I'm one of the old guys. When I was born, Truman was President.
As a kid, I grew up with guns but never had much use for them myself. Then about three years ago, something in my brain clicked on and I decided to take a pistol class.
Since then I have fired a minimum of 10,000 rounds per year (and have the empty wallet to prove it).
My main carry gun is a S&W640 snubbie loaded with Speer Gold Dot JHP 135gr 38special +p. Sometimes I carry my Kimber Custom TLE II loaded with Speer Gold Dot 230Gr JHP. On rare occasion, I will carry my S&W620.
I compete frequently in USPSA competitions, go to the range weekly and get additional training as often as the finance minister (she who must be obeyed) will let me.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment as originally intended by our Founding Fathers.
I use the same user name on every forum I frequent because I lack imagination. Heck, at my age I'm happy to remember my real name.
I consider myself an activist, so I open carry frequently just to let the people know that good guys DO carry guns, but mostly I carry concealed.
Finally, (as you have already noted, perhaps) I suffer from oral diariha.

PaulG you sound like a man after my own heart. I was in grade school when Truman was president.
"Finance Minister"....that's priceless! Welcome from RI.

Excellent, another Senior Citizen! Welcome, PaulG.
Got ya beat by a few years, FDR was the Prez when I came into this world.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Paul welcome to the forum.
BTW: You're not the only one on this forum that can remember Truman!

Welcome to CC! Glad to have you with us!
Welcome Paul....back when I was a USAF butter bar, we used to call the spouse "Higher Headquarters."

My 'Higher Headquarters' and I got married in 1974 and after 32 years she still refers to our relationship as 'our 5 wonderful years of marriage'
I look forward to being a regular here.

Welcome, Paul. I was born in Janurary of the year the Chicago Tribune declared "Dewey Wins!" So I too have been around a while. Glad you found us and look forward to your participation in CC.
