    Greetings from Central Arkysaw

    Howdy,

    Signing in from Maumelle, Arkansas. You can call me Griff. I'm AD USAF, an NCO, married w/children, pretty much raised around firearms and have had to carry a sidearm as a part of my duties for some of my career. I'd like to get in to a bit more armorer-type tinkering w/weapons, as I've already done some light armorer duties in my career, tho nothing terribly intricate.

    Originally from the greater Kansas City, MO, area, but lived in Hot Springs, AR, from the age of 10 to 23 - which is when I Enlisted. Spent 9 years in New Mexico (Holloman AFB), where I met my wife. Did a year tour at Suwon AB, RoK, then came here to Little Rock AFB, where I've been for well over 8 years.

    I like the Springfield Armory XD line of pistols and get a great deal of enjoyment out of going to the range and shooting on a fairly regular basis. I've got the XD-40 Service (4") and XD-40 Sub-Compact. I've been shooting an average of about once a week for the past two months, now that I put some thought in to it. I do a lot of shooting at The Shooters Gallery, which resides under Don's Weaponry on East Broadway in North Little Rock. I've already put about 1,500 rounds thru the XD-40 SC.

    I think it has to do w/preparing for the pending Zombie Apocalypse.





    Anyhow, found the site thru a co-worker - who's Username I forgot to ask earlier today when he told me about te forum. I'll mostly be a lurker here, but have already picked up some interesting info.

    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
