New member here, my name is Bill.
I'm 66 yrs old and still working.:D
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 :D)
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. :D

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......:eek:

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. :D
At least if I can talk my wife into letting me.

Hey Ya'll!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!
:cool::cool::cool:

66 huh? Well, I guess I better show some respect for my elders........Sir! I'm 62 and will get my first Social Security check next month!! Retired as an Outside Plant Engineer for AT&T after 40 years. (Started as a Lineman with Southern Bell in 1973, hench the user name.)

Hope you enjoy that Custom II. I know what you mean about it following you home. Just last week I had a Kimber Pro Carry II jump out of the display case at the LGS, it grabbed hold of my leg and refused to let go! :eek: I was forced to bring it home!! :D:D:rolleyes: Send us a picture or two of your Kimber. We love pictures!!

BTW, I see you own an "evil black 6.8 AR".:eek::eek: How do you like the caliber? I have a DPMS Oracle and am considering getting a 6.8 upper for it.

Lineman73, yup I have one of those evil black rifles and I love it.
I had one some years ago in 5.56 and liked it, don't remember why I sold it.
I wanted a heavier caliber like the 308 this time around but the gun was too heavy.

I had read up on the 6.8 and decided to go that route 3 years ago and have yet to regret it.
As far as I'm concerned the only draw backs to the 6.8 is finding fired brass and a lack of loading data.

Welcome from southern Utah(-;
this is my AR. Her name is Shirley because she will shirley kick your a** if you walk in unannounced. And yes, I do have names for all my guns, my motorcycles, and even a few of my favorite knives. The best part about getting old is you start to stop caring if people think your crazy. Enjoy your Kimber! Hell, you might love it so much you'll want to name it.
