Although I've followed this forum for quite some time, I'venever really taken the time to become as active in it as I should be. I'm originally from the San Joaquin Valley in California; so not the liberal part of the State. We moved to Arizona about two years ago to become reacquainted with freedom after retiring from law enforcement 5 years prior. 1911's have always been a very big passion of mine, and I've even built a few. Misplaced most of my 'smithing tools, so the 1911 purchases in the last few years have been mostly Springfields (but I like Colt's, too). Hope I can contribute something worthwhile from time to time.
Thanks for the welcome, Blackbeard.

Welcome Snowman45 and congratulations on making it to a well deserved retirement and the re-enjoyment of the weapons you may not have had time (or freedom) for in the past.

Glad you joined us @Snowman45. I lived in the SJ valley also for several years. Did some time w/SJSO Reserves in the 80's. Had the chance to go sworn but didn't(divorce, move, etc.). Now I'm glad I stayed with my current job. The SJ valley is now just an extension of the SF Bay area. Overcrowded, traffic nightmare, crime rampant, Libs coming in from the B/A. I moved back closer to work so s not to deal with it. It used to be country. No more. Your in one of the 2 places I'm going to. AZ or TX. Retire & done. Don't let AZ turn Blue.
