Hello eveybody...I guess I'm the newest guy on the board so I though it only fitting and proper to introduce myself. I'm an old retired U. S. Navy, CPO of 22 years 5 months and 10 days...then it stopped being fun!! Been shooting various guns for the last 40 years or so and if it goes "bang" I like it! Mainly interested in handguns although I've been known to do some long range prairie doggin' now and then. Started carrying "seriously" the last few years...and probably like most of you, still looking for that "perfect carrying piece!" So far I don't know what I like, but I sure do have lots of pieces in the gun safe that I don't!!! :-) I've picked the name of "Phalanx" from the newest U.S. Navy Fire Control System because it shoots ALMOST AS FAST AS I DO!!
