Wanted to stop in and say hi! Just joined this morning, looking around and learning about WaGuns.

I was career military, retired, now own a farm in Thurston County.

I collect boom sticks and sharp pointed objects for fun :)

Thanks for having me!

Annie

Welcome to the site and thanks for your service as well. You'll find there are lots of us vets on here.

You left out one option: the 1911 I built from a kit (currently my favorite).

Good icebreaker poll! I voted "Colt" not because I know jack about 1911s, really, but because my favorite one that I own is my old 1918 Colt.

Welcome to WaGuns, and thank you for your service!

Welcome to the site! I couldn't take your poll though, since that's like asking who's your favorite child? My family includes Guncrafter, Springfield, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, and Nighthawk.

When its time to go in:
That place of steel and stone. I pray that you will keep me safe, so I will not walk alone. Help me to do my duty, please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places and slamming steel door sounds. God, keep my fellow Officers well and free from harm. Let them know I'll be there too, whenever there's alarm.
Above all when I walk my beat, no matter where I roam. Let me go back whence I came, to family and home
