I'm just getting on board here at Glock Talk. I've been around shooting forums for about the past decade and around shooting and guns all my life. I've served as a high level firearms trainer for the Navy and FLEO in the past and I've been a competitive hand gunner for about 4 decades. I've recently retired and teach handgun classes classes at my little range in Southwest Missouri. I've enjoyed this forum and everyone seems to be friendly and in good spirits. I hope I can add something of substance once in a while particularly with regard to handgun marksmanship. I'm a Glock owner, I think the number is up to 7 now and of course own several other brands as well. I'm a Lifetime NRA member, GSSF, USPSA, IDPA and others shooting clubs. I'm a life long hand loader and have loaded custom ammo commercially for many cartridges. My main interests now are teaching the young folks to shoot and to promote our second amendment rights.
