    Howdy..and welcome to the club! I'm partial to the 1911 myself no matter what I've told here. Standard issue in 1982.
    It's something I'll never completely shake. Just like riding a bicycle.
    So you want a holy war? How many holes would you like?

    Hi astrong85! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congrats on deciding to conceal carry and protect yourself and your loved ones. Thank you for your service to our country in WWII. (Just curious, how old were you in WWII?)

    To make a long story short, I was born in the Philippines in my Fathers Rubber plantation. He was a Navy Doctor Spanish American war. My family was active in the guerilla movement. We were liberated on Mar.1945 by the Oregon national guard. My 4 brothers and I served as guides and scouts during the 4 month mop up. I was 14 years old.ALEX 1945.jpg

    Greetings from Richmond/Rosenberg, TX

    And thank you for your service. If not for people like you we'd be speaking German (or Japanese) today.
