    New From MN

    Long time lurker and finally joined. Great forum with lots of great information and helpful members. I've owned guns most of my life except for a 7 year stint while stationed in Spain. Most of my weapons have been long guns until my father passed away a couple years ago and I inherited all of his reloading equipment and his collection which included quite a few handguns from a S&W mod. 1917, Mod 29 to a GP100 and a bunch in between. I've spent the last two years shooting all of them with my boys and this drove me to purchase my first handgun, a Ruger 1911 and now I'm waiting on my second, a G26 which I plan on carrying CCW as soon as I take the class.

    I'm looking forward to continued learning here and sharing in the dialogue.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.
