    Howdy From Mile High!

    Hey ya'll! Found this site through ConcealedCarry magazine so thought I'd stop by and introduce myself. I am an Engineer by trade, a shootist at heart & mind, and a perpetual student (and every now & then a teacher)!! I shoot IDPA time permitting, and believing that each voice counts, involve myself in the political battles with the anti-gunners for all our collective rights to be armed. Been carrying for 30+ years but only the last 6 years with a bonifide, legalfied permit. Look forward to some interesting, thought provoking discussions & exchange of information with all you like minded individuals!

    Welcome Deke

    Your post caught my eye as I was born in Colorado Springs. I've lived in Boulder, Fort Collins, Loveland, Fort Morgan, Steamboat Springs, and Kiowa County. (Brandon) I've spent time in Denver but have been in Las Vegas since '88. I probably wouldn't recognize Denver today. Welcome to the forum. I'm a newbie myself, but like the group. There's no end to the good information here, and, I think, some darned nice people.
