    Hello From CA

    Hi my name is Rhome and I reside in CA. ( I know poor me ) anyway I'm married and we have 4 grown children I was in the service in the early 70's and am a disabled Vet. as a result of my injuries I was forced to retire early. I was active in IPSC and IDPA but now to pass the time I make holsters or should I say attempt to make holsters. I am an avid 1911 man but living in the Bay Area a ccw is out of the question, we are planning to move to Madera Co. CA later this yr. where I can obtain a ccw. Well thats about it , I enjoy reading all the threads.
    Thanks,
    Rhome

    Welcome from another Californian. Thank you for your service to our country. I apreciate it. You have got to get out of that Bay Area. I am in the Central Valley and yes I do have a CCW.

    Rhome, welcome from North Texas.
    For those who understand, no explanation is necessary.

    Welcome, Rhome. I was just in CA a couple of weeks ago. I was stationed at Fort Ord 1971-74 and went back to visit the Monterey area for the first time since leaving in '74. What has happened to that great old post is enough to make a grown man cry.

    Glad to have you with us.
