    New member from AZ

    Hello all,

    The name is Lon, and I live in central AZ. I have recently renewed my CCW after letting it lapse for a couple of years. I am blessed to live in a state that allows both open and concealed carry. I am a Marine with 17 years active duty and at this time 18 years inactive, currently earning a living doing autobody work. Married twice, 18 years so far for this one (I think she might be a keeper), love guns and Harleys, and am seriously concerned with the direction this country is headed.

    Lon

    I had a friend that went 19yrs and 6 months, got out and went into the reserves to finish it out, so his retirement won't start until age 65 or so, just to keep his ex-wife from collecting half. Now that's bitter!

    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.
