New to the forum. Born in Vincennes, IN and grew up in Olney Il. Graduated from Eastern IL U.('87 BA History and '89 MS Education/Counseling) and moved to Arizona June 1989. Spent SU '87 interning at U. Tennessee Knoxville - and have been a huge U of Tennessee Football fan ever since.

(Father was career Law enforcement officer and eventually retired as City of Olney Police Chief.)

Have had the same Ruger 10/22 since 1983(?). More of a gun enthusiast who enjoys shooting recreationally. (Also have a S&W model 66-2 - bought new; and a S&W model 5904 - bought used in 1991??).

Yesterday, I ordered a Ruger SP101 - .357 w/ 3.06 in. barrel. I've wanted one of these since they were introduced in 1989. I finally had some "disposable" income allowing me to order one. Also ordered a Hogue grip to replace the factory version and a Fobus holster. Looking forward to getting and shooting this new toy.

Take care -
Doug

Your path is not so different from mine.

I grew up in central Illinois (used to race my BMX bike at the track in Olney), graduated from EIU in 93-BA History, '94 - MA AM History and then moved to AZ. Currently in Chandler.

It is such a small world and this forum brings out the best in people so welcome and see you around.
