Hi all,

I'm 61 years old and I have experienced firearms use since I was 6 years old.

I served in the U. S. Army for seven years (1965-1972) with tours in Germany and Vietnam. I became a Police Officer in 1973 and retired as a police chief after 22 years of service.

I've taught firearms at a community college along with other law enforcement courses and I coordinated firearms courses for the FBI for seven years.

Thanks for letting me join this group.

Army

Welcome to our group. We have similar backgrounds. I spent 24 yrs in the Army with 16 of those years as a Military Policeman. Finally my ears got so bad that I couldn't hold up my end and I was concerned that I might get one of my men hurt by not hearing a radio message well enough. I too taught firearms Safety since 1970 and just retired from that this year. I taught at the Colorado Highway Patrol Police Academy and for the DOW in Missouri, Colorado and Alaska. Total students taught....roughly 14,000. I just recently graduated from the Colorado Auxillary Police Corps Academy and now will be back in uniform when we have incidents or visits from high muckymucks that require a lot of security and crowd control. I write stories about my life and that of my family. The Army has it's share of stories in my portfolio too. I wish you lived in Colorado cause I could use a shooting buddy that I could trust not to shoot me. LOL (not because of my stories or jokes)

Wlcome- grab a beer, pull up a chair to the fire, natives are mostly harmless- except THAT one over in the corner- we are trying to get a confirmation on species on that one. Folks from a lot of places, young, old, young at heart, second childhood, etc. But everyone is a gun enthusiast- and if anyone takes themselves too seriously, we usually lure their ego down a dark alley and ship it to some cold spot North of Goose Bay. :p
