    Hello folks:

    Brand new today! In 1982, I divested myself of all firearms. In
    2004, times had changed. My re-arming began with a 5" Kimber Pro Carry and an Arizona CCW permit. Things are becoming nuts in and around Tucson. Had a 50-mile running gun battle between opposing coyotes on I-10 last year; loser vehicle was punctured more than two-dozen times! Too many home invasions, drug hits - so on.
    Primary interest is home defense.
    Next purchase will be the appropriate shotgun. Just took delivery of an El Paso Saddlery "Spyder" shoulder rig. Still working myself up to fulltime carry in "Condition 1".
    Preview reveals just the kind of folks who share the same concerns. Look foward to informed exchange with you.

    Welcome .. and remember .. carrying a 1911 in condition one only LOOKS dangerous.

    Only when you point it at the BG and take the safety off does it really become so.
