Default Hello From Florida

Retired USAF, did just short of 23 years before being medically retired. Avid Military History nut, being a AF brat growing up in Europe and Japan gave me a chance to see a lot of historic sites first hand. My job in the AF was Aircrew Life Support which was redesignated as Aircrew Flight Equipment not long before I retired.

Just got into collecting Military Surplus weapons, and looking to get a Garand at some point. List of toys thus far is as follows.

Pistols:

1933 Tula/Nagant Model 1895 7.62x38R
197? JP Sauer & Sohn / Hawes Western Marshall 44 cal
1991 Ceská Zbrojovka / Browning CZ-83 380
1979 Armi San Marco Colt 1851 Navy 36 Cal
2013 Taurus PT 111 Millennium G2 9mm
2013 SCCY CPX-1 CB 9mm
2013 SCCY CPX-1 TT 9mm

I forgot to mention to you. Last week when I was shooting at the range in the Apalachicola Natl. Forest a guy from the Fl. Game and Fish Commission was taking measurements of the entire range, the benches and just about everything that had length to it. Said that a new range is going to be built just outside of Panama City. Be great for you and the locals over there. I've talked with quite a few Panama City people that use the Apalachicola range since it is the closest place for them to go shooting.

Yeap they broke ground in March 2014, was supposed to take 4 months to finish, but no word on when it will be completed as of yet. I keep looking for any news to see what the status is.

Looking forward to it opening so I can get the long guns out there and put some lead down range.
