#14989 Work? At my age, work is a hazard. it interferes with my recreation time.
Working on my pistols, and shooting them. I am a sucker for 1911s.

I may have to save the RGRacing story - It's not that long but It never changes -

I competed in off road motorcycle racing for 30 years - Mainly Enduros on Penton/KTM's starting in 1978 on a 175cc Penton Jackpiner. Finally hung up the boots at 50 ish. My son was a Honda fan and I road a few of his hand me downs during the era, he gets all the new stuff and I suffer and old bikes.

MSRacing was a brand name based on Malcom Smith - a legend in our industry - My Initials are "RG" so there you have it - I made that Logo way back in an old Graphic program and used to print it on Contact Paper way back before anyone was purchasing high end custom graphics on their "Stuff" - I was a pioneer LOL

#15012 Retired from the Navy in 1983 with 21 years service, then went back to work for them
as a contractor with BAE Systems for another 23 year. Retired for the second go around
in 2010 ...

Enjoy fishing, riding my MC, reloading, hunting, paper punching . Shot IHMSA for about
10 years back in the 80's. Eyes went south, on the road a lot with work so gave it up ..
Loved the 200m open sight shooting ... Used a T/C Contender 10" in 7mmTCU, a Remington
XP-100 in 7mmBR and 7mm-08 (Deer pistol too) and 10" Dan Wesson .44 for pistol competition.
Good old days ...

Mgammon,
Thank you for your service. I retired from the Navy in November 1974, 19 years and 10 Months.
RMC. I shoot 9MM for fun and economy, occasionally Super .38, Yugo Tokarevs and
Many, Many RIA pistols, my carry being my 1911TCM/9mm double stack. Backup often my RIA Baby Rock.
