names Greg Edwards, this is my second attempt so will see if this gets lost in cyberspace or works..

Retired from the Az Dept. of Corrections, (had keys) actually medicaly retired after 18 years as a Lieutenant. Strong intrest in politics, im a Libertarian, and life long intrest in firearms, my personal area of intrest is in military side arms, collect (dont sell) and in particul, victory models and 1911's.

Wife and i are residence of Peeples (correct spelling) Az. which is located at 5K ft in the weaver mts. of central Az.

were equadistance from prescott and wickenburg on hy 89. live at the base of the mountains with deer and javillina in abundance. and fortunate enough to have a shooting range (localy maintained)three miles away.

was in naval patrol squadron 26 from 67-71, awarded both the vietnam medals, and while we did lose two 12 man combat air crews durring operation market time, i personaly saw no action, but did get aquainted with san miguel beer.

Strong belief in our Lord and Savior, but not memeber of orginized religion. hope to get to know ya all..

Welcome Greg, you'll find a lot of geezers around here, or guys that can't remember stuff like me! Been to Prescott and I love it there, wish I could move there. USS Midway 77-79 and had my share of San Miguel (not bragging)

Welcome Greg

a couple of words of advice STAY AWAY from ebear not only is he a mexicant he likes the chicago bears.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Thanks for the warning

Got a kick out of the warning, Don't know you all yet, but noticed ebear, is an Il guy, not surprised hes a chi. fan. Got to warn ya i was raised in Il (Peoria) so while i prefer the Vikings, i understand the loyalty. On a serious note, noticed the 5 pic's, and i'm sure your a proud father. Good on ya. Wife and i have three daughters, and couldn't get them to join (still working on the youngest). I salute you and the wife.

I live about an hour and a half south of the Col's Gun Site which is just north of Prescott Az. Was a sad day for all when he passed.. You couldn't pick a better man to quote from. Thanks for the welcome brother.
