    Hello All

    Calico Jack from Wisconsin here, First time caller, long time listener, love the show. I live in the nort woods, and I regularly open carry, I also have non resident permits for several states. I have been an avid CCW advocate for about 12 years. Though I voted to support CCW in WI when I was 18, it was the first thing I voted for in my life.

    Been shooting since about age 10, joined the Navy in 1999 and started with explosives. That turned into a vast array of different jobs including small arms instructor, VBSS (Current Anti-Piracy operations), Force protection/anti-terrorism (Pre and Post 9/11), Harbor Patrol, and about a million other things involviong small arms. I am currently just teaching firearms to people and helping them with their gunsmithing questions.

    and thats who I am....... Tah Dah..............

    Welcome Bear, just a comment on Roy. If you remember in the TV shows Roy never killed anyone, just "winged them", not a good self defense practice but he was depicted as trying to bring them in not assassinate them. He really was a good shot too and used to entertain the cast and crew during breaks by shooting plates tossed into the air. Puts a whole new light on the casual way he held his wheel guns on screen.

    Welcome Bear, enjoy the good company. Grandma was a Sly. Stopped in to see cousin Roy in later years. Found his brother Jack at his cookhouse, they sat and chatted a spell. Roy was everything he portrayed.. Gene Autry and the Lone Ranger lived up to their images. Full 180 from today's Holyweed. BTW Red Ryder lives in NM and shows up at our gun shows. :>)

    According to Bill, he never carried (desired the NRA vote). Suzana Does Carry. The 'boutique' beer and wine left out a key element. No Applebee's or Chile's. Also a backroom deal was made to end Utah reciprocity, following Left coast Cal and Harry's Nev. Bill is a thug and gets elected by sharing among his cadre, the rewards of his thugery. His rabid supporters 'enforce' his desires. Violence (threatened then administered) is rumored as a powerful deterent to any competition for 'the Throne'. 'The Santa Fe Ring' has been well recognised since the days of Billy the Kid. BTK deserves his long overdue Pardon :>)

    A newbie from South Carolina here. I like to lurk awhile before I open my mouth so I've been reading some of the post. I have been very impressed with the topics and responses to them. I have just one concern. I know that this is an English only but I speak and right southern, is that OK?



    Welcome, speak all the southern you want,,

    Glock

    As far as I'm concerned the real problem with a Glock is that there's no way (that I know of) to outfit it with a custom grip. If anyone knows different I'd be very glad to hear from them.

    Hello there, NewB here from around Asheville, NC.

    I'm new to this site but not to handguns. I recently traded my 30something year old S&W Model 66 Combat Revolver in on a Glock 36 and love it. I tend to lurk much, post less... keeps me out of trouble. I'm looking forward to getting to know the folks on here and have been impressed with the friendly sharing of knowledge I've already found here.
