Hi, I’m Henry and I enjoy handguns and the shooting sports. My first experience with guns was with the Boys Club in North West Washington D.C. (Now that dates me!). Most of my experience had been with rifles. My practice place was the “Carnaval Shooting Gallery” in the Glen Echo Amusement Park. I learned the basic skills needed to be safe and accurate. Later, I jointed a range in Poolesville Maryland and really began practice with Firearms at greater distance.
It was not until I entered Federal Employment, where I was trained in Handguns, there usage and versatility, I began to understand handguns better. When I was deployed into a hostile environment overseas, I realized I had to learn far more about guns than just point and shoot. I hand to learn field repair and maintenance of long-guns and handguns, in a dry dusty environment and also rain forest. I learned as much as I could and I practiced as much as I could. It was then I became a pistol instructor.
I grew an interest in gun repair and learned via the internet and videos the basics of the work. It was not until I was able to intern/apprentice with a very skilled Gunsmith in Virginia I learn the real hands-on application of maintenance and repair of guns. I became very interested in the use of handguns over rifles quickly. One summer, I came to Wyoming and became fully hooked on handguns for far more than just personal protection.
I finally moved to the Newcastle Area in Wyoming a few years ago, where I could pursue my firearms and handgun interest and escape the changing tide of East Coast life. I have enjoyed participation In the Handgun Hunters Competition. Here, I found a place to interact, talk and learn more about the extended uses of handguns for competition, fun and hunting.
The philanthropic and benevolent work of this group in support of Disabled Veterans, Community Youth and other causes has made them a valuable asset, promoting safe handgun usage, and to show handguns are versatile, displaying these firearms in a positive light.
I look forward to working with the Board of Directors and working with them to continue the good works of this group! Be Safe!!
I’m from Central Texas and grew up Hunting & Fishing.
I got into Handgun Hunting when I shot my first XP in 1985!
Like most I started small game hunting and running trap lines with a .22
I like the challenge of Handgun Hunting!
There’s something to be said for getting in the woods and doing it different!
See Y’all on the range!
