    Hey guys just checking in.. A really kind member here sent a PM thinking I had croaked or something..lol..so I figured I’d drop by for an update.

    Things are fine..as well as this crapshow of 2020 can be I guess. My family is safe and healthy and we are just trudging through this mess of COVID/tyranny/deception.

    Traded last weekend for my 2nd Sig 1911, a Tac Ops..so thats my new baby I’m getting to know...those 1911s are like rabbits..I started with one back in 2017 and now they have reproduced in my safe and I’m up to 5!

    My son is graduating this year from the University with a Engineering degree and also getting married soon..so my pocket book is getting hit like a plate glass window in downtown Minneapolis..

    Speaking or riots... I bought Level 3 plus body armor and a tactical plate carrier...because.. well, after what I’ve seen in Austin TX 200 miles from me and in some other towns ..I figure if I’m in those towns ...and get stuck in a bad spot, I’ll have my guns and some form of protection, if worse comes to worse... I will do everything to avoid getting into a mess, but by gosh, if I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place, I want a fighting chance.

    I’ve also never been so happy to have the reloading set up and supplies I have. I even went shooting today!

    Anyways.. howdy to all you guys..PM me anytime...keep your powder dry and watch your top knot fellas!
    Trump 2020!!

    Glad to hear from you, db. It's great to know that you're still among the upright, and doing well in these weird times. Tell your son that the Engineering degree is a good thing, in my experience, but the married thing... not so much. The father of my bride asked my mom, the night before the wedding, to talk me out of it because I deserved better. He was right, and I still do.

    Good to hear from You DB...such a newsy and cheerful sounding message...not knowing
    you, but still reading your words, reminded me of Gomer Pyle delivering one of his
    greetings and salutations after a long absence...The troops are all pleased sounding that
    you checked in....Damn, here in the Phoenix area, the setting of record temps is almost
    a daily event....the pool water is as comparable as a warm bathtub... cannot stay in the
    sun very long or redness appears like the blush of a fresh-kissed school boy. The scope
    and effects of the virus here in the valley is very profound and all encompassing..Our
    governor met with President Trump yesterday and explained the dire circumstances of
    his quarantine orders locally and statewide... Guv Doug Ducey was an ice cream vendor
    before becoming 'Head Honcho' here in Arizona...go figure!!!! Welcome Back, Sir..Chief

    Good to see you back. I retired 3/31/2020 and we were in full lockdown. Had to sit at home for 3 months. My gun club opened late last month and at least I can go there now.

    Hey a voice from the past!;) Great to hear from you. Looking at your shooting table it looks like you are well protected from a radical liberal attack.:)
