New Guy

Hi All, new to this forum. I live in Kodiak, Alaska and have for many, many years. I'm a retired LEO - 25 years service. Life long fascination with firearms. Always admired the 1911, but never carried one professionally - I grew up in the plastic gun era, not that there's anything wrong with that. However, since retiring I've transitioned to the 1911 platform. My first 1911 was a Kimber, Tactical Custom II. My Second was Kimber was a Kimber Super Carry Pro. My third 1911 is a Wilson Combat Tactical Pro, still in production. I truly appreciate the knowledge and wisdom that is freely shared on this site.

I always wanted to live in Alaska, but Montana is cold enough. Plus, way out in the middle of nowhere prices of $4 for a can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle soup is too much.
