    Hello everyone, I'll make this short. I'm a husband, father, Marine, LEO, and a Defensive Tactics Instructor. I'm a current owner of the SR1911 and as of yesterday, the AR556. It looks like there's a lot of valuable information here, and I hope to help contribute what I can.

    Welcome to Ruger Talk!
    First, I would like to thank you for your service to our country and to its people. I know all LEO'S are going through a rough time right now and I think you'll find just about every member here (including me!) supports you and law enforcement in general, all the way.
    Thank you.


    Anyway,
    Thanks for the introduction. Lots of knowledgeable people here who can help you with most any problem you may have. Enjoy your time here!

    Hi Jewell, welcome. I was in Iowa on a service job, probably at a bearing plant, sometime in the 70s. I recall going for a drive in the countryside, to see the scenery. Got on a country road between cornfields. Tallest corn I had ever seen. And that was all there was to see - corn stalks. hah.

    Ha! That's Iowa for you. Really though, there are some beautiful spots. You just have to know where to look.

    Welcome to RT from North Central Iowa. I've got a suspicion that's where you're from too. Jump on in and enjoy. This is a good forum and if you have questions ask away. We have lots of answers. Sometimes even correct answers!:D

    Glad you joined our forum. I lived in Northwest Iowa for over 25 years. Fort Dodge most of the time but I used to travel
    all over the state so there's not many towns I haven't been in. Great forum here so sit back and enjoy!!

    So you suspect North Central Iowa Spikedriver? You'd be correct. Do we know each other?

    Hi Jewell. Welcome to RT. I'm back in Mississippi but lived in the Waterloo area for about three years at one time in my past. I lived on the corner of a corn field myself and yes some beautiful country up there but for a good ole southern boy those winters are horrible.

    I doubt we know each other but if my guess about your screen name is right, you're less than 20 miles away from me, for now. But I'm moving down to the Boone area next month.

    Well, I'm not in Jewell, but North Central Iowa was a good guess.

    Good to be here. I always like to think us Iowans are halfway decent folks.
