I'm one of the old guys. When I was born, Truman was President.

As a kid, I grew up with guns but never had much use for them myself. Then about three years ago, something in my brain clicked on and I decided to take a pistol class.

Since then I have fired a minimum of 10,000 rounds per year (and have the empty wallet to prove it).

My main carry gun is a S&W640 snubbie loaded with Speer Gold Dot JHP 135gr 38special +p. Sometimes I carry my Kimber Custom TLE II loaded with Speer Gold Dot 230Gr JHP. On rare occasion, I will carry my S&W620.

I compete frequently in USPSA competitions, go to the range weekly and get additional training as often as the finance minister (she who must be obeyed) will let me.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment as originally intended by our Founding Fathers.

I use the same user name on every forum I frequent because I lack imagination. Heck, at my age I'm happy to remember my real name.

I consider myself an activist, so I open carry frequently just to let the people know that good guys DO carry guns, but mostly I carry concealed.

Finally, (as you have already noted, perhaps) I suffer from oral diariha.:redface:

My 'Higher Headquarters' and I got married in 1974 and after 32 years she still refers to our relationship as 'our 5 wonderful years of marriage' :confused:

I look forward to being a regular here.:banana:
