    First handgun I ever handled was in 1966 in Camp Pendleton, CA. Of course it was a Remington Rand 1911.

    As a young police officer in 1977, I carried a Colt 1911 stoked with CCI hollow points you could fit a pencil erasure into.

    I'll go back a bit further than that to 1969 when I qualified with the "sidearm" before going to Vietnam.
    "Guns are a lot like parachutes ~ If you need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again".

    The problems we face today are there because the people
    who work for a living are out numbered by the people that vote for a living

    "No man who refuses to bear arms can give sound reason why he should be allowed to live in a free country" Teddy Roosevelt

    Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
