    Good evening! Having been a long-time shooter, I'm not new to guns, but can still learn something from just about anyone.

    Avid participant of all things the Great Outdoors has to offer, I'm still able to try about anything that catches my interest. Not much into competition, but it's still great fun to shoot a round of trap, or just go plinkin' out back with friends and family.

    My bride of 16 years and my nine-year-old son both love handgunning, so that's a pretty regular past-time for me.

    Shot my first Glock (G17) back in '81, when the part-time PD I was with issued them. Hated the darn things! Been full-time since '83, got tired of hearing everyone rave about Glock for all these years, so I went and bought a Gen4 G23 back in November 2011. Now, about 2,500 rounds later, I have to admit that they're pretty darned reliable. Far from pretty, mine is awfully accurate, too. I guess if it was all walnut and steel, it wouldn't be a Glock.

    Any of you folks near Ulster County, New York?
