Smile New/Old Jesup, GA

Greetings, just rejoined but I was a member back in 04 & 05 but when the company I was working for got bought out my job was eliminated and things got a little tight. I'm retired now and all is well.

First, I would like to thank all that have served and are serving in our military! It is greatly appreciated!

Back in 2005, Ted Brown (Shooters Den) assembled a M14E2 clone from an USGI Springfield kit on a LRB receiver. That rifle is featured in Ted's gallery of photos at the 2005 Shot Show. Sadly, that beautiful firearm is gone, but don't dispare Ted now has my TRW kit that he will assemble into a standard service rifle on a GWLA receiver.

I do appreciate all the good information shared on this great forum!

Anyway, I'm glad to be back and if anyone is ever in the Brunswick, GA area come join us at the Coastal Georgia Gun Club. And many thanks to XXIV Corps for helping me resurrect my old user name.

Thanks from XXIV Corps

Yes, Rayonier mill on Hwy 301 at the Altamaha River. I was a forester with Brunswick Pulp, survived the Georgia Pacific buyout in 1988, but didn't survive the Koch buyout of GP in 2006.

Thanks for the welcome POLACK!

About the same time that Koch bought GP, International Paper bought Union Camp out. The pulp mill that IP has now is in Savannah.

IP probably laid off 200 foresters and GP (Koch) has probably laid off 150 foresters. A lot of the big paper companies have sold off their timberland.
