I'm an avid handloader who enjoys my .22 centerfire varmint rifles, among others. The rifle & pistol ranges at Tri-County Gun Club are my test laboratories for load development. My military background: U.S. Marine Corps, served with 1st MarDiv ground forces in South Viet Nam in 1966-67. 4 years active, 6 years reserve. Professional background: Technical writer & photographer, recently retired and adapting to a different economy of time. In summer and on vacations, I enjoy scuba diving, and I am a PADI-certified Rescue Diver. In winter, I set my scuba gear aside. I enjoy tinkering with my rifles and sidearms. I'm always looking for a varminting opportunity and location.
