Hello from WA, north of Spokane

My interest in Glocks started when I was a young buck in the Marines, I purchased a Model 19 from the Camp Pendleton gun shop in Feb '92 (serial # YW 7XX), It served me well from '92-'10 (had to draw-down on a Perp one time, he's lucky to be alive as I didn't fire, he cowered and ran away), must have fired 2,000 rounds through it in that time with maybe 2 or 3 stovepipes, no FTFs, FTLs (superb weapon), while in the Marines I served 7 months at Jubail Naval Air Field, Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield/Storm as an Air Traffic Controller with MATCS-38, Detachment Charlie, we controlled over 169,000 air operations at that air field during that time period.

Two years ago I traded it in on a new Glock 19 (serial # PLB 8XX, blue label, Night Sights, test fired 25 June 2010) I love this one as well, I upgraded it with a LWD threaded barrel and have a Osprey Can in the works. I carry it concealed where ever I go (had always carried the previous G-19) and I know that if I have to draw-down again, it will not let me down.

I transferred to the Air Force Reserves after the Marines in '92 and retired in 2010 at McChord AFB, during that time I was a C-141 Comm/Nav Tech (3.5 years) then trained to be a C-141 Loadmaster, retrained to the C-17 6 years and 2,000 flight hours later, flew a lot of combat missions in Bosnia then Operation Enduring Freedom (logged 350 combat sorties in all those years, I even logged a combat sortie in CONUS (very few have ever done that) on 911 flew Bush's Limos/Secret Service Agents back to D.C. from Sarasota, FL that day).

My friend and I are interested in Coyote hunting, If anyone in the area is also . . . Lets chat.

Well, that's Me in a Nutshell, it's Great to be a member here with like-minded individuals.

Thanks for your time and don't hesitate to drop me a line (PM), Take Care All!!

Steve
