Very interested to read what everyone has to say. From the first look this is a very interesting board. 

As for me and my background; I live near Dallas, Texas, I've worked in law enforcement for the past 20 years and I teach at a local police academy.

I also taught in the Academy at the Southeast Institute of Criminal Justice in Florida in the late 80's early 90's.  Scary some the kids they were hiring back then.  Bet it causes you nightmares today.  David the Moderator here also teaches in one which is why he disappears for long periods.  He get so scared seeing the new kids coming in as LEO's and packs up and bugs out to his cave in Idaho for months at a time and then comes home.

Question?  Do the Texas boy in South Texas call you guys in North Texans "Yankee's" [smile]

Welcome.  We are a small group of most Old Farts who love our Second Amendment rights, our Country and our guns.   We treat each other well and you will not see any of that silly mess that goes on in other forums.   Jump in any time with comments as you will never be put down or disrespected here.  We all learn from each other.

Be warned though.  A few guys here have that "Can't have enough guns" disorder and reading their post and seeing the pictures can cause the disorder to infect you.  If it does be prepared to by more gun safes.  I have three and just figured out where I can stack some small ones for pistols on top and bolt them to the bottom ones.   So, guess more 1911's, old model S&W revolvers are going to find new homes this year.

Teaching firearms to millennials has been.....interesting? Yeah, I'll go with interesting. They surprise me with a lack of hands on knowledge but amaze me at how quickly they pick up things after being shown them a time or two. As for the overall quality of recruits I think we have gone to far into the social worker mindset and to far away from the street cop mindset. 

As for your Yankee question; yes they do call us that but spell it Yanqui 😉 

Thank you for the welcome. I look forward to seeing what everyone has to say especially anything about S&W revolvers. My favorites are my model 29-3 which was a gift from my wife and model 58 which she didn't divorce me for buying. I married well and acknowledge it. I enjoy shooting both and have even let a few of the millennials give them a try. Sadly the most common response I get is "Gee, that trigger is a lot different than a Glock."

Love the Model 58's! Had a nice one produced in the mid 70's, but a cousin has it now☹️

Since I am left-handed, I gravitated toward the Mossberg 500s, and have two very nice ones made in the 80s.
