    New guy from Oregon

    Hi, I'm a Brit that's been living in Eugene, Oregon since 1999 (Hence ORBrit). Started shooting aged 12 as an Army Cadet - then went through Army Officer training at Sandhurst while in the OTC, then went on to RAF Officer training and then RAF Regiment.
    Started carrying about 2 years ago - Glock 19.
    Other contents of the safe: Mossberg 590, Ruger 10/22, Ruger MkIII.

    Obviously most of my firearms experience has been in a military setting so I'm looking to learn more about the civilian, home and personal defense side of things.

    Greetings from Northern Michigan
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.
