    Hello from SW Florida

    I've just been getting back into shooting ... It's been 3 or so years since I've been to the range. I've been working 2 jobs and just didn't seem to have the time. Well, I quit the 2nd job, started surfing gun sites and got back to the range a couple of weeks ago ... what a great feeling! I've missed it ... and regret selling a bunch of guns. I still have a Glock 35 and a S&W snubbie. I also let my FL CCW expire a few years back, so I plan to take another class this Sunday.

    Anyway, I've been reading a bunch on this and other sites and appreciate the info!

    Jim

    Welcome from another SW Floridian! I'm just south of the Charlotte County line.

    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.
