    Howdy Y'all from Washington State

    Howdy guys.

    Just a quick note to say howdy and introduce myself.

    I live in Arlington, WA with my wife and two kids. I'm a shop foreman for a heavy equipment attachment company. I enjoy hunting, fishing, shooting, reloading, anything outdoors.

    I spent 8 years in the US Army. I enlisted as a Avionics flight systems tech, but soon cross trained into being a Blackhawk helicopter mechanic and crew chief. When they found out how well I could shoot, I was made captain of the battalion shooting team. A bunch of us rotor heads went up against some of the best infantry units in the country and came out 2nd! We were stoked to say the least.

    My current carry weapon is a Beretta 92F (kinda grew fond of them while in the Army). I purchased it from a local police department when they replaced them with Glocks. My birthday is coming up in May, so maybe there will be a nice Kimber in line for me.
    Confuse a liberal, use logic and facts.

    Welcome to the forum.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    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.
