    Retired, Not Dead -- Yet

    Greetings, all.
    Just wanted to say hello from Florida's Gulf Coast, where the weather's warm, shoes close with Velcro and most people drive a Mercury Grand Marqui (very s-l-o-w-l-y).
    Have been a member and participant of several other boards; this one looks very interesting.
    Began as a wheel-gun-guy and have now transitioned to mainly autoloaders (9mm & .45 ACP), but still keep a S&W .38 Spl. for some "social situations."
    I look forward to your knowledge, comments and conversation.
