    Greetings

    65 YO retiree here. I have been out of IT for about a year, after a 44 year stint in that field.

    Though I have experience with rifles and shotguns during my youth, I had not handled many hand guns.

    With the onset of Covid-19, Wifey suggested that I should acquire my CC license/permit. After a good bit a research I decided that I would be best served with a Glock 19. Ended up with a Glock 23 Gen 4 after the local fun shop informed that 9mm was hard to acquire at the time.

    Even now, as supplies appear to be improving, I do not regret that decision. Love that gun.

    Anyway, looking forward to spending time here the learn all that I can about these finely crafted tools

    Regards

    D
