Armed and Dangerous in Iowa
I am a 21 year old college student in Iowa attempting to get my bachelor degree and become a law enforcement agent (federal hopefully). Im very libertarian, do not like the republican nor the democrat party. Strict believer in the constitution and of course the 2nd amendment.
My collection is small at the moment, it consists of only 2 weapons hoping to add 2 more at least by 2012. My first handgun was the Glock 17, obtained because I believe Glock is the best and most reliable handgun one can get especially for the price. My second gun is an HK USP Compact, also in 9mm. Obtained because I love HK and their designs, and I also believe HK to be of the highest quality gun one can buy with money. The HK USP Compact is my carry gun and I will be getting my carry permit soon. I also have some Smith and Wesson .22 revolvers but I keep them back home with the shotguns and rifles.
I would love to add to my collection a 1911 (Kimber, Colt, or Springfield), another HK (I'm eyeing the expensive MK23 but will probably get settle for the USP Tactical), maybe a Sig or Jericho (i like cowboy bebop)
I have tons of shooting experience despite living in a college town, I have shot everything from Smith and Wesson 4506 .45's to Magnum Research Desert Eagles in .44. 9mm is so far my favorite round to shoot, followed by .45s although I haven't acquired my own .45 because they are so damn expensive to shoot.
There you have it excited to be on the forums, heres my armory
Would love to see everybody on the forums collections as well, feel free to post them in this thread
Welcome from Central Iowa, which college town are you in? There's IDPA / USPSA over in Boone/Ames and lots of stuff over near Linn County/CR, if you can ever make it up to the Waterloo area you can shoot with me @ either Wolf Creeek IDPA or the Blackhawk Pistol Club (USPSA).
Here's two from my collection, if you like HKs and 1911s, you'll love these.
Welcome from the Lone Star State.

Theres some IDPA/ USPSA in West Liberty I think for now Im just trying to get to the range as much as I can, school (taking summer classes) and work get in the way of my beloved hobby.
I could easily go out to Cedar Rapids to do some shooting stuff, are there many places up ther for handgunners? My grandfather used to take me to Otter Creek to do skeet, dont think they have pistol stuff there tho.
your subject line "Armed and Dangerous in Iowa" reminds me of one of my favorite quotes .....
"Every tool is a weapon, IF you hold it right"
Is that the same DiFranco as the left wing folksinging green party chick? lol
