    Hello from Oregon

    Welp, I’m a new guy here. A little about me-self:

    Born and raised in a smallish town (Milwaukie) outside Portland, Oregon.

    Drafted (among the last) into the Army in 1972.

    First the Army made me a Watercraft Operator (landing craft) - I don’t swim.

    I switched to Arty as a Forward Observer in 1974 - after I got “just missed” by my own units guns, I asked myself what the future looked like for an ex-FO in the civilian world; the answers didn’t look promising.

    Made my final switch to what was known as the US Army Security Agency (USASA or ASA) in ’75 - loved it!

    When they finally deactivated the last of ASA in ’78 I remained with Military Intelligence until I retired in ’94.

    Today I’m a sergeant with a Department of Public Safety (College Law Enforcement).

    My hobbies are -

    Firearms (Collect, shoot, and teach. I shot competition for almost twenty years, taught [coached] for about eighteen years, was a Plant Manager for Kimber Firearms, etc…)

    History (especially Historical Reenactment [French and Indian Wars, Civil War, and American Mountain Man periods)

    Gaming (primarily Strategy [Age of Empires, Total War, Civilization] and First Person Shooter [Rainbow 6/Raven Shield, Call of Duty, America’s Army], and have recently decided to try out Flight Sims [Microsoft CFS 1, 2, and 3; and now AH2])

    Teaching ([OK, this is also one of the jobs I’ve had / I do - but I do it for free also because I like it.] Shooting [as mentioned above], Hunter Ed [specialty classes like handgun hunting, muzzleloader hunting, tracking/trailing, survival, etc…] Use of Force, Baton and OC, Field Training and Evaluation Program, etc…)

    Photography (just getting back into it after twenty years away - love these new digital cameras)

    Here are some of my shots:

    First is of me. Second is of my Kahr PM9 - my usuall CCH. Third is my S&W 625-2 (and a Javilina I took with it in Arizona). Fourth is my Uberti Schofield and my original US Krag Carbine. I have others.

    Peace to all,

    Welcome

    Welcome ASA335 from Missouri. So you got yourself a Javilina. Thats a small boar isn't it. I went boar hunting with a 45. I was told not to but did not understand why they thought it did not have enough penatration. Well I took it down with one shot but did have to give it a love tap to move it along. You'll like this forum.

    Thanks all!

    Yeah, a small (25 - 40 lbs) pig.

    The wildlife biologist there told me Javalina are not pigs, but are rodents. Something to do with the skeletal structure of their foot; but I said "If it looks like a pig, roots like a pig, smells like a pig, and squeels like a pig - it's a pig. Maybe you guys shouldn't go more than skin deep in some cases."

    By the way, it was very tasty

    In Pursuit,
