    Hello, I'm Randy. I arrived at Altus, OK in July, 1980. I am a 61 Year Old Retired Master Sergeant who left the Air Force in 1990 with 23 years active duty. My wife, Linda, is also a Retired Master Sergeant, who left the Air Force in 1996, with 24 years of active duty. I am also a Life Member of the NRA, and the VFW.

    I have been restoring cars and motorcycles (of one type or another) for the past 30+ years. My favorites come from England (i.e. Triumph, Jaguar, etc.). I have also been a Competitive Pistol Shooter since 1972 and "specialize" in the Colt 45 1911 Style Pistol and Hammerli .22 Target Pistols. Pistol shooting is only a hobby, and paper is all I ever aim at any more.

    I am a regular poster on the CCF and a regular buyer on eBay, Auction Arms and Gun Broker.

    "A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, signed a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." -- Author Unknown

    Sorry, I sold my last 'Bike' about 5 years ago. At (now) age 61 I need to stay on 4 wheels ... ;-)

    I will post a few pix later on today. Thanx ...
