New member from Oregon!

I recently had the opportunity to purchase a Kimber Solo Carry DC at an amazing price due to a few cosmetic problems. It didn't like the 124's my local range had for sale, so I'm waiting on an order of American Eagle 147 flat nosed FMJ. Hopefully the problems will go away.

I've been target shooting from the age of 8 when my grandfather taught me. I've never been hunting, I only threaten paper. I have a Concealed Carry license, but hardly ever actually carry.

I have a large number of .22 pistols (I LOVE shooting the .22) and a few other guns sitting snugly in my safe. The Boberg and Mateba are a passion of mine, and I have been privileged pick up several examples of each of each over the years at prices I could afford. I love little mouse guns and not a big fan of the 1911's. I prefer revolvers to semis, which isn't so say I don't any tactical semis, or that I don't have a big boy or two in the collection for variety.

When I decide to to a .22 shoot-a-paloza I have a hard time not talking ten different pistols with me to the range! I try and limit it to three and boy do I have a hard time sometimes.
