    Howdy from Washington State

    I have made a few posts already, but I think I should introduce myself
    I have recently gotten back into shooting, after many years away from guns. I was a Security Policeman in the Air force, and that was about 18 years ago. I applied for my CCW 2 weeks and 3 days ago It sure is irritating when you have decided to carry and you have to wait maybe a month (in Washington) to do it. But that's a whole other discussion :-)

    Yep, it's like riding a bicycle.....I haven't forgotten ;-) I have run 600 rounds through my FNP-9 and I'm looking forward to tomorrow morning, where I'll blast another 100-200 through it ;-)
    One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.
