I'm from that hotbed of armed criminal intent and home of chaotic mayhem--Iowa. I've been carrying for 10 years--starting out with a truly suck-water S&W auto, graduating to (ewww) a Taurus...After a short time that found a new home and I went to Beretta, then to HK. What a difference!
As the name implies, I am an HK fan (gotta love that brutal german engineering). I give equal nod to GLOCK, which I use in IDPA and USPSA Limited competition. Nothing other than combat reveals the shortcomings of a design better than a good USPSA match.
I did the better part of a decade in the USMC, all spent driving tanks and Amtracs. When the 1911 guys start using phrases like "Big Bore", I get a little private chuckle. In my world, that's 105mm or better...<g>
Thanks guys! I hope to be seeing more of ya.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
