It will be 5 yrs for me on the 8th. Great forum with fine people.
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.

Joined in 2009 but didn't have much to say until now. I have a two tone FN FNP-9, but it's sitting in my FFL's safe in his name due to a 23 year old protection order in New Jersey, the state where protection orders do not die a natural death. I'm working on getting it lifted so i can claim my baby back. For now, I'll do all I can to attempt to defeat the tsunami of new laws that is on the horizon.

Hi I'm, Rick77

Just joined today. Started target shooting in the late 70s and owned a number of different guns. Do to hard economic times for me, I had to sell my guns but plan on obtaining new ones. I have been a member of the NRA back in the 80s, but let my membership slip. Last week I rejoined the NRA to help fight the gun grabbers. I am also into ham radio, but I have always loved the shooting sports.

New from Orlando! Usually on XD talk but I keep finding myself coming to this forum. Into target shooting, self defense, and will be getting a reloading press within the next few months. I like talking with like minded individuals. Other things I'm into, craft beer, running, & classic rock. My favorite pistol is an XDM 5.25 9mm. I've got a 3.8 .45 for carry and have an old C75B :beer:

Hello All-
This forum was recommended to me by my girlfriend as a very good resource for responsible gun owners. I am a story board and comic book illustrator by trade, but am getting back into owning fire arms. Years ago, I owned a 22 rifle and a 357 revolver, which I no longer own. I am not a hunter, and guns for personal defense is a very important issue to me, but primarily I like to shoot for fun.

Thank you

not really new...

...Just using a new handle. Formerly MacGuyver77. I realized I misspelled the name some time a while back, and finally decided to create a new handle with the correct spelling.

hi all

Well I have been reading this forum for years and never joined. I grew up around fire arms in the communist state of massachussets. Hope this site will help me network with other ma gun owners. I love my country I love the constitution and hate our politicians. Thank for this great site!

Not completely new to THR. I was mentioned a couple of times in 2003 when I wrote a review of Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matt Bracken. I also bought a couple of cases and distributed them.

I retired last year and have turned more energy toward restoring the Constitution. I have taken over the Gun Watch Blog and have been having some success with original content articles. Dr. John Jay Ray is the originator of the blog, and he has volumes of great scholarly articles about the psychology of "liberals" or "leftists" linked to the site.

The most successful article so far as been my compilation of Mass Killings Stopped by Armend Citizens.

I just posted it on THR.


I have posted over 9,000 self defense and gun related articles on the freerepublic.com banglist.

This looks like a great site.

Hey guys-

Been reading the forum for a while now and figured I should probably stop being a spectator and get involved in the discussions.

I've been shooting most my life but just started to become more of a collector/enthusiast the last 5 or so years. Escaped from NJ about 7 years ago and now live in rural NE Ohio southwest of Cleveland.

Hope to learn and contribute a lot.

Hi...I'm a noob, glad to be here

Just started reading THR and find it has some really good info. I'm going to be a noob doing some reloading which is how I found the site. Been playing with firearms for near half a century but just recently got serious with it.

I joined a while ago, but haven't posted. I'm a NJ resident, so I'm used to prohibitive, poorly thought out gun policy. I find myself worried that lawful, responsible AR owners are becoming targets of reckless media intent on "selling newspapers" with little regard for victims of senseless violence or the constitution.

All the Best,

Hello all! New member here from Minnesota! I am just lurking around here to get a feel for how other people shoot, reload, use their firearms ect. I have shot since I was very young and own several firearms of different makes and models. I also love handloading and have done that for several years as well. I hope to meet some members from MN too!!! -Andy
