Hello all:

i am a 49 year old native from our great state of Texas with 3 kids, well not really kids, 26m, 25f and 15m. i served in the U.S.Army for 7 years, acquired the rank of Sgt then got out. personal issues. i have been shooting since i was 6 years old with my first shot being from my Koreran War vet dad's colt 38 Super. kicked the hell outta my little hands but since then i loved the smell of burnt gunpowder and gun oil. i have not stopped since then and have acquired a small collection of firearms which include several rifles and handguns. i have also dabbled in black powder having build 4 guns from kits. its not as nasty or dirty as some people make it out to be. lately i have gotten into the habit of buying bolt guns which are becoming a fave to shoot. i came upon this site while researching a scope for my newest acquisition, a Savage Axis 223. i hope to make more friends in our great state that i may contact, speak to or interact with. thank you.

i know its been a while but i've been busy. after 23.5 years as a police officer and homicide detective in my home town, i retired. it was a great run but it was time to rest. i enjoyed serving my fellow citizens and putting criminals where they belong.
