    Hello From Massachusetts

    Hey folks! It's been awhile since I've last posted, so I figured I'd re-introduce myself. Been a shooting & hunting aficionado for more than 50 years now. This is my 65th. year living in MA, which is one of the most regulated and restrictive states there is, when it comes to hand gun ownership.

    When I was in the Navy I shot .45 & .22 (both on 1911's) in competition at Great Lakes, for almost 2 years (before being sent overseas to the DMZ). Have had my LTC here in MA ever since I returned from military service.

    Within the last 1/2 dozen years, I've been giving into my wheel gun loves. Bought a Ruger SP-101 (2") & GP-100 (6"), both in .357 magnum a little over 2 years ago. Also have an old (1977 vintage) Colt Single Action Army in .45 LC which I love! However, I mainly shoot the SP at the range almost weekly with my own handloads. I CC most of my waking hours, 24/7.

    Looking forward to learning new things and sharing thoughts with regards to CC and self defense of oneself, family and friends. Thanks for allowing to join in here.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
