    Hello from California

    Hi all, name is Dan and I just found this site and thought I's check it out. I'm 51 and a retired police officer and am looking at getting into competitive shooting with IDPA and IPSC. Don't know much about it but it looks like fun. I've been riding motorcycles since I was 10, but the back is now shot and the Doc said no more motorcycles, so thought I'd get back into shooting. Looking at getting a 1911 for competition and CCW. Currently have a Ruger P89 9mm but am thinking about upgrading to something bigger (any excuse for a new toy!).

    Well, that's pretty much it. Hope to find some interesting things on the site.
    Dan'o :}

    You know of course that since you joined just before Christmas, that you have to give all greeters new Glocks.

    No he doesn't. That only applies to moderators that greet him.

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about no more riding. Not sure I could give it up.
