Welcome to everyone.

Please take the time to look around and read what's available. The THR Library is a marvelous resource all by itself.

If you search for the answer to a question you'll find plenty of knowledgeable folks around to help.

Remember that THR is intended to be a place where civil discussions of firearms issues takes place. Our mission is to serve as a clear counter to the characterization by the antis that RKBA advocates are a bunch of juvenile vulgar posturing thugs that can't be trusted with firearms.

Hello,
I live in Spokane, WA. I love anything that goes bang. Im into it all but military surplus holds a big place in my heart. I love to hunt big game, upland, ducks, and turkey. Im currently a student at ICN, Washington State U., I can wait until Dec. when I graduate...so I can "invest" my first pay check into some new boom sticks.

Hi, I'm a new member. My name is Wendy, from Georgia. I started shooting just about a year ago when someone introduced me to the "Women on Target" program. I have to say I love my hand guns, all semi-automatics. I have 4 M&P 9mm's (My favorites). I shoot a lot of matches, IDPA as well as IPSC and try to shoot at least 4 matches a month. About 4 months ago I started to get into long guns, I now have 3, a berretta cx4 storm, styer aug (replica) and my most favorite is my AR. Participated in my first 2 gun shoot a month ago and came in right in the middle of the pack, to my surprize! I am a training fanatic! So far in a year's time I've trained with Emanual Bragg in Frostproof an IPSC Grand Master, Tom Givens, Matt Burkett, Chuck Hemlke Tom Stiedham and last but not least With James Yeagar at Tacticle Response: Fighting pistol, advanced fighting pistol, fighting rifle, advanced fighting rifle and force on force.

Finally time to sit and talk...

I'm a retired computer tech, parts manager, aircraft electrician and amateur radio operator. I live in the mountains, where I hike when I can, drive my ATV when I can't hike. My carry is a S&W 329PD with 500Mag grips for recoil protection (no it doesn't make it fun, but it doesn't hurt as much). I also have a nice 6" S&W 66, Springfield P9LSP in .40S&W, Browning Buckmark, Taurus 4" .357 ported, and a few shotguns, .22's and such. I have military service under my belt and am familiar with Colorado's CCW statutes. I also believe that a gun free zone is an invitation for trouble. Glad to meet everyone.

Hello to all

I have been gleening info from this forum for some time. Every time I google a topic there are several links to this forum, and the info is excellent. I don't think I will have much to share compared to the many outstanding members so willing to share their knowledge and experience, and to you I give thanks.

I am a mechanical engineer living in Utah. My current hunting activities are primarily dedicated to teaching my Grandkids to hunt deer/elk and small game. I am lucky this year in that I will get to hunt bison on the Henry Mountains in Dec.

My main interests in firearms are hunting rifles, big game and varmint. I like target shooting, but what good is that nice group if I don't get to use it on something I get to eat. No, I don't eat all the varmints. Some I just put in the Xmas sausage for the neighbors......

Anyway, greetings to all, and thanks for letting me play too.

Greetings from Boulder County, Colorado

Hello one and all,
Been lurking for awhile and thought I'd legitimize myself. I'm here because of the good people and good information. I own guns so that I might be able to defend my family in the event of a BGS (bad guy situation). I own a P220 (on my hip most of the time), a Benelli pump shottie, and a Bushmaster 20" AR type rifle. I've trained with some great people and have a long way to go to being a true gunman. I had the privilege of learning from one of John Farnam's instructors before he (the instructor) was killed in a lightening strike at CSU's campus. We miss him dearly. RIP Marc Richard.

Looking forward to learning from everyone and perhaps contributing.

Hello, I was introduced to this sight by a fellow member at the Ann Coulter board who sent me here to ask for help in identifying a gun that I found in my family. I look to stick around and learn from my fellow gun owners.

I personally own a .243 NEF Single Shot rifle, nothing big, but I bought it with my own hard earned money a couple years ago and was my first gun. Im looking to refurbish my grandfathers Eagle Arms .410 Shotgun that has sat for over 15 or 20 years.

I am The Rodentman from MN. I bought my first firearm in 1972, a S&W 28-2 which I wish I still had.

I currently have:

Ruger Police Service 6 .38
Ruger LCP
Walther (S&W) PPK-S
Kahr PM40
S&W 638 .38

I have a ccw and carry much of the time, although I do travel to WI a lot and cannot carry there.

Not sure what gun will be next but there always is another.

I also am interested in photography, jewelry, watches, and cooking.

Thank you!
