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.

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

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.
