On a ship or submarine, you could be responsible for communicating orders for changes in engine speed from the bridge (ship’s command station) to the engine room or you could monitor communications and navigation systems in support of air, sea or shore units. You may even be in charge of an aircraft carrier’s closed circuit television and communications systems. As part of this Occupational Specialty, you might:
• Install, maintain and repair communications systems within ships and shore-based facilities
• Maintain and operate TV systems
• Install telephones and other communications circuits, boxes, switchboards and bell-buzzer systems
• Prepare and interpret blueprints, wiring diagrams and sketches
• Maintain and repair ship’s navigation equipment and plotters
• Work with classified data and information
• Work as a computer system analyst, systems or software programmer, or computer network technician

Skills and training
Fields in Telecommunications in the Navy offer a great opportunity to get hands-on experience operating vital communications and navigation equipment. Extensive training in solid-state electronic circuitry, electricity and applied mathematics may also be available. Advancements in pay grades take place after requirements are fulfilled. You could earn Department of Labor certifications, including:
• Audio-Video Repairer
Your training may also prepare you for future careers as a:
• Electrician
• Television Camera Operator
• Audiovisual Repair Technician
• Television and radio Repairer
• Station Installer and Repairer
• Central Office Repair Supervisor
• Electromechanical Technician

Educational opportunities
Most of the on-the-job training in the Telecommunications field directly translates to credit at colleges and universities. In this field, credits are awarded for courses taken on electricity, electronics and applied mathematics. Also, continued college education may be available through the Navy College Program and tuition assistance.

Career outlook
Telecommunication systems in today’s world are so commonplace that we often take for granted the incredibly advanced technologies that are required to operate them. Your knowledge of these technologies will allow you to accelerate your life in a career field that is part of the fiber of our lives and the future of human communication.

Qualifications
Applicant must be a U.S. Citizen, a high school graduate, less than 35 years of age, and in good health.

For more information, contact a Career Development Specialist at monster@cnrc.navy.mil (email), or 888-633-9674 (toll free).

Worldwide. Position will require relocating.

Any info you could provide?

Thanks,
Andy

Cute Andy,real cute.It was pretty funny though!Good thing I'm not from Butts County as some of those folks down there get a tad defensive at times.
Chas66,don't read this next part so you don't get mad at me as it's just a joke(one of my friends was in the Navy doing something with electronics way back when and one of my uncles was drafted in back during the Cuban Missle crisis so please don't think I have anything against the Navy):
Was that what got you to thinking about joining up Andy?????Hmm???Well???

Well the navy has been good to me. I went in the navy when I was 18, just out of high school and started my career in: Japan, Hawaii, California, Washington State, Mississippi and Virginia those are where I have been stationed. I had port calls in numerous countries like Australia and Italy, Spain, Alaska and Singapore. I have been in the navy for 18 and a half years now and I would do the same if I had a chance to do it again. You figure the army, marines and the air force guys don't have it as nice as we have it on ships when you get deployed. You can get a good education and college credits for just about anything you do.

HAHA Butts county is not in gay Georgia.

Dude, I don't think you get it. There IS a town called Gay. It IS located in Georgia. They hold the annual Cotton Pickin' Festival or something.

Fortunately, it's not in Butts County.

...oh, but if it were...
Link Posted: 9/4/2003 1:34:48 PM EDT
Yes there is a Gay GA.I think it's in Meriwether County down State Highway 85.I was there one time about 1975.I was driving my buddies brand new Trans Am and we were just wandering.We were low on gas and had to hunt for miles for Unleaded gas(imagine that).
I think the Cotton Pickin' Fair is the name of the annual shindig they throw.

As for the Navy,maybe I would have liked it.I took AF JROTC in high school and that showed me the service wasn't the place for me.I tend to get a little seasick on a 40 foot boat in the Gulf of Mexico in seas over 4 feet as it is so with my luck I'd be on a Destroyer or minesweeper or something even smaller!I don't know if I'd be able to get used to it or not.

Hee, Hee. So if you were a seaman in Butts would you be Gay? But the cotton pickin' got in the way. LOL.

I actually wanted to learn the Telecom stuff. Seems to be many jobs in that field with cell phone, computers, telephones, ect. Seems really interesting to me. I thought that sort of job training from the Navy would be good after I got out to get a job. If the firefighting thing bombs out then maybe I'll become a seaman. LOL.
