    New Member from Colorado

    Read the forum rules and well, they reflect the only kind of web site I join.

    I've had a close relationship with firearms all my life, and after nearly 20 years of no shooting, recently rekindled the interest in shooting as a hobby. But, while I'm not a paranoid and have no white knight fantasies, recently I've become interested in 'practical' self-defense and concealed carry. Not sure why.

    I can certainly field strip an M1911 blindfolded, but while I know 'always loaded, always downrange, and always check the chamber', I know little else about what's happening in shooting. I've thrown my American Rifleman magazines away without even looking at them for at least 25 years.

    Hope to sit back, 'listen', and learn. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome from Montana.

    You should read those American Rifleman magazines.


    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.
