It’s now almost nine years since I retired from active work in EMS. When I retired, I thought that the 35 years I spent in EMS with one agency had gone by quickly. It had, but it was nothing compared to the time since I took off my uniform for the last time, emptied my […]

A repost from last year. Or encore performance if you wish. With better pictures. Striker fired, polymer framed handguns are all the rage these days.
