Somewhat related note: I saw the military support section here and Id like to say how proud I am knowing that there are current and past servicemen here on GT. Im currently an MA3 with 5 years in, now working off my second command. I was stationed in Naples, Italy from '08-'12 and from then 'til now in Bangor, Washington (state). Looking forward to my new gun and e-family. Semper Fortis ladies and gents.
Just saw this. I was in Bremerton Naval Shipyard with the USS Enterprise back in the day. I fell in love with WA, and actually retired there in '92. (BM1, Aug. '71-Mar '92) A career in the "canoe club" isn't for everyone.....glad you made the right choice for you. I was an "old school" .45 guy for a long time. I'm a bit older, now, and MUCH wiser!. LOL. I chose the G23, 3rd Gen. It works for me. Is your wife into the shooting sports? I just got my wife a Kel-Tec PF9. I hold concealed carry classes, and we have many more ladies getting their CCW than ever before. Welcome to GT.
