    New kid (old fart)

    Hello, from sunny (when it not raining) Florida. I’m a Florida native, VietNam Vet (medic). Seen too many changes here, might be moving to SC. Not sure which state to hold a residential CCW. So far my meger collection consist of:
    · an older Charter Arms 38 undercover. Shoots like a dream. I know a lot of people are down on the CA guns, but I believe the older ones (60’s-70’s) are OK.
    · Walther P38 mis-match ac43. Captured by my father in WW II in the battle of the Bulge. Great condition and fun to shoot. (although jam/eject problems)
    · A newly purchached Taurus 22LR to keep my skills up.
    Lots to learn from the ‘experts’ here. I’m all ears!!
    Thanks
    Oh, and a vintage Volcanic 22 Starter pistol to scare the nieghboor's cat.

    Welcome Home Brother, from another Vietnam Vet...also...Welcome to Defensive Carry from here in South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome from another old fart RVN vet in 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.

    Rudyard Kipling
