Welcome to the party, herohog and thanks for the tip on replacement sights in the KelTec P11 thread.  The GL project gun is in the shop right now though  :(


Thanks to the Snake Eyes welcome wagon too  ;D

Thanks!

A little about me...

I am a 57 year old disabled vet with severe joint and back issues. Been on the Internet since it was ARPANET. I have raced motorcycles since I was 9, raced stock cars since 15, SCCA since my 20s, a certified Master Mechanic, been a 50kw FM Classic Rock DJ, played drums in Funk/Blues Classic Rock bands all across Louisiana, Arkansas and VA, been a computer geek since the IBM PC hit the streets and retired as a Sr. Programmer/Analyst specialized in integrating business databases with the Internet and and I have been a  gun owner/shooter since I was in single digits.

These days I live in a recliner on the Internet or out in my wheelchair listening to bands or shooting when I can. I am very active in the support of the Constitution and particularly the Second Amendment.

During all that I had a side job as a DJ at LA105 out of Monroe LA as "Dr Speed" on the air 7 days a week doing the late night/early AM shows during the week and doing a live request show weekends along with running the special canned weekend shows.

When not doing that, I was a Blues/Funk/Classic Rock drummer with several bands here in Louisiana, then in North-West Arkansas and finally in the Charlottesville, VA areas before my body took that from me as well. I was the house drummer for several Blues Jams in addition to being a gigging drummer. I actually turned down multiple chances to tour with several known musicians because I couldn't leave my day job and the security it brought which was a very hard, but right, decision.

Here are a few images to give ya a taste of my past:


My 1st leave in the Navy


My old Suzuki GS850G


I was kinda into bikes...


My 1st time driving Dirt Modifides at 15 years of age.


My SCCA Solo II Mustang II Cobra Turbo


Drumming for the Bootsey Daniels Band in VA


In my DJ days

Looks like you're into some cool stuff, HH. What kind of bike is the one you're standing next to?  Looks like the liter suzuki my dad had when I was little.  I've had a couple Jap 2 and 4cyl bikes myself, but never any suzukis.

It was a GS850G. Great bike! I was into their three cylinder 2-strokes for years. Had 3 GT380's (2 were parts bikes)



and a GT750J "Water Buffalo".


(stock images, not my actual bikes although they were exactly like the ones shown above)
