Hello To All

So there I was...stopped packing for my move from Spokane to Arizona to check my mail and surf abit. Like a fool I typed 'girls' and 'guns'-two of my favorite subjects-into google and vola...joined ANOTHER gun blog! Hello to all. Great site you've got here, and I've been to a few. Just a bit about me...retired senior NCO-25+ years US Army, mostly grunt but did a tour *gasp* as a recruiter. Other fav subjects are beer, girls, rum, girls, vodka, guns (thought I was going to say girls didn't ya!), booze and girls! Livin large, lovin life and stocking up on ammo! Got to keep my babies-EAA 10mm, SIG P220, and Taurus PT1911-fed, and boy that 10mm is expensive. Enough of me for now, don't wanna bore ya. Leaving Friday and will be on the road for a few weeks-visiting gun folk in Montana and Wyoming on the way, but WILL be back. Saty safe and stay ARMED!!

old ranger..

welcome.. you sound like half of us.. bunch of over the hill.. (some heading that way faster than others) gun love'n, drink love'n usta have a "set" sorts...

We actually do have a good mix of current and retired mil, and LE.. Obvioiusly as gun nuts we tend to be a bit on the Alpha side, but are comfortable defering to the youngsters who in turn are great about asking our openions.. bottom line is it works.. and most of us have a taste for a cold one as well so thinking your going to fit right in..

click on any of us to get a feel of what were about.. when you can try to post some pics of what you shoot, etc.. We actaully are a pretty tight group. the only thing we have some real strong feelings about is BS.. We all might imbellish a story a tad, but honestly if one of the regulars says it its "bankable..

So pull up a stool and jump in...

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Thanks

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. Will post some pics when I get to my sisters-she has a digital camera, . Hey Greg Az, you know the difference between a fairy tale and a war story? A fairy tale starts out 'once upon a time...' and a war story starts out either 'there I was...' or 'this ain't no sh*t...', Gotta pack some more, back later.
