Illinois

New member here, my name is Bill.
I'm 66 yrs old and still working.
I live in a small town 50 miles south of Springfield.

I've been reloading & casting off and on for 30 years or so.

I have a custom II, my first Kimber & my first 45acp.
I own 2 Glocks 9 & 40.
GSG 1911 .22
USFA 45 lc
RRA AR 6.8.( One of those evil black ones )
Savage hog hunter 308.

I like my Glocks, but I decided to get a 1911 GSG one day for plinking.
I liked the feel of the GSG 1911 and made the mistake of handling a Kimber Custom II one day, and it followed me home.
Now my Glocks are gathering dust.
Damn that thing is accurate.

Love the shooting sport and happy to see more women getting into it, even if they can out shoot me.

I try to make my own steel targets and target stands.

Excellent. Sounds like you've been bitten like the rest of us. My EDC is a Glock (for now) but they may spend more time in the safe when my Ultra arrives. I love my full size custom.

Well that was a dang good introduction if I do say so. Good to hear your Kimber is noticeably accurate. That's been my experience too. Now I'm saving up for another one and pretending I don't have an addiction problem. (If the NSA is reading this, I'm talking about a Kimber addiction, not crack. Oh, and get a f%*#ing life!) anyway, welcome from Kentucky neighbor.

Post a pic of that Kimber when you get a chance.

Not sure if that is good or bad. I hope to NOT be working when I'm 66. If I am, something went wrong......

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

I decided when I was young I'd probably work till the day I drop.
Doc says I'm healthy for my age and I like my job.
Luckily over the last 10 years I've had the job of driving a concrete mixer truck.
Always something different, good pay & insurance.

I just started drawing my full SS without retiring, I can make as much money as I want to according to SS, so I'll be putting more into the bank.
And the nice thing is I can buy more guns.
At least if I can talk my wife into letting me.
