    New kid on the thread

    Hello. I am from the woods of northern Minnesota. I am a US Navy Vietnam-era veteran, former LEO, retired, and owner of several firearms-long guns as well as handguns. As I have a case of Dunlop disease, I am limited in places on my rotund body I can carry concealed so I carry a KelTec.380 in the summer and a Glock 26 or PF-9 in the winter.

    I was in to see my investment counselor the other day and asked him what I should invest in.....He replied "canned goods & ammo". Smart man.

    Thanks. Hope I can share some of my old knowledge with other members. Still remember how to disassemble a 1911 .45 from bootcamp November 1961. That scares me because I often forget our anniversary.

    Thank you for your military service during wartime (don't care what the government called it, it was a war) especially and for your LEO service as well. Welcome from St. Charles, Missouri.
