I am a retired (disabled) USAF Spec Ops (PJ and SP), now living in NC, originally from Ohio. I am looking to purchase a handgun, .45ACP for sure. Carried a Barretta 9mm on duty and before that I was a Sherriff's Deputy in Ohio and carried a .357 (many years ago). I shoot a Stag Arms AR-15 in 6.8mm SPC and enjoy reloading as well. Consider myself a life time student of ballistics, I seem to read more than I reload? I am involved with my local gun club, the CMP, and enjoy educating others (read: Liberals) about our 2nd Amendment Rights.
