    Hello from Rockland Ma

    I am a recent retiree, having spent many years as a chef and a call firefighter. I am a freelance photographer. I have only recently returned to shooting, many years away from it. Recently got my CC license, and am training with a nephew who is a certified trainer and a great resource. Expect most of my time to be taken up by family (wife, 4 kids and 8 Grandkids), photography, fishing , shooting and teaching some cooking classes.
    I joined this site after watching several of the videos.

    We have a lot in common. I love photography. I just got a Canon Mark III 5D & a few L series lenses. I also love to cook with the family. Enjoy the gun forum & channel. Tom

    Al, welcome to the forum from South Carolina. It looks like you have more in common with us here then you would have thought. I myself was a chef for quite a few years having my career cut short by a crippling motorcycle accident in 2011. Enjoy your time here and Im sure you will be able to help others as well as learn from weapons education. Peace, Gunnr

    Hello everyone, my name is Joseph Tessaro, I am new to this forum. I am a gun enthusiast, I love 1911's when it comes to a favorite platform for semi-auto pistols, but have to say I love almost everything that shoots a bullet.

    I have a few 1911's, I came here to post occasionally, and to read what people think on certain 1911's.

    My favorite 1911 that I own is an Ed Brown Special Forces that I had custom made with features I wanted. OD green frame, black slide, no markings on slide, match grade barrel cut flush to barrel bushing and crowned, slide stop recessed, non-ambi safety, 3lb my opinion the best 1911 one can purchase.

    Everyone has their own preferences, likes and dislikes, having owned a host of 1911's over time, I would highly recommend Ed Brown over all of the high end manufacturers out there.

    I am intrigued by CSC arms, a fairly new company to the table. I haven't had the opportunity to examine, hold, or shoot one, but from what I see they look like a player in the higher end market.

    I have owned 2 Springfields, 2 Wilsons, 3 Kimbers, 1 Smith & Wesson, and a Colt. Out of all the 1911's I have owned, I still own a Kimber Raptor II and my Ed Brown

    Welcome to the forum Joseph. I've read some posts about other custom manufactures of 1911's but a little out of my range or I'd be in divorce court. I love to shoot too, some vintage, revolvers and modern HK's. I think you'll find the forum interesting and maybe we'll all come away with some more knowledge
