    Post Hello All.

    I'll start with a little clarification so you don't think I'm some kind of Rambo/Dirty Harry wannabe.

    My username is part acronym and part category. I participate in Cowboy Action Shooting and compete in a category called Gunfighter which is fun by the way as I shoot my 5 1/2" .45 SAA clones simultaneously usually alternating shots.

    Anyway, I think I fired my first handgun, a .22 High Standard Longhorn Double Nine under close supervision when I was 8 at which time I was pretty free to roam the farm with a Red Ryder, grew up in a house with guns and knew where the key to the cabinet was since probably age 12.

    I've got a couple Belgium Browning Deer Rifles in addition to my Cowboy Action guns and in the last couple years I got my CCW, was bit by the 1911 bug and have been into Dan Wesson 1911's. For CCW leather I have been fortunate enough to run across deals on nice used Milt Sparks: W6, Heritage and Exec Companion. And an Andrews MacDaniel II. That was all after I bought some inexpensive Galco, Ross and Bianchi pieces to see if I was an IWB or OWB kinda guy.

    Since Carrying isn't always just guns I'd mention that I like knives too although I don't have anything real fancy. I co instructed some edged weapon defense courses for LEOs back in my serious Martial Arts days and I am pretty proud of my contributions to the side of The Good Fight.

    I was linked to the forum by your very own moderator extraordinaire Bud White after I bought a donated HBE Leatherworks holster in a silent auction with proceeds going to Saint Judes Childrens Research Hospital. I am currently reading through the "rollercoaster" of a thread about Eric and weighing whether to order a matching belt and mag holder from him eventually. Funds will prohibit my doing so for a time but so far my communication with Eric has been nothing short of exemplary so I hope that all his trials are in the past so I can get a full rig together someday.

    Anyway, it looks like there is alot of useful information ion your forum and I look forward to having a look around.

    Robert

    Welcome from Montana.

    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.

    Welcome aboard!

    As a CAS guy, perhaps you can chime in on the SxS shotgun (coach gun) thread that's running. Someone's interested in the various models out there. Though, I haven't been to any of the CAS shoots. If you can suggest more mfrs and where to look, I'm sure it would be appreciated.
