    Hello, another guy from Arkansas

    New to this forum, it looks promising. Prior service, USAF Security Police, nuclear security 1979-1989. I'm a computer geek now, but I'm also a part time LEO with a small department here in NW Arkansas. I collect guns and shoot whenever I can. Have shot IDPA, SASS and service competition.

    Johnson PD. We're right between Springdale and Fayetteville. When I say right between, I mean our city limit butts up against Fayetteville on the south and Springdale on the north. Makes for some interesting traffic through here. What department are you with in Russellville?

    Welcome aboard. I had better watch myself when traveling through that area. I live just south of Joplin Mo.

    Welcome. Although I'm from Illinois I have a special place in my heart for Arkansas. Used to go there every year when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s. My grandmother lived in a little town called St Paul, ever heard of it? It's probably grown since then but used to be able to throw a rock from end to end. Beautiful place tucked away in the mountains. Kind of like Mayberry in the Ozarks. God I miss it.

    St. Paul would be in Madison County, where I grew up. Ten years in the USAF and another 9 living and working in Wyoming got rid of most of my southern accent, but I still moved back here when I had the chance. You're right, NW Arkansas is pretty nice.

    Yeah, yeah, I was a skycop. Competed in Olympic Arena at Vandenburg AFB, '85, '86 and '87. The 90th SMW won the Blanchard trophy twice in that stretch, so I'm proud of the part I played. Make as many jokes as ya want, I'm sure that some of the guys around here haven't heard 'em all yet.
