Hello from the wet side of Washington. Was pointed here by a friend in another forum. I've been a gun nut since before I could legally buy a pistol or get my CPL - and that was more than 36 years ago. Same birthday as the guy who wrote the Second Amendment (and did a better job originally than the version the Committee "improved"). I'm a 1911 fan, but like anything interesting. Like most, I work too many hours, don't have enough hours to pursue hobbies. But it's a good life. I believe it will get tougher very soon, but we'll face up to the challenge. I hope I can both learn here, and share information with others. Like the guys on The Box O' Truth always say, "Shooting stuff is fun."
