    Newbie from Alabama

    New to this forum from the Birmingham, Alabama area. I've owned several handguns throughout my lifetime (I'm retired now), but have narrowed things down a bit later in life. I currently own three handguns: A Sig P238 SAS Two Tone, a Sig C3 with Crimson Trace Grips and Magwell, and a Colt/Walther (distributed by Umarex) 1911 22LR which I use to stay up on my 1911 skills without breaking the bank. For CCW, I generally carry the P238 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II with an IWB Magazine pouch to match. If I'm riding my HD bike, I carry in my vest. The C3 is a relatively new aquisition, so I have a Brigade Leather M-11 Custom IWB holster w/ matching IWB Mag pouch coming, so that I can carry it when weight/room is less of a factor (I'm a small guy). The Colt 22LR is a great gun for target practice and general plinking, and since the operation is the same as other 1911's, keeps my muscle memory fresh. I do shoot the others, but just not as much since break-in.

    Glad to have found this forum and always ready to learn new things.

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
