    So, I went into a gun shop near my house today and I got to meet Leroy Thompson. For those that don't know, he writes articles and reviews for gun magazines like Combat Handguns and Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement. He even autographed a few of his books that I had. He's a very nice gentleman.

    He seems like a guy I'd like to meet-he talks the talk and walks the walk. Not a phoney.

    I used to read his articles a lot but I don't read many gun rags anymore. He did help pique my interest in the Walther P5 that I eventually got. That is cool that he is a decent guy.

    I wonder how many rounds he has through his G-17. Or was it a G-19?

    Leroy has got to be OLD by now. I agree, first class gentleman.

    He's really good friends with the shop owner. He was giving an autographed copy of his new Counterterrorism book to one of the guys that works there.
