    Getting out of the Corps and would like to do a meetup sometime

    It's been a long time since I have posted on here. But as stated on May 22nd I will be on terminal leave and will be driving home to Lakewood from Camp Pendleton, CA. When I get back I would like to do a meetup with my fellow OCers since I will be living in Washington permently from then on. ( Yes Im Already a WA resident and do have my CPL). So if anybody was any suggestions that would be nice.

    Thanks for your service, and welcome back to WA. Best thing to do is just post a date/time/location of your choosing, if not you will get a different answer with each post. Are you looking for work? If so the place I work at is hiring, just PM me.

    There are a couple regular meetups the closest to you would be in Federal Way on the second Saturday of the month.

    If such things matter to you, most of the ranger officers at Wade's Eastside Guns are Marines. Those that aren't are all ex-military of some sort.

    Thank you for your service and welcome home.

    Yeah, you know I applied for a job at Wade's. They offered $10/hr.
    40 min commute one way plus traffic? Needless to say I did not accept the job. They told me there would be no room for advancement for at least a year. It would have actually cost me money to work there.

    Your point would be what?

    Mine was that if he wanted a friendly place to shoot, Wade's has a lot of young men working there that he could relate to.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your post. I thought you were posting as a potential place of employment.
