First Post

Hello everyone,
This is my first post here. I've been reading some of the threads and I'm impressed with all the knowledgeable people here.
Been around guns, hunting and shooting for a long, long time and like what I see here.
I'm a retired Lineman so I guess that I'm not a "young whipper-snapper" anymore.
Also, I'm a life member in the NRA.

Glad to meet you guys (and gals)

Welcome aboard, looks like you're 'hooked'. :rolleyes:

Hello Hook!

Fancy meeting you here! I figured using a familiar screenname should start the rocks flying.:p

Looks like a nice place. I think I like it already!

Hey Antlurz,

Glad you made it over here. Feels a little more like home now.:D :D

Hello, Hook and Antlurz!! (sounds like a movie title!)
Welcome to the group!! Lotsa of cool stuff, info, people and opinions here!! Gun heaven for the addict!

Wow. I'm not sure how this place escaped my radar for so long! I'm betting I spend some time here. That might upset a few and make others happy. :rolleyes:

BTW.. it COULD make a good movie!

Couldn't it Hook? (private joke)

Will have to snoop around some and see what all is shakin' on the site. Looks like grand central station at first glance. I'd imagine there are some park benches around here somewhere to land on and watch whatever is going by go by..

Sounds like a couple of new retirees to me! Great! You will find a lot of good stuff and good people here. Good shooting;)

Sadly, I've been "retired" for several years but I figured it was time to look around and find some new scenery. Kind of an interesting site ya'll have got here. ;)

Havin' fun snooping around and looking in the medicine cabinet. I believe that's what people are expected to do when they show up the first time.

Welcome Aboard Hook and Antlurz

Drag up a chair, and join in the "hot topic" threads
of the day; and as the day draws to a close, we
try to learn something from each other. Hope you
folks enjoy it here as much as I do!

Best Wishes,
Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

Welcome to THR, guys! :)

Antlurz, look around all you want. Check out all the rooms and all the goodies .... but, whatever you do, don't open the door marked "Beware - Do Not Open". If you do ... well, I just don't want to even think about what might happen.

Welcome! The more the merrier, and you're right--there's something for everyone. Lots of fine folks here who don't necessarily reach the same conclusion at the same time, but we get by with a lotta help from our friends.

I have learned this forum can be addictive, so consider yourself warned. Glad to have you on board.

Howdy, folks. :cool:

Pull up a chair and set a spell.

Thanks everyone for the great welcome.

It was really appreciated.

:D :D

Welcome, oldies - My youngest introduced me to handguns at he age of 84, I think; that was almost 3 years back... I've been broke ever since, but loving it. Tomorrow or day after I'm getting a little gun, a Kahr MK9 Elite 2003 w/night sights, I hope I'm able to rack the slide - I might have to do it with my "strong" arm. Will let you all know how it plays out. Regards. The Oldfella
