The Sailor Has Arrived!

As my screen name implies, I am a Vietnam vet and a military retiree with 22 years of active service; four years in the Navy, and eighteen in the Coast Guard. Dragonfly Lady and I will be celebrating 48 years of married life in October, precisely one year to the day from our first date (we wouldn't have waited that long, but 9.5 months of that were spent in the Nam).

My interests (obsessions?) are firearms, edged weapons, cooking, and camping, that last getting less attention as the birthdays accumulate! Collectively we own three handguns - an S&W .38, a Sig P250 in 9mm/.40, and a somewhat recently acquired Kimberling Micro 9. The rest of the arsenal consists of two 20 guage shotguns, a 12 guage, an AR in 5.56, a Henry AR-7, a Hipoint .40 carbine, and a moderate collection of sharp steel.

There will likely be more Kimbers in the future, as the Micro 9 has impressed me beyond words. [Those who know me will scoff at that last - I'm never out of words.] The little darlin' is so accurate and so manageable that it has become my EDC!

Enough for now. I'm glad I found a place where my bragging about the Micro 9 will be understood.
