I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a former Marine who severed some 40+ years ago, I currently live in South Florida. My only experience with weapons comes from my Marine Corps training.
My fellow Marines will know we trained and qualified on the M-14 in boot camp, it was not until we graduated boot camp and moved from Parris Island to Camp Lejeune that we handled the M-16.
This was during the height of the Vietnam Nam War so they moved you on, I would summarize, rather quickly. During my tour of duty over seas, by circumstance, I was required to qualify with a side arm, which of course was the Colt M1911 45.
Due to the changing climate in this country, I submitted my application for a concealed weapons permit, I fully expect will be carrying in the not to distant future.
I have a number of questions about weapons and training that I will present to the fine folks in the appropriate forum(s).
I'm as interested in being as responsible a concealed carry citizen as I was an open carry Marine.

Thankyou for your service to the rest of us.
As an enlightened state, there are lots of clubs and shooting groups here to help with with a gentle learning curve.
Detail needs and expectations and you'll get lotsa good advice.
Sig is a quality platform, but there's nothing like a well broken-in 1911...so you may have an extended time looking for comparable replacements.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.
P.S. At least I do not consider myself an ex-marine!
