    Newbie From Minnesnowta

    Well, the ice is coming off the lakes and my fingers are thawed enough to type, so here I am...

    I learned about this forum from a couple of other Beretta freaks, and am part of the "Beretta Invasion" cited by another new member. My Italian toy is a Beretta 92G-SD, complete with Langdon Tactical Technology (LTT) competition trigger job. I use it for IDPA shooting until I get an OWB holster and a heavier hammer spring that will allow me to make it one of my winter carry selections.

    My steady companion is a Glock 26 with TruGlo TFO (Tritium/Fiber Optic) sights on it. That, along with the S&W 642 that my wife carries, tends to comfort me when we are out-and-about together!

    My interests lean more toward carry-related issues and hardware suitable for carry, so I think I'll enjoy this group. From what I see with a quick look around it should be a nice place to hang out.

    Thanks for the hospitality so far...I'm glad to be here.

    Careful srfl, JimmyC is not addicted to Berettas.
    He's addicted to IDPA and happens to shoot it WITH a Beretta!

    Good to see you here Jimmy.
