    Hi folks, I'm Darrell. I've been shooting for about 42 years, but mostly shotguns and rifles.

    I'm ex Navy, ex Civilian Nuke, and doing what I love now, a truck driver. Mostly local asphalt/emulsion, but I spend most of the summer on overnight runs in the midwest. Currently doing a Twin Cities to Iowa run (filling sister company tanks with asphalt while it's cheap).

    Throughout my life I've shot a .32 Beretta (my first shoot ever, a Spanish Police WW2 sidearm), 8 mm Mauser 1918, Marlin .22 rifle, Mossberg and Remington shot guns, Ruger 22/45, Colt .45 ACP Double Eagle (my favorite), SIG .357, Taurus 692, SCCY CPX-2, Colt 1911, and in the Navy, Browning .50 cal swivel mount, 20 mm anti everything, grenade launcher, and I'm currently in the search for a CCW. Renting guns at ranges to see what I like and what feels good. The CPX-2 was supposed to be my CCW, but I'm dangerous and inconsistent with it. I think its the trigger weight so I'll be doing spring work on it. Meanwhile, the rentals I'm the best with are the H&K VP9, Walther PPQ, and Glock 17 and 48. Trying to analyze my range results.

    Oh, and I'm in love with Beretta Tomcats, mostly the 3032. I'm buying one next weekend. For some reason, it fascinates me and I love it. I'm not normally a fan of micro guns, but the Tomcat is a "must have" for me.

    Welcome. Although we like a multitude of firearms, we all have our favorites.
