    I have been a member of this site since June 2001 when it was on EZBoard. I joined when there were only a couple of hundred members, maybe less. I was very active until the end of 2005 and let life take me in new directions. I was once a TFF moderator and when I saw that I could not be here as much as I should I asked to be removed from that duty. Since then I have read some here and there and posted maybe a dozen times a year.

    Anyway, since I don't know the majority of the members here I thought I would introduce myself.

    I live in NE Alabama in Paint Rock Valley about 7 miles from the TN line. I am 60 years old, married with 2 sons, and 3 grandchildren. I enjoy hunting, fishing, shooting, reloading, many forms of auto racing and horses. We have 9 horses including mostly gaited saddle horses of different breeds, including TN Walking Horses, Paso Finos, Racking Horses, and 1 lonely Quarter Horse.

    I am partial to 1911’s, but have a mixture of firearms including revolvers, rifles and shotguns. I enjoy shooting, but have have been a stranger to that lately. I enjoy reloading, but it has quite some time since I actually did it. I have Dillon, RCBS and Lee reloaders.

    I am 6 months from my planned retirement, but have been eligible for over 5 years.

    Glad to have ya here, I noticed you were around the other day. Partial to 1911s makes you alright in my book. I would say the membership numbers have changed just a little. ;)

    Yep, the membership, I think, was around 3000 in 2005.

    Thanks for the Welcome Back Country.

    bobski, I've got the Dalton get together on my calendar. We'll see. I used to go over and visit Sam and shoot some. Sam and his family used to return the favor.

    I was neither blue nor gold. I was on a fast attack. 365 days a year. No downtime.

    Beth, I will get some pictures up soon or you can go to my FB photos at!/media/albums/?id=100001608811680

    Welcome 'back'. I would probably start jonesin if I missed two days in a row.

    I've had several sites of my own and multiple boards. I wrote HTML for several years to create sites, but eventually wound up with an ezboard. Being able to write HTML was a big asset when I went with ez. 'Standard' isn't always what we wanted. :rolleyes:

    I've noticed you too. Hang in for awhile. :)
