    Hello...

    I used to shoot when I was young and when I did SP duty in the USN. Decades ago.
    I'm 52 next month, I was chef,then worked as a butcher for alomost 10 yrs..
    Two,years ago,I did another change of career and now I cut hair. Men's and women's.

    I recently decided to get back into shooting and bought a Glock 42 for CC- which I'm still in process.
    Tomorrow I pick up my first revolver,a Ruger GP100 6" barrel. I shot one a couple of months ago and fell in love with it.
    Can't wait to pick it up!!

    I have been lurking here for a couple weeks and have picked up a lot already.
    Looking forward to more.

    Welcome to the forum.
    You realize you are probably destined to buying a few more guns. There ain't no such thing as that was the last gun you will buy. Well till the money runs out or the other half says you have enough guns and you like her cooking.

    That's what I'm worried about!!! It's already happening.
    I play guitar too.. we call it GAS- Gear Aquisition Syndrome

    After all I did buy a killer range pack that can fit three handguns. I should use it to its full potential, or it would be a waste of money,right???

    Welcome to the forum. I take it with your user name, you are an Allman Brothers Band aficionado? If so, this makes two of us!

    I cut hair in Wakefield if you ever need a cut. Women's hair too.

    I'll PM you soon. Ever go to Pine Ridge or Midstate Gun?
