    We do have a thread actually which has had great responses - to get info from all folks who have served - just forget the link right now.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ahhh here we are - Veteran's Roll call - gives a lot of excellent info on who has done what, including I think some currently serving folks.

    A lot! I'm dreaming of a P-220 SAS next!

    The trigger is a sweet smooth 6 lbs. No double action to single action transition. Very safe for CCW to me. tnx!

    (hey, so far 2 Marines and 9 from other branches... looks like we have `em surrounded!)

    I always like this one better. "We're surronded, that simplifies the problem. Now we can shoot in any direction."

    So Carrying and TC are both from Michigan and so am I....I'm starting to see a trend of people that live near Detroit joining the Marines and then carrying pistols at home...connection? I'm originally from Taylor BTW

    I was a Navy Machinist Mate Chief Petty Officer specializing in Nuclear Propulsion and Radiological Controls while on active duty, and attached to a Construction Batallion while in the reserves during Desert Storm. I was also a California Highway Patrolman for seven years. So I guess I could've voted twice.
