    New Guy From Texas

    Howdy. I just heard about this site today, and as I am getting ready to get my CHL (waited a long time, I just turned 50). So I am looking at as much info as I can. I work with bigiceman and he hooked me up.

    I recently purchased an XDM and XDSC in .40 S&W. I also have a Series 70 Mark IV Gold Cup, a homebuilt 1911 and some revolvers. I got away from shooting for several years (10+) and I am back with a vengence. Ask my wallet. Anyway, I recently crashed at the racetrack on my motorcycle and have an injured right thumb. So I have learned to shoot left handed with my XD's, so hopefully someday I will get the right one back and shoot normally again.

    Here is what it looks like when I don't crash at the track

    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.
