Hi my name is Casey, I live in Spokane, WA. I have had my cpl for about two years now. What I'm wearing dictates what I carry with me I have a small 2" .357 mag Rossi 461 and a 5" Para P14 LDA. love them both, I'm currently looking into purchasing a new pistol for carry, 1). Springfield XD in .45 ACP 2). H&K USP Compact in .45ACP 3). a Kahr in .45 ACP. Obviously i'm going with a polymer based firearm, just haven't decided on which one will work the best for every day concealment.
I am hoping to be able to join the ARMY here soon (January ) plan on going Infantry with the prospect of going through and passing both the Airborne and Ranger courses.
Hobbies would include various shooting sports, Racing, working on my car ('67 Barracuda Fastback), Hunting/camping, and making money.

Welcome to the forum, and good luck with you ambitions in Ranger training.

I suggest you talk with someone in / or recent former serive before signing on. A few of my buddies have indicated Infantry is o.k. , but learning a skill is better and you should still be able to go Ranger or airborne.
One of my best buddies was an Airborne MP, so the opportunities are there. At any rate, good luck.

Hi, Welcome to the Forum!
Welcome from Middle Tennessee, and good luck in the Army!
Welcome from Alabama. The first new car I owned was a 1967 Barracuda notchback. I kept it until the 1970 Duster came out and bought one of those with the 340 engine. The 273 and the 340 were great engines.
