I grew up in Olympia and moved my family to Portland in 1996. Been doing computer related work for government, consulting, small business and corps since 1982. Grew up shooting and hunting with rifles and shotguns, but didn't get into handguns until late 1980s. Started reloading soon afterward to feed my Redhawk .44 mag and have kept expanding ever since. Now days I enjoy plinking with family and friends and lots of reloading. I now mostly shoot Glocks, revolvers, 1911, M1 Garand, and AR15.
