    Another Howdy from Colorado

    Just another retired old ph@rt, who doesn't really kmow all that much but is determined to have an opinion nevertheless.

    Been playing around with firearms for ... ummm about 60 years now I guess, Military(USMC) and some LEO and Private Investigation background, mostly other employment.

    Lots of years hunting, fishing, some pistol competitiion waay back there.

    Twenty odd years as a mainframe consultant had me traveling continuiously, so I've lived a lot of places.

    But always getting in as much shooting as possible.

    Been lurking here a bit since I stumbled accross your site, and I really like what I see.

    Pretty active on a couple other forums, I believe I'll learn a thing or two from the folks here ... and that's a GOOD thing!

    Nice to meet you all!

    Regards,

    I Thank you for the kind welcome, wouldn't have blamed you if you'd thrown rocks and sikked the dogs on me. Glad you didn't ... yet!

    wmhawth, thank you for the Welcome from Mesa county, pure coincidence but I happen to be in Mesa County.

    Getting here was a long and probably boring story, took about 50 years, but I finally made it, just arrived in June after about a year and a half trying to find someplace to live here without crashing with the kids and their families for too long.

    Worth the trouble just to escape the Socialist Tax ... ummm ... Heck, we were in, the corrupt one with no CCW. No not that one, the one just North of there.

    That's after we decided to sell the old family homestead in SD, another long and boring story.

    Just going through the hoops now to get my CO CC. And No, I will not CC while waiting, the OC rules and Vehicle laws here are adequate for now, even if I do feel Nekked most of the time.

    Kinda strange (I was a State LE Instructor in IL a long time ago) and the course is very basic but heavy on safety and that's a good thing, we all need the reminders on a regular basis, maybe especially ... ummm ... seasoned citizens like myself who do have a tendency to think we have all the answers.

    Well, sometimes we do but that's just for the three questions we know about, it's the other 99 we never thought of that cause us trouble.

    Thanks again for the Welcome, Good to be here!

    Regards,
