    Say hello to the FNG!

    Hi everyone! I wandered over here from THR after someone posted a link and it felt like coming home. I'm a 22 year old ex-Army college student living in PA and just got my CCW permit this summer. In addition to attending school, I'm currently employed in the hunting sales department at a locally-owned sporting goods store. Which basically means that I get to play with guns all day and have a grand old time doing it. Right now I'm packing a Kel-Tec P11 as my daily carry since it's all I can afford at the moment, but I'm saving up for a Colt Commander to replace it. I've been lurking for a little while now and decided it was time to properly introduce myself and say hello before I dive in with a few questions. So hi again, and thanks for running such a nice forum. The level of discussion here is far above average compared to most other forums I've visited.

    Welcome aboard, Roadrunner!

    The Colt Commander is an excellent choice. Long live the 1911!


    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.
