I've been a 'member' for quite sometime but have not posted until recently.
I grew up in NDak and Montana. Hunting, reloading and shooting has been my favorite hobby since the late '40s. (My father had a sporting goods/gun store until 1959). Recently retired after 42 years in the Corporate 'Pressure Cooker', and can now spend my time reloading, shooting and hunting --- as well as keeping house for my spouse who is still working for a short while longer.
I'm a Colt guy but have had to break away from that. Too many good alternatives in the market. I have a CCW permit and now carry all the time. (The bad guys are everywhere!!) I have a range of pistols that accompany me, depending upon the season. My favorite is a Kimber CDP II, .45ACP.
I really enjoy this site. I hope to gain lots of good tips and knowledge from it!!
