    Just an old Jarhead

    Name's John, from Memphis. I'm a retired Marine working for US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) (watch the DHS show, you'll see Memphis around show 8, 9, and/or 10). A little boring, somewhat overblown, but more or less accurate.
    I carry a 1911A1, heavily modified. Old WWII gun, but the only remaining original pieces are slide and frame. US&S gun (don't scream, it was already in poor condition when I got it 32 years ago). When I'm underdressed, I carry a Beretta 1934, in .380. It feeds everything I can find!? I like Galco and Mernickle leather, and Blackhawk synthetics. When carrying, I'm required to carry cuff's as well, so use a Safariland cuff/mag case. Well made, as usual, and more comfortable than Galco's paddles.

    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.

    Hello John from Memphis! Old Jarhead here myself, and oddly enough carried a 1911A1 for quite a while when I got out of the service.

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
