PNW native, long-time shooter new to forum


Howdy and welcome aboard. There are a few threads about a Cascadia event and I would be interested to read your thoughts on the topic. Oh and 'gratz on the new Sig. :)
Welcome Aboard and good on ya for being a geologist. I majored in Geology but changed to a major could I graduate in 4 years. Chemistry, Physics and Calc. suck all at once. One of my favorite courses was Geology 210 Landforms, a ten day field trip Pullman to Death Valley and back.
It is a great forum with lots of SMEs. and some of us who just enjoy the shooting sports.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I should be more clear - I don't have my Sig yet - need to sell the others first. Geologist in oil industry = buy then sell; geologist in gov't research = sell then buy. ;)

BTW - I'm leaning toward a P229 enhanced elite. I carry a G43 but would like to learn to carry something larger. Plus, I work in a federal building and teach night classes on a university campus so can't carry at work - frustrating - which puts my carry gun in my pack left in my car (so size does't matter at that point).
