Howdy from Western Canada!

Have played casually on bar nights with the buddies and often after school as a teenager. Have recently rekindled my interest in playing and getting better. Just ordered my first cue from Nielson's Billiards after reading great reviews about them here. Eagerly awaiting my PureX cue to arrive now which seemed like a good stick to get my feet wet with.
 
Hello all from Tennessee.

I play only for fun at home and had to sell a relatively inexpensive pool table when I moved several years ago. I am finally in a position to buy another table and am trying to learn more about tables and playing pool in general. And that’s how I stumbled across this forum. It looks like a great place.

Introduce yourself, tell us where you hail from and a bit about yourself.

Brand new here from Louisiana but not to billiards. I’m a bit of a 9 ball specialist because I enjoy that game the most. I just started my journey back into tournament 9 ball form. I haven’t taken a shot since 2003 when I got married. My old cue was a plain Jane 20 ounce huebler with no wrap or inlays. I sold it in 2004 after getting married. I just bought a 20 once Viking B2001 natural stain, no wrap, no inlays, v-pro shaft, Lepro medium tip. The wood and construction seem way better than my circa 2000 model huebler. I haven’t had a chance to shoot with yet due my son’s basketball and not having a table but the cue looks and feels super solid with excellent balance. I look forward to asking you gurus many questions as I get better. Here a link to my cue

New here from Flower Mound, TX (north of the DFW Airport in Dallas). We bought an oversized 8' McIntyre table (made here in the Fort Worth area) on the cheap from someone in our neighborhood. I have never "learned" to play other than just playing for fun in college - now nearly 30 years ago. My 14yo son and I have been playing 8b for about 6 months just to have some good bonding time. The table slates were not set up properly, but it was a good start. Redoing our game room flooring this weekend and going to have the table recovered and set up by a professional. Will be ready to roll by next weekend. I've been lurking while waiting for my account to be approved to post. Some of the table restorations are mind blowing. Think I may start off with a 5 gallon bucket ball polishing contraption that is more of a "redneck approved" type operation.
