    Everone say hello to the new guy!

    I am a virgin at this blogging thing. I've always been so busy with school and work. Any way. about my back ground with guns.
    I joined the Marines right out of high school in 2004. I went on the reserves side of the house because I wanted to do the officer program and fly helicopter for the marines. After Basic Training I went on to marine Combat training and then from there I went to good old Lawton Oklahoma for Artillary training. Jump forward a little bit, I shoot everyother day at my buddies house here in Colorada. I bought my first hand gun which was a sig P220 .45 caliber the day I turned 21. I will never forget because I missed a midterm waiting for my background check to get cleared at the gun store. Needless to say I have put about 7,000 rounds in my P220 and I have NEVER had a misfeed or a stove pipe or a double feed ever! About 2 days after my birthday I got a copy of my DD214 and went to my local sheriffs office and applied for my CCW license. I told the sheriff my back ground in the Marines with a combat tour in Fallujah Iraq, and that I have shot every gun in the Marine Corps arsenal except for the .50 cal sniper rifle. 40 days later my CCW license arrived by mail and it was like Christmas all over again. between my armed security job with Immegration and customs Enforcement (ICE) and me carry my sig, there is not one day that goes by that I don't have a gun on my body!
    Thanks for reading

    Welcome from South Carolina!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    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.

    Rudyard Kipling
