    Welcome!

    How did you like Front Sight? I am trying to plan a trip there sometime next year. Any input is appreciated.

    Follow up to first post

    To All
    :oops:
    A close friend and fellow horseman/firearms associate has politely informed me that my "Assosciations'" list and bio on my first post was a "little over the top" as he put it.
    Therefore allow me to "edit". As dad said 'you never get a second chance to make a good first impression"
    I hope this update will mitigate any misgivings about first post.
    Now being retired (read: unemployed since March) and on a small fixed pension, some painful decisions have been made.
    I am an active member of the organazations listed however, will not be renewing several. Also, several monthly magazines will no longer magically appear in my mailbox :(
    I will maintain membership status with SAF, RKBA, NRA and be active with GOA, especially GCO/GPOD.
    Although am unhappy about recent NRA decisions and positions on legislation of a national nature, they are still the best funded, most powerful voice we have.
    I encourage each member to join, support and be active in at least one of the national organizations. We need to work as hard nationally as we do locally.

    Thanks to each of you who take a few moments to read this.

    Quote for today:

    I don't think it was over the top at all. It gave us a brief history of where you've come from in a neat little package. I approve :righton:
