    Howdy from the Chihuahuan desert

    I live in the Big Bend area of Texas. I'm old enough to collect Social Security, been reloading for 40 plus years and carrying for over 20. A retired RN, I'm now a Justice of the Peace. Started out with S&W revolvers (a J frame still slips in once in a while) then moved to Colt 1911s. I'm starting to have back/hip issues so I'm transitioning to a Glock 36 due to the lighter weight. Have posted on a couple of other well known gun boards since the late 90s (my usual user name belongs to someone else here) and lurked here for some time, so figured I'd sign up. Well, HOWDY!

    Hello! Happy you are here!
    I would rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.

    Welcome to the forum. Had an uncle who settled in Texas after his service in WWII. He wouldn't have lived anywhere elsefor any reason.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    ==================

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
