    Cool Back in my happy place

    I am returning to the world of gun forums after a somewhat long hiatus. The amount of forum commandos and self-proclaimed special tactical operators were starting to remove me from my happy place. But now I have had a nice cleansing breath and am ready to discuss all things gun related. Plus after doing some searching and asking around it seems like this might just be the forum for me, less ninjas and more knowledge.

    I'm on the job, served as a FI and armorer for over a decade, have been to several LEO and non-LEO schools, understand what shall not be infringed means, have tempted fate with a Dremel (won and lost), believe a shooter needs a dozen or more mags per gun, love Jesus (almost as much as He loves me), occasionally find holsters in drawers for guns I don't even own, am not sure why the .40 even exists (but don't find fault with people who do), don't think wheel guns are old school, will only vote for pro-gun candidates and tend to buy guns made in America. I think that about covers my introduction.

    Hi mlk18! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! You sure have shared enough in one post to fuel many threads! But I get the feeling you're not telling us everything!
