    Hi all,

    I thought I'd introduce myself.

    I am from Tucson, Arizona where I was a police officer for over 23 years.

    Now, I am retired and going to law school full time, and teaching defensive pistol, carbine, and shotgun.

    I was with gangs-narcotics, and SWAT before my old knees blew out and had to be replaced. So...no longer a high-speed-low-drag operator type. Now I am a medium-speed-low-cholesterol-former-operator :wavey:

    I still shoot USPSA, IDPA, and 3 Gun regularly.

    I like to fly (small aircraft~single engine), hunt, fish, shoot, and BBQ.

    Good to be here.

    Can I offer anyone a beer?

    Welcome. I spent most of my life in Phx. Good luck on all you are doing. I hope you make good progress on all of them except one which didn't sound too good to me but that is way off topic.

    Well...I figure a lawyer with 23 years experience as a solidly PRO 2A cop can't be all bad.

    That sounds good! Should be a dynamite combo!

    Who could be a better friend to the legal gun guy than a prosecutor who understands the real world, and who doesn't believe in BS prosecutions of good people who are forced to defend themselves?
