    Hi from the Pacific NW

    Just found out about this site through one of the other forum sites I frequent (RimfireCentral.com - Hobby and Info Source For All Rimfire Caliber Ammo and Firearms).

    I live in SW Washington State, just north of Vancouver (which is just north, and across the river from Portland Oregon). I have had my CCW permit for 10 years now. It has come in handy a couple of time, though no shots were fired thankfully.

    Mostly I carry a North American Arms .22lr. . . . .

    Ok, just joking. . though I do actually own one. My two primary carry guns are a Taurus M85CH that I bought new ~15 years ago. And a Springfield Armory Micro .45. Both are in Stainless.

    I also hang out on Glock Talk quite a bit. Use to be over in rec.gun for years and years, but haven't visited there in a long time.

    I'm a SW engineer by education, but work as an Intellectual Property Analyst for a mega global electronics company.

    Welcome
    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.

    Welcome from Monatana.


    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
