Hello one and all. New to this forum and just wanted to say hello and give you a quick bio on me. Retired Navy Chief Petty Officer. Living and working in Bay City Texas. Have two sons and a wonderful wife. Oldest son graduated from SFA and moved back to NC. Younger son graduates in December and plans to return to NC also. Wife and I plan to stay put for some time but I'm sure you understand that we will (when I retire again) follow the boys. New to handguns, just bought a XDm 9mm. Love it and shooting (only 4 weeks now). Did shoot trap prior to the USN but serving in the Navy didn't leave much in disposable income so... Now that sone 2 is almost done with school, well the budget is growing so.... Anyway hope to be an active participant here. Always willing to learn and love meeting up with others that share the same interest.
