New to the site. Been on some other forums for years but just haven't seen the traffic lately. I have handloaded for years and done a bit of amateur gunsmithing. Just looking for a more rounded education.

Greetings All

My name is Chuck and I live in the guns friendly state of Indiana, though currently I am deployed to the Middle East with my national guard unit. I have near 20yrs in the military now, both guard and active duty time. As far as guns go I am mostly a hunter: deer, turkey, pheasent (I grew up in Iowa) etc... But I also love the classics guns: M1 Garand, Mosin Nagants etc.... I enjoy the posts on THR and look forward to some great virtual conversations.

I'm glad I found this site. I'm a Cowboy Action shooter but love to shoot the older hardware. I'll be asking about loads and information on older revolvers. My other passion is long range Black Powder Cartridge (BPCR) shooting and I can assist to some degree from my experience. Looking forward to reading a lot of posts!

I spent a few years in the Army Infantry and returned home to Montana to go to college (graduating in May, woohoo!). I don't get out to shoot as much as I should, although with the lack of ammo I kind of have an excuse, now

Good evening folks from Arkansas; new to the Forum and shoot as much as possible. I am the proud owner of my fathers 1953 High Standard .22 target pistol and 2 RIA 1911s. I hope to get into reloading sometime this summer once the panic buying ends.

I had a name up here a long time ago when I first got into guns (2007) but after a while stopped posting and until now have just been reading and soaking up knowledge. This is the forum I have always used bc I trust it more than anything else and I appreciate the way you guys operate. I have learned so much over the years through thehighroad and plan to continue that, just with more posting!

I'll start off by saying "hi" and "Thank you!" as a lurker who has learned a ton since I started reading here about two years ago. I've enjoyed shooting for close to 30 years but have only become serious about it in the last year or so, after realizing how much better I could get with some regular, well thought out practice.

My current arms are: Beretta 92FS, Ruger Mark III, Marlin 60, PTR 91, and a Mossberg 930. I love'em all...

To all that see this, I present greetings!

Hi all ... My name is Harry and I am a newly registered member here even though I have followed this forum as a silent lurker since late 2003. During that time I have learned quite a bit about a lot of things that are gun-related. Actually, many of my firearm acquisitions since then have been made based on opinions and recommendations made to others on this forum. With all the heightened anti-gun noise being made throughout the country recently, I thought it time to come out of the shadow and, when appropriate, add my two cents to the discussion.

I'm retired Army (20 years) and am currently employed by DoD for over 20 years as a Systems Engineer. I have over 40+ years experience with firearms and enjoy putting lead down range whenever the opportunity arises. I am, as probably most here are, a member of the NRA, support the NRA-ILA, and on several occasions have introduced the uninitiated to our enjoyable pastime.

I'm not much of a talker so in closing, we're clear on the right? Clear on the left? The range is hot! (I'm a bit center right).

Hello. Im way down south in Superbowl/Mardi Gras town...I hunt with bolt actions mainly and have a thing about shooting accurately in those so spend a lot of time shooting different loads, tweaking triggers, etc. Otherwise am pretty basic, although i have an urge to build a 223 with select components, which is how i found my way to this site. Ill start a thread shortly on that topic and am sure you gurus can guide me in the right direction

I'm John And not really new (Dec last year) never gave info. I live in the largest town in Texas (No not Houston), am retired and grew up shooting and hunting-in S. Louisiana. Owning many rifles and pistols. Was an avid shooter with the La. State Police in the Late 60's and early 70's. Bought the first S&W Model 29 in 69. Haven't shot since. Got mt and the wife twin Sig P250's and a '58 Duramatic (in pristine shape) several months ago. We both got our CCL and plan to defend ourselves and anyone else who needs it. I refuse to bow down to an illegal alien in the White House, or any anti-constitutional liberal.

I've been lurking about for years and now have decided to join. I am recently retired from a career in Military Aviation. They forced me to retire due to Lou Gherigs Disease. I enjoy target shooting and formerly enjoyed hunting. Shooting to me is a family sport as well as a civic duty. I believe that it is a Fathers responsibility to teach his family to be proficeint in self defense as well as being able to hunt. I collect and where necessary restore mostly rifles. I love seeing the excitement of a new shooter when they "bang the gong" the first time. I am interested in learning more about different things as discussed here. My greatest pet peeve in the shooting world is the "Comic Book Store Guy" (like on the Simpsons) you know the type overweight, ponytail and goatee, expert at all things military and tactical even though they could never served a day. I hope to learn a lot and to pass on what I've learned.

Hello everyone! Long time fan, first time poster, but I figured that with the political climate we find ourselves in today, it's good to keep expanding my list of friends with similar interests!

I've browsed this forum before in search of advice from everything to ammunition reviews and recommendations, to DIY gunsmithing, and I've always been happy with the thoughtful and knowledgeable information that you all put forth. I hope to be able to contribute my own knowledge and experience, though I doubt it even comes close to rivaling many of the members within the community. Regardless, I wanted to introduce myself, as well as say a general thank you to all of you that post here!
