    Hi from Minnesota

    Hi there.....

    Former Canadian police officer transplanted to Duluth, Minnesota - now a citizen of the U.S. working in corrections. I have carried since the age of 21 (sadly that's 23 years ago!), and continue to research, train and learn all I can about defensive tactics, situational awareness, combat handgun skill development, rifle shooting, and reloading. My wife (a Swedish-American blonde who enticed me down to America) recently completed a CCW course, so I'm looking forward to training with her, and dabbling in some IDPA competitions.

    Welcome from Arkansas.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Welcome from Montana.


    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.

    Rudyard Kipling
