The last piece I ever had was my .45 in Vietnam, (plus my M-16 of course), but that was about 44 years ago. I was an artillery officer and served with the 1/30 arty 1st Cav Division, '68, '69. I've forgotten everything I ever knew about firearms and handguns. I thought I'd browse the forum for awhile and ask a few questions. Much of the abbreviations and lingo escape me, so I may ask some fairly basic questions. I am looking to pick up a conceal carry weapon and take up shooting as a hobby.
