Hi folks, My name is Tony. I am a physicist, reloader and gun enthusiast from the Great Northwest. I've been following this forum for a while. Sigs, Walthers, 1911s, and Makarovs have always been my passions. Today I picked up my first Caracal C , in 9x19mm, and immediately took it to the range, gave it a quick lube and promptly shot 100 rounds through it, without a malfunction. I am very pleased, although I wish could have held out a few months for the arrival of the 40S&W or 357Sig instead of the 9mm. Alas. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know her better, and to interacting with members of this forum. Happy St Patrick's Day to you all!
