I'm Bob from Arizona, high valley desert, and have been shooting/reloading for a number of decades . . . high power centerfire from the mid-60s. Arrived here at THR on a friend's recommendation.

I enjoy testing bullets, mostly handgun, against different kinds of barriers at a testing range on the property. Living in a very rural area, we have all kinds of 2/4 legged wildlife in sizes from javelina to mountain lions/black bears/hogs . . . . . and of course the ubiquitous rattlesnakes.

Looking forward to making new friends.

Bob

Hi there guys. I'm known as RedDaemonFox on TFL, so If anyone I've encountered over there has seen me, hello again!

I'm a hacker, and Bolt gun collector, but I'm getting an SKS soon (really excited!).

I'm here to learn, and have fun and share what know how I do have.

I live in the boon docks of north Florida. I like many different guns types, but love Browning guns in particular (although tops on my list to guns to get is a 300 Weatherby Mark V). I found this site while trying to find information out about gun safes.

Hi all; Been lurking for a while and finally decided to join in. Live in western NY state up by part of America's north coast, ( Lake Ontario). Into just about anything that shoots. Been reloading for 22 years and now I'm even reloading for a buddy of mine. Do about 15 different rifle cartridges and 3 different handgun cartridges. Lotsa good stuff on this site. Glad I found it.

Hello from France.

In the UK, I owned a S&W .44; .357; .22 and a CZ Bruno 9mm. Laws changed and our former PM ordered these to the crusher.
When I retired I left for France 10 years ago with a Beretta 686 12g.
I spend 6 months a year in Florida; I wish I could become a permanent resident.
I have two guns there, a Mossberg 410 pump and a Marlin 22lr used mainly for snakes.

Hello everyone, though I am a new member I have been lurking for awhile. I have really appreciated the intel I have recieved from this site. I am interested in older guns, rifles. Thanks to my Grandfather I have an outstanding collection now. I just need to learn a little more about them, hence the reasoning I joined. Plus the fact that knowledge is power and I could use all the help I could get. Thanks for having me.

Home Defence - auto pistol vs revolver

Being X Military, I used to keep a 45 in my bed stand. The 1911 evolved into a H&K USP but both were large and scared family members when they saw them. A S&W 36 was excellent and could easily be concealed in pocket or hidden in drawer. So impressed, I gave it to my parents.

Now I have a Ruger LCP by my bedside. I have been quite Ill and prefer a compact yet powerful presence close by. Getting tired of changing out mags every 30 days. I was always told to never max out a clip unless it was going to be used immediately. Was thinking about going back to the revolver to eliminate mags and improve reliability a wee bit. J - frame w 2 or 3 inch vs a SP101 in same barrel lengths. Talo has an engraved model for about $699 which looks good.

J frame or ruger, both require an action job usually stared w wolf springs from Wilson Combats tuning kits. I've had my j frame worked on and the trigger deburred of sharp points. Still, my double action is nowhere near the smoothness of my 686 which has had work done on it as well. Anyone else have this problem ?

For someone my age (67) it is a little difficult to get going. Anyway, like most all of you I have a interest in firearms, especially the history. Also I enjoy all my magazines and the articles about new items, ammo, and gear.

Just getting around to introducing myself. My name is Jared. I live in southern Indiana and I've been shooting off and on since I was 4 or 5 years old (I'm 27 now). I've always loved guns and got my first real gun for Christmas when I was 13. It was a NEF Pardner in 20ga, which I still have. The next year my parents bought me a Ruger 10/22 SS with a greenish laminated Mannlicher stock. In addition to those two, I also have a Taurus Judge two-tone with a 3" barrel, a Kel-Tec P-32, a Sig Sauer Mosquito with threaded barrel (haven't got the suppressor yet), a Remington 552 Speedmaster (belonged to my grandpa), a Steyr M 95/30 in 8x56R, a Savage Arms Springfield Model 67 (belonged to my great-grandfather), and a Chinese (Jing An imported by CAI) .410 sxs with exposed hammers (fun and cheap). I have a pretty small fun budget, but I'm saving for a .22 pistol for my wife (range gun) and a couple of good carry guns for my wife and I.

Hello from a major demographic segment member of our sport (white, male, 57 yrs.old). Big into old time black powder but an avid reloader. Mostly into 9mm to feed my CCW practice and small to mid-caliber centerfire rifle. My current project is finding an economical slug load in 20 gauge to practice with that will hit where I aim. I am located in east-central Ohio.
