Just checked my profile and it says I have been lurking here since September 2013 so I suppose I should do this shit.
Glad to see that this forum has come back to a little bit of life, it's been going down hill since the +2 saga.
Started shooting IPSC in 1992, become an RO a few years later and a CRO a few years after that. My first Nationals was 1995 and I have been to all but 2 or 3 since.
First handgun was a CZ85, back when most you mob hadn't even heard of CZ. It had a single port comp made from the barrel of a M98 Mauser by a previous owner.
When the barrel cracked forward of the locking lug I paid way too much for a Tanfog P19 Silver Team Open Gun complete with PDP3.
Shooting 9mm major at about 182PF I went through a couple of barrels over a couple of years, rounding the locking lugs from the quick unlocking.
Got a custom built Para in 38 Super and shot that for over 15 years with the only replacement part needed was one mag release.
The slide eventually cracked through the ejection port so I ordered a custom SVI.
I took delivery of that about 6 months before the World Shoot in Florida. (Who the fuck designs a range to face into the rising sun?)
Once the Shadow 2 Optics Ready guns arrive I plan on doing a bit of Production Optics cause that looks like a real hider Division at the moment.
I have been a PM (Paper Master) but have slid back to A in Open, B in Standard and Production.
No, I don't have any photo's of my (ex) wife's tits and believe me not even GuruOfGuns would want to see them if I did.
