    Old Swabby from New Mexico

    New Here. Got my first firearm in 1964. Been shooting and collecting since. Retired Navy Master Chief Gunners Mate. 'Nam Vet.
    I shot for the US Navy with the 1911 and the M-14. I was an instructor for BUDS ( Boot UDT/SEALS ) in San Diego.
    I run New Mexico Military Surplus Rifle Pistol Shooters ( NM MILSUPRS ). We compete from 15 -1,000 yards. We shoot at stationary and moving targets that I remotely control.
    I've been building firearms since 1967. My CCW pistols are a 1911 compact ( my build) using the Safety-Fast system for winter carry.
    Kel-Tec P3AT for summer carry. Car Gun is a converted Makarov to .32NAA.
    Hope to be some help here and may learn a thing to two in the process.

    Welcome from Tennessee...US Navy 92-96
    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. -

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    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.
