Another Annapolis Newbie

Hello to all. Iím the new kid on the block, a lifelong shooter who, for whatever indefensible reason, has never found it necessary to join with large firearms organizations, other than NRA. Now, however, with our 2nd Amendment rights being threatened from all directions, Iíve decided my best option is to affiliate with like minded persons and hopefully learn and contribute to developing the best path forward.

For background, Iím a former Navy fighter geek, followed by 29 years of cockpit service with TWA and then KLM. I didnít learn much about firearms in the Navy, other than wing and nose mounted cannon, but initial training in gun safety began with my dadís gift of a .22 rifle for my 12th birthday. Can you imagine a 12 yr old kid riding his bike, with rifle in sling over his shoulder, through the streets of Santa Barbara, CA, on his way to shoot gophers in Goleta, the present site of UCSB? Itís true. Try that one today. Handcuffs?

I hope to be able to both learn from and contribute to Maryland Shooters Forum. Certainly learning will take precedence in the early days but hopefully I can soon contribute some useful thoughts as we mutually fight off the forces who would disarm us entirely.

In closing, I would like to thank both Mr. Ed and Clandestine for introducing me to this forum. Itís my sincere pleasure to be affiliated with all of you.

Welcome aboard! Someone will come along pretty soon with links to all the good organizations that fight for our 2A rights here in MD, as well as nationally. Pretty sure you already belong to most of them, though.

Don't be bashful, and welcome to the forum!
