    New member - New pistol

    Hi all - I joined on February 23 but this is my first post. 63 years young and retired as of 12/31/05. Live in Milwaukee WI. with my bride of 39 years. One son, married, and two grandkids, one boy 10 and one girl 8. I've also have a cottage on a lake up in the northern part of the state, Gods country, in the Nicolet National Forest. I love to hunt, fish and do some shooting, although not very good at it. I own several shotguns, 22 cal. and 30-30 rifles, a beautiful 8-3/8" Colt Python that I've got setup with a 2x scope that's taken many deer over the years, and a Military Hi Standard 22 pistol. In the past I've also had a FFL and bought and sold many new and used firearms, but gave that up back in the early 90's. I decided to finally post today because I just received my latest gun and it's another beauty, a Detonics USA CombatMaster in 45 auto. I'll be shooting it sometime next week and will do a range report with updates in the future.... Bob

    Welcome Bob! From N. Texas myself. I appreciate the information laden introduction too. A lot of folks here will be interested in your hunting, as well as your collection. We also have a lot of folks from Wisconsin to, so they'll be jumping in too, I'm sure.

    What Took You So Long?
    Glad that you've started posting.
    We are always interested in what our members have to say.
    An healthy infusion of "fresh stuff" is always welcome here.

    YES, Please do a range report and a personal evaluation of your DETONICS~U.S.A. Pistol. That would be great. I sure would be interested in reading that & others here also.

    In the meanwhile...any of your thoughts and opinions can be freely presented on any forum topic.
    Thanks for deciding to go "ACTIVE"

    Welcome. Based on that introduction, you sound like a pretty shady character...
    Actually, you sound like someone I would like to go fishing with.
    A warning- do not fall for the 1911 guys, and the auto-gizmo folks! Let's hear about the python!

    Welcome to the family. I use the word family intentionally. After a few days and a few posts it begins to feel like a family. We help each other. Sometimes we argue with each other - politely of course. But at the end of the day we continue to care for each other and be interested in each other. Join in anytime.

    Welcome from Indiana!

    I grew up in Wisconsin, both in LaCrosse and "up north" in Hayward, and went to school in Ripon.

    Great group of folks on here. I know we've all got our fingers crossed for WI to pass the CCW bill.
