Glad to be connected to others who enjoy firearms. I got my first firearm in 1956. A 410 GA single shot. I grew up in the Tulelake, California area were you hunted ducks, geese and pheasants. Since my first shotgun I've owned and fired several firearms. I'm retired Air Force and enjoyed a total of 33 years working for DOD. I have worked in and around law enforcement and always appreciated the hard workers and dedicated individuals in the different agencies. Thanks to those who make this site available to all.
