Congratulations on joining. You will find yourself spending more and more time here, especially when you run into a technical issue and friends and family cannot answer the question involved.

thank you all

sm: our pet shotgun is a mossberg 590 customized for close quarters by my gunsmith husband she lives right outside a spot that has a clear, close shot to the front door and where we can easily get some cover.

pax: I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE! it covers soooo many challenges with concealed carry that i too have experienced, and never had any women to discuss & overcome our specific challenges (especially with wardrobe). It's a wonderful resource for women who carry! I'll be spending lots more time there

pistol-packin-wifey,

We need to talk, and bring the gunsmith you sleep with into my "office" as well.
Have a seat, comfy?

Southern Gentleman I am and all, well it is like this you see. I know about PA, even Pittsburg, they got soft pretzels with mustard and Sheetz.

You are headed South. Fried Apples Pies, DuMond's Benets and Chickory coffee.
Oh not that one cannot duck hunt, quail hunt, dove hunt with a HD gun, just all that trouble for gunsmith hubby to make a Migratory Waterfowl Plug to restrict to 3 rounds only.

$1 says Steve goes there
Heck I got a Twenty says he does!
-THR members

Don't worry about them folks, they blame me around here "for some reason" or another.

Now a lady needs a fine fitting shotgun. One for duck hunting and making duck gumbo...12 gauge , 26" - 28" barrel fits this task real well. Does a fine job on Doves...
Them Doves are sure mighty fine eating. Quail. Always respect the Quail.
Now often one does more walking than shooting. Watching dog work the field is a sight to behold.

28 gauge is what I recommend. Yep, you would like right nice with 28 gauge, I always found them complimentary to 1911s and K frames myself.

Way I figure it, a couple with a 28 gauge each of their own, out behind the dogs ,quail hunting together is, just one of them things couples are supposed to do.

Last time I went out bird hunting the afternoon was spent burning up 9x23 out of a 1911 style Race Gun. Then running and gunning with a carbine and shotgun.

It is all good , just Respect the Quail just means a 28 gauge is all.

Thumbs up

<dr. nick voice>
Hi everybody!
</dr. nick voice>

I've been lurking for a while reading, and actually registered just to use the search function, and came across this thread in the process. Like a few others I'm a poor college student and have just got into target shooting! I've been to a range maybe a half dozen times in my life (my parents were not the outdoorsy type, so I didn't really grow up around them or anything). None of my friends are into it (super liberal hippie school , great education, but not exactly gun friendly to say the least), so I've been lurking through the forums soaking up the great information. My gf (soon to be fiance! ) is accepting enough that we're scheduled for a NRA safety course tomorrow morning, and she's going to try it out as a hobby with me.

At any rate, I have no guns at the moment, as I said I'd wait for her to take the class before bringing any firearms into the home. On the agenda is a .22 (just can't decide which one yet) for her practice, then for me a Sig 226 or 229 (CPO) for larger caliber practice. Although I have been eyeing the slightly more expensive Springfield Loaded black stainless combat model, but that'll probably have to wait till after I graduate, hopefully in just a few months! Once I have a larger income I plan on expanding into rifles, but for now the price of .308 makes me cringe.

So that's me, a Chemistry Major with an interest in target shooting.

Newbe member / Hello and God Bless

Live and work and Lewiston, Idaho. Retired from the local CCI Speer manufacturing facility in the 80's. Now working for another local employer but still shooting rimfire ammo purchased 20 years ago. Most of my shooting is with rifles and handguns. I especially like varmint shooting because of the volume of caps popped during a good days shooting. I enjoy this forum because of the willingness of members to share their experiece/expertise for the asking.

Hello, all. I'm new to the thread, but not new to guns. I carry a S&W 442 .38 special +P and/or a Charter Arms Bull Dog .44 special. Like 'em both, but the CA can be a bit sticky at times. Probably need to send it in for a trigger job.

I live near Portland, Oregon, which is an oxymoronic state (emphasis on moronic). Oregon is very blue, with the bigger cities riding herd over the less populated red parts of the state. Yet they have very (you should pardon the expression) liberal gun laws. No waiting to buy, simple $10 gun check with the state, and "shall issue" CCL laws, which I've tested and found the procedure very easy.

Haven't decided what I like best, revolvers or autos. I'm tending to lean toward wheel guns. My small collection of modern arms is pretty much split down the middle, though. Still, I generally like the way the revolvers perform and handle better than the autos I have. Maybe need to find better autos.

I'm a writer - have 5 westerns published - and I work in business communications. And I don't have nearly enough time to shoot.

This looks like a great site, I'm glad I found it!

I've been around firearms most of my life, and currently carry a Glock 23 and shoot many other guns.

I'm also helping to run a very new Glock oriented firearm forum

Im Rob. I reside in Knoxvegas TN with my wife Jerrica, my daughter Ainsley, and my other babies; Mossberg 870 SP ( remington 870 w/ mossberg special purpose barrel), Mossberg 935 Magnum, Benelli Nova 20 ga. Slug, and last but not at all least Remington 700 SPS in 7mm Rem Mag. I came up on this site by wonderful accident and I look forward to finally being able to talk guns with people who love them as much as I do. Plus I think my wife may be jealous of my newest addition (the Nova), so she really doesn't want to hear about it anymore.

hiya

i'm relatively new to the board (having started a fight over in the legal/political section already it seems )

but as my name states, i'm a female with a CCW. i carry my springfield 1911A1 with a full mag of golden sabres everywhere i go.

i'm passionate about my RKBA and not afraid to get loud about it

my husband is a gunsmith (nice to have in home gun maintenance) and we've collected quite a nice variety of historical and modern weapons. Besides my pistol, i love battle rifles (m14 and cetme are my faves) and sniper rifles (hubby is building this custom one that i'm DYING to try out )

oh yeah, and we're moving to Louisiana this spring! wooohoo!

New Member Hello

I am a hunter (not a FUDD), a shooter (recreational) and gun collector.

My gun interests are wide and varied, with a special love for antique and vintage long guns. I own and greatly enjoy several EBR's, with an eye on acquiring more soon. I also am an avid handgunner.

I am a career Peace Officer (command level), who is looking forward to retirement. I am also a US Army Veteran of 14 years (Active, USAR and USARNG).

Married to a beautiful woman, have 2 kids (one grown and moved out) and have an all around great life.

Last and most importantly, I am an absolutist when it comes to the right to keep and bear arms. No infringements, no compromise, no apologies, no B.S., period.

Hello from Western Massachusetts

Just wanted to drop a quick hello. Looking forward to learning a lot and possibly contributing as much as I can. I am a die hard S&W semi auto guy sporting a 5906, 1911PD and my newest, the M&P40. I do all of my own reloading and it is beginning to become a passion to me.
