Hi, I'm a retired physicist...

from many Mega Corp./government/consulting jobs. Most of the work was fascinating. But the time came.

Not sure I'm retired into the best environment for giving up an income but if not now, when. So I'm here.
Thanks

Yeah, being retired gives "without peer" a new meaning.

Beretta Storm subcompact .40 S&W? Sweet weapon. I'm curious though, why did you think I would know? I only guessed because I was talking about it with an ex-cop friend recently who is friendly with a firearms rep.
