    'Sort of New' from Kansas

    Hi 'yall!!

    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!!
    Regards,
    'Desperado'

    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.
