Default hey from Mid Tennessee

just wanted to stop by and say howdy. have spent the last five years with Opryland Security in Nashville , recently retired . This was a very rewarding retirement Job occasionally working along side the FBI, State dept. , etc. Before that i had a small family business called sugarplum foods. A Viet Nam Era Vet. 15th AF , SAC , Combat Support.
i'm sure we are in the same boat these days trying to acquire ammo & firearms. Am currently trying to find a model 617 in 4". they are just not out there. would even consider letting my Colt Talo Night Defender in .45acp go.
Anyhow God Bless & all the best in 2021

Welcome to the S&W forums. Be warned you'll find out about guns you didn't even know you needed.

Since you have "touch" this site you may want to quarantine yourself., as you will surely get the "SMITH VIRUS " which has no know cure except an empty wallet?

Howdy from Colorado. My older son and a bunch of grandkids make their home a little south of you at Manchester, TN. Very pretty country, I like to visit during the spring and fall, but the summers are just too humid and hot for us old southern Colorado desert dwellers.

Sad to hear that. Im a prostate cancer survivor. Donít be discouraged if you get a cancer diagnosis. Unless itís very aggressive and has spread it can be treated easily and your chances of a long cancer free life are very high.

Iím closing on 6 years now and my psa is 0.02. I opted for brachytherapy and was very pleased. There are plenty of great options now.

Best of luck!

Welcome from Oregon. I have family about 12 miles north of Lewisburg.

Memphis, don't sweat it. I had my prostate removed a year ago this month, everything fine, PSA 0.01. You will be allright.
