Greetings all!

I'm a military retiree with a life long interest in firearms and other assorted items of destruction.
I have listened to my kid brother, Greg Az, ramble about this site for years and finally decided to join you all.

We live in Herford, very definately a rural location, which is just a few miles from Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and delving into some interesting topics.

Hi all, excuse me for the delay. I was always the slow learner in the family. But as Greg has said, he has been bugging me for ages to join you all. Seeing as how I am a bachelor for the next month or so, I have time to branch out a bit on the internet.

LOL Greg and I have way too many war stories to tell, but not to worry, we don't start telling them till we get several sheets in the wind. And dang it, the last time we tried that it took us three days to recover. Oh well, the miracle of youth!

This is a comment to Greasypaws first comment to my Hello note, so hope it is readable by all?
If not, I shall just chalk it up to another Aw Shit on my list.

Glad to have you aboard.
I tease Greg about being an old fart
but truth is I'm older the he is.
I'll be 63 on 7 July so I guess
I'm in the old fart group.
I tell these youngans I've done everything
they dream about and damn proud to be
old having lost all the friends we've lost.

guys.. I've been begging my brother to join us for so long i thought for sure the old fart had "oldsheimers"

You all have been real patient while I've rambled on about bro.. older brother..mentor.. all that sorta thing.. We have a hundred stories to share with ya all about times in Manila, (bro still blames me for the "red light district" stops...lol..

I think I've mentioned to you all that Gary retired as a Maj (mustang to his credit) and then did another 20 DOD..

Just got back from the PO.. and going to enjoy a cold one with Gloria, and unwind from my hard day of doing absolutely nothing..

Brother.. try to kick back and get a feel of our little "club".. clicking on any avatar will get you a profile of the member, and a good idea of whats what.. Thanks for joining us.. I don't want to overload ya right now.. Honestly hoping you get half the enjoyment out of this place as i have.

To get on line you might try Chicken censored (and tail)... Its a good place to start.. The rest of the format is straight fwd.. posts, comments to same, about a million pics and vids in archive, and for real.. Don't ask how its happened, but about 20-30 absolute stand up guys, all alpha males like you and I.. and all really great men.. welcome my brother..

LOL Posted wrong the first time, my first attempt is up under greasypaws.

Well, I had a chance to scan thru Greg's pictures and all the comments. That rascal has been hiding his leather vest from me! Needless to say, I am mightily impressed with the expertise you guys have and I can already see I will need to fight off the urge to make frequent runs up to the gun shop. Might even have to break out my reloading gear.

Thanks for all the welcomes and I hope to stop by daily.

Hi bub.. evening gents.. Shak, you as well, and let me say.. Thanks to all my pards for welcoming my brother to our little corner of the net.. Getting a tear in my eyes.. Thanks buddies.. Now.. moving on to important stuff..Wow..The world is strange tonight..

Got on earlier, and i was thinking it would be a normal day till i opened the "machete boy" thing. What a pile o crap that puppies going to be.. Don't know if you guys had a chance to see Obarrys comments on cinco de may. (which is clearly the best Corona holiday of the year)

I'm thinking if we get "brown v white" action in the next couple of weeks, his comments are as responsible as any others..His statement (sorry i dont have a link, but you guys are quicker than i so unneeded) about judging by skin color were inflammatory, and candidly just not in line with the Gov's statements about what was not going to be tolerated.. Or for that matter the law itself..

Then we have the big Movie, which .. Lord love a duck, is this sucker stupid, but of course shows a white guy as a villain.. "scar boy" (got enough myself to say that) with a coat full of machetes.. Father Javier doing his shootie act.. The Nun giving a revolver a BJ..

My only comment is thank goodness that Lynsey Lowan gal is in it, or i might not take it seriously... Wheres plan 9 from outer space when you need a good movie.. OH I FORGOT!!

It did have Steven Shitall in it.. so im sure it's going to be a winner.. Food time, see ya all later..

Welcome to the site. We're all glad to have you. Your brother is a great guy, and since he speaks so well of you, you must be too.
Well, I said that Greg's a great guy, and he is, but sometimes he shits a little too close to the house (sorry - if you weren't raised in the country, you won't understand that).

Where's the video? You can do Stayin Alive, just keep somebody else handy to spit when you run out.
Schuyler would really enjoy it, right?

Welcome Gary

I'm still in Ft Huachuca. I'm heading to Gitmo in August, though and then it's on to Missouri. I lived in Palominas/Hereford for about a year, Lane Ranch Road. It's at the far end of King Ranch Road. I just moved on post, though. I do most of my shooting at the SV range or that old landfill down there toward the south end of Hereford Rd. Mybe we can get together for some shooting one of these days. I figure a brother of Greg's who can actually spell ought to be alright.
