    Not-so-newbie from Central MO

    I've been here and gone and back. Can't really say when I originally signed on, but I just realized I never intro'd myself. So I figger'd I'd give it a go.

    Born and raised in mid-Missouri (no, I'm not going to argue over whether it's "Missouree" or "Missourah", if it's that important to you, God bless ya). Did a couple of stints in south-central Texas (San Antonio/Austin area). Really enjoy both places, but MO is home.

    Did a brief stint in the USAF, as a Law Enforcement Specialist. Got out and went a different way with my life. Hadn't really touched a gun in over 20 years when a friend loaned me an M1 Garand for deer hunting (something I'd NEVER done). That was 4 years ago.

    Now, my wife and I both have CCW endorsement, are armed nearly all of the time and are teaching our kids the value and joy of responsible gun ownership.

    Welcome from 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.

    Thanks all!

    Rick, I've got a buddy who retired from over 22 years EOD about 5 years ago.

    He had a Rottie named MOAB...

    Tiwee - keep the faith, brother. I'm with you the "explaining the obvious to the oblivious" front.
