Lurker now member

Hello from the Bluegrass State. I am a sport shooter and have joined after being refered here on many searches. Too much good info not to join.

I like semi autos best. Not afraid of polymer. Glock, Kel-Tec. Tried and true Ruger,S&W,Colt,Remington. I love some for pure function, some for the form and function like the 1911. I love reading about and seeing unusual firearms.

Looking forward to joining some of the great discussions here. Thanks for the great info I've found here for years.

Keep in mind that this board can be addicting...
If guns are too readily-accessible in my state for the safety of yours, why doesn't my state have your state's crime issues? It's your people, people. Fix them instead of attacking ours.

Stumbled in here 6 yrs ago, haven't missed a day since.

Read all the rules, and stickies and you will be fine. A fine bunch of people to hang out with, and a great place to contribute, teach and learn.
Hit the report button if you find a problem.

I only have so many heartbeats left. I am not wasting them on things that are not fun.

RipCMoredog is a tribute to my late husband

I am a 47 yr old female that has almost always had a gun as an adult. Never anything special just something for protection if needed. Have a gun charge in the state of TX for carrying a handgun without a license and that was a plea. Only charge ever and it was 3 years ago. Like to collect research and sell old guns. Like to learn about all guns I find it very interesting.

New guy here. I keep finding great information on here so I figured I should join.

I'm an equal opportunity gun enthusiast but the older historical stuff and anything hunting related are what seem to maintain my interest.

Hey all, Tom here signing in from Canada. Contrary to popular belief shooting sports have a healthy and enthusiastic population here in the great white north!, (although we are quite stifled by archaic laws made by liberal idiots).
I don't discriminate, I enjoy all things that go bang!

Hi guys,

Name's Tom. Complete noob, but doing my best to learn what I can as quick as I can. Been lurking here and on a few other boards (TFL, Shotgun World, etc). I live in a gun unfriendly state, but my CCL is pending (should be another week or two). I'm currently researching my first gun (or two) purchase. Most likely a 9MM semi-auto and a shotgun. I'm looking for HD/SD and probably some kind of sport shooting (trap, skeet etc).

Looking forward to learning from all of you.

I'm a 40 year old male that, up until recently, had zero exposure to the gun world. Never shot a gun and to be honest, I was scared to be around them-City Life that grew up with hippie parents will do that I guess.

My 14 year old son seems to have a fascination with weaponry so I decided 6 months ago to address my fears so that I can make sure my son is learning proper safety techniques as well as finding a new way of bonding with my boy who's now a teenager and growing up before my eyes.

After passing the CHSC, I went out to a range and I'm happy to say that we're both hooked.

I'm hoping to get valuable information on safe practices as well as suggestions on where my son and I can continue improving our target skills in Southern California

need info regarding barrell length

hey everybody,,, nice to be here with you...just reading some 5 yr old threads online regarding gun stuff made me feel I was back at the rifle club I used to belong to,,,good feeling...so I just signed up a few minutes ago...
I am looking hard at some bolt guns thinking I want one... One used 40XBR I found in .308 with tactical stock really appeals to me but then I found out it has a 16" barrel with a 1 in 9 twist!!!! why on earth would anyone want to do that to a long range weapon???
In reading the older threads I think to reach 1,000 yds it needs to be at least 20" ....is this correct???
