    Greetings from Central Florida

    Live in a rural county in Florida. Retired from the Florida Forest Service after 37 years. My father introduced me to rifles at a very early age and I have been hunting and shooting most of my life. Always had a single action Ruger around and still carry one. For my retirement my wife purchased a Colt 1911 SXE for me in .45 ACP. Hasn't arrived as yet but I am looking forward to learning a new gun. I am looking at information on that type of pistol so that I can learn all I can before I get it. Look forward to participating.

    Cat, thanks for the welcome. I am familure with the area you speak of. I didn't do much recreation work, I was in fire control. That is a nice area and property along the boundaries of the Ocala National Forest is popular.
