I have been lurking for quite some time, finally decided to post up.

Been carrying for quite some time, just recently (within the last 6 months) decided to get legal with a GA license. My carry is an H&K USP compact 45 that I have had for years. Never a problem; dead-nutz reliable and accurate!

Really opted to post up now since I gave my bride a pistol for our anniversary. She has been shooting for quite some time but she is the type that finds what she wants, saves and then goes and gets it. A weapon was another story- she'd never buy something of her own.

After 10 years of marriage, I finally figured I had built enough trust to give her a gun! :tongue: She wanted something small enough for her to carry comfortably but still formidable, so I got her a new Taurus P709 Slim 9mm. We headed to the range and, after a little tweaking and a couple hundred rounds had it dialed in. Excellent weapon that is surprisingly comfortable and accurate! I have to say that the Taurus of today is not the same that you may have found 10 years ago.

I have been active-duty Navy for close to 20 years as a Submarine Radioman and (more recently) an LDO. I also had the privilege of serving outside of my expertise with the Marines of 3/7 and 2/1 when I deployed as an EWO last year. Quite the culture shock but they took great care of me, especially since I was the "old-guy" and one of the few Navy guys around (other than a Doc).

Anyway, glad to find this place and look forward to the conversation and learning a thing or two!
