    I recall driving through snow in July crossing a pass years ago. Can’t remember the name. Hwy 40 I think. Well over 12000 feet. Good times.

    edit. Loveland Pass I think.

    Rabbit Ears Pass outside of Steamboat Springs if you were on Hwy 40. Nice Drive! :D

    Sorry about th date mind must be going also. I know the date fingers and brain not connected. I would like to thank all of you for the welcome. I have been shooting for some time 1953 is about my start, with a Disey pump BB gun. I quickly moved up to a 1911 found in my uncials garage unbeknown to him. Back then things were more user friendly. That old colt and I became the best of friends until the farmer down the road noticed me target practicing. My Italian grand mom (better known as the General) got the phone call. Sure glade it wasn't my dad. Purity much retired my exploits until Uncle Sam welcomed me 1963 from that point on its been nonstop.

    My big thing now is my John Ricco 1911 9x23 round. Have been working with it for the better part of 4 years. It's the most interesting and versatile pistol round I have found. Anyone have an a pinion regarding it.

    May I suggest a switch between 9X23 Largo and .38 Super?

    God Bless and best wishes!

    River Rat,
    Ha!, I'm also from upstate.

    Excellent call name. One of my old nicknames was "Roof Rat". Glad someone else is from around here, sort of.

    I have a 38 sup. It's a real nice pistol and is accurate. I'm really into this 9x23. Working with Ricco part time and being able to have had his input captivated me. This round is a real sleeper, very few know just what it can do. Easy to handle flat shooting and packs a great punch. I carried it in my final years of law enforcement after being department certified to carry it. I have shot 10% jel. Blocks it's an eye opener. My problem is finding new loads using newer types of powders. By the way my last duty posting was Colorado Springs awesome county loved it and the people.

    I cant say I ever remember Kansas being so mountainous! My trips through always seems so much more flat - like Illinois, except without the demons, villainy and evil.

    I often tell my wife that if she discovers I've ran away from home and decides to look for me, Colorado would be her best bet to start looking. But she would be wasting her time looking in the Denver area.;)

    Well, maybe not mountainous but we have quite a bit of rolling hills.

    We also have more than our share of demons, villainy and evil... luckily for the most part they confine themselves to KC, Wichita and Topeka.
