    New Member from Wendell,N.C.

    I have enjoyed reading this forum and finally decided to jump in. I am a retired LEO and currently work parttime in a gun store. My passions other than my family are cowboy action shooting and a long lasting love of Colt's 1911's. I have carried 1911's for 40 years, first off-duty and later as my primary. Being older than a number of members I have at least two boxes of holsters that were the "greatest end all concealmant rigs" ever and that doesn't count the ones I sold or gave away.

    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.
