    New Member, old guy

    Greetings all. I just wanted to make a short introduction. I am a retired Fed (Border Patrol, ICE SA), who is currently residing in Santa Teresa (really Sunland Park), New Mexico. I have been fooling around with guns for over 40 years. I even worked in gun shops for over 3 years when I left the active Navy.

    I can’t say I’m a particular collector, being married and raising a family, as in I had to sell something to get something. When I go back over some of my old records, I could cry over some of the things that I had and then sold or traded. I currently have two Colt auto pistols, a 1911 and 1903, and 5 revolvers. And like all gun junkies, I like most anything that you can put a cartridge in. I also reload for most of my indiscretions....

    So, glad to be here!

    Neat employment history, very nice. I'm new here too but not new to firearms or discussion forums. I haven't sold that many firearms but I do regret selling a couple and regret letting more get past me that I could have bought.

    I don't yet own a Colt! I have an Official Police coming my way that I am eager to try out. A 6 inch version made in 1959. I've been doing a lot of shooting at a local indoor range and I'm eager to try a smooth action with a 6 inch barrel, which is what this is.

    I can say though that I have "ridden a horse, carrying a Colt." That was on a date with this real cowgirl I met in college and the Colt was a Pony Pocketlite I used to carry but have since sold.

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
