No! I am not retiring from the forum.I wished I did live close to you to be able to learn from you, but I was more referring to as to sharing your information and experience with firearms in the written manner. I hope you are not "retiring" from the forum as well. I have read several of your posts and find them very informative.
I am willing to answer any questions that I can and provide insight into how to properly care for our historic past.
I am sadly not going to take on any public or private projects due to political pressure here in Illinois. It is simply a Communist wasteland!
