    Newbie from Oregon

    Been lurking here for a long time and started posting the last few weeks. Originally from South Jersey (Collingswood), joined the Air Force at 17, been to Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Morroco, Alaska and most of the lower 48. Most of my career was Law Enforcement and Criminal Investigations. Retired in 1988 as a SMSgt on disability after 15 1/2 years. Retired 2nd time from the State of Oregon in 2004 (again on disability)and continue to live there. Caught the 1911 habit about a year ago after I had played around with "plastic" pistols and have never looked back. Current inventory includes 3 S&W 1911s, Walther P99cAS, S&W 99, Springfield XD-40sc, Ruger P85, KelTec P3AT, Colt Combat Cobra, S&W Model 15, S&W Model 686, S&W Model 10 and a S&W Model 57 along with a few "long guns/shotguns". My wife is an avid shooter and also holds CWPs. We spend most of time fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon. Excellent forum!

    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
