    Hello, Folks

    My name is Walter, and I'm sure I'm the newest member of this
    forum, since I only signed up ten minutes ago.

    I've been a "shooter" for forty years, give or take, and I don't
    see me quitting it anytime soon. I've been carrying concealed
    for ten years, since very shortly after Texas passed the ccl law.

    I spent a couple of years in the Marine Corps in the late 60s,
    into 1970, doing a little shooting for "Uncle Sam" in S.E. Asia.

    I consider the M-1 Garand and the Colt 1911-A1 the two most
    important firearm designs of the 20th century. And I own one
    of each. But for my concealed-carry weapon of choice, it is,
    depending on circumstances, either a Walther PPK (Interarms)
    .380 acp or a CZ 2075 RAMI .40 S&W.

    I've been a member and an infrequent contributor to TFL and THR
    for a couple of years now, and I look forward to giving this forum
    equal attention.

    Walter
