New to the forum but not to Glocks and guns in general. I was raise with a loaded
shotgun, ,22 rifle or 30-30 behind every door. Spent tours in Nam, 68-69. Have the T-Shirt and
headwound scars to show for it, Couldn't buy a job when I got back from Nam, but the Metro
Police Dept of Washington DC took me in, gave me a job and a career. Been in Law
Enforcement of one kind or another ever since. Last job as a Deputy was as a Child Sex Abuse
Investigator. That wore me out and I left for Parole. Been a Parole Officer for the last 20 years.
I have a nice collection of guns of which 4 are Glocks. A model 31 and 33 in 357 SIG and a model
30 and 36 in .45 ACP. Have a couple Sigs in 9mm and several Smiths. Wife and I both have had
our CCW's since the early 90's. My wife is a Magistrate and Juvenile Probation Officer. Kinda runs
in the family. I ride a Harley Ultra Classic as a work bike and I have a Nomad I've made a trike out of that I use for the wife, dog and me on the weekends. Drive a Jeep when I can't ride.
Been married 42 years. I'm a hard core conservative and about as politically correct as a sharp
stick in the eye. Guess that's about it.
Stay safe,
Dano

Thanks. 3 Glock 30's? I just pickek up mine a couple weeks back. Really like it. I've purchased a Laserlyte Rear Sight laser. Gonna put it on
this weekend and sight it in if it don't rain. Got a CrossBreed holster coming and I'll be ready to carry it. Love my 36 but this 30SF surpasses
it.

That's me, cycle freak. Been a bike in my garage or at least in the drive since I was 16. Only time I didn't have one was in Nam.
Been a Senior Member of Glock Talk fo about 10 years and still haunt it daily, but always like to explore new places and ideas.

Thanks for the kind words Hank, but "hero", naw, I just did what I thought was right. Survived TET 68 and 69. 13.5 months of going from being
scare half to death to being so busy I forgot to be scared. Almost like being Bi-Polar :) Again, I appreciate the thanks but as Alvin York said; Shucks,
weren't nothing special.
Stay safe, stay aware,
Dano

Dano,
I cannot imagine what you went through. I have friends that were there and they have since passed away, but for 1. You served and came home alive, therefore you ARE a HERO in my country. I am a US Army vet but never saw combat and glad I did not. You sir did and I salute you for that. Any grunt that saw combat is a HERO imho. Also what you had to contend with when you got home I am sorry. Glad you found a home and job that it sounds like you did very well at. Enjoy the wind in your hair and have fun with the trike. My dad had a bike and my mom rode her own trike, but when he died she sold both.
Take care and hold the loved ones close

I won't argue with you :) It was rougher coming home than living minute by minute in the bush.
Like a lot of Nam Vets, we were spit on for so long, we don't know how to accept genuine gratitude.
Means more coming from a fellow Vet though so thank you and thank you for serving too.
