Hello, I am looking for good info and my buddy said this was the place to get it. I like long range toys for the most part. I have a 50 bmg and I load for it.(really hungry rifle). I have gotten into the ar's pretty heavy just cause they are cheaper to feed.

Hello. just registered minutes ago. I prefer rifles for modern weapons and blackpowder for collectibles. Currently I own nothing but desire to have a decent lr22 rifle and the navy colt .36 service pistol. I prefer the blackpowder but they are HEAVY. I am 40 yrs old and recently unemployed, hence no collection to brag of.

A few helpful clues

Not that I'm bias, because I've owned on for almost 20yrs; actually have 2 now-put the older walnut stock one away. The 12ga shotgun I'm talking about, is the Mossberg 500; capabilities to turn into a black powder, upland waterfowl, power to humanely dispatch any North American big game, predators(coyotes, hog, etc), and the perfect home defense tool; they're so customizable. I'm sure your significant other would agree.
Now others with bigger price tags are out, but they are wonderful guns; check the listed sites.
Always shoot safely, or receive proper training.


Two very informative sites.

a little bit about myself i think a can manage that. first of all i love guns and will take any opportunity to go shooting. i have only been heavily interested in guns for the last 3 or 4 years but i like to think i know enough that i won't be asking questions all the time . i love the 1911 but i tend to rave about gun i don't care for so if i start to rant stop me before i get into my stride.also if anyone here can tell me what it takes to become a firearms instructor that would be great

Active Army vet, currently in the Reserves in NorCal.

Just finished my tour in Afghanistan.

I've exercised my RTKBA, and have a couple of firearms.

A friend shipped a non-replica 1853 Enfield .58 cal musket to me, now I want to put at least one round down the pipe at speed, so I'm doing research on caps, ammo, & muzzleloading.

I plan on using info gained by you fine folks, and perhaps learning something I can contribute. Thanks much, see you at the range!

I am a long-time gun enthusiast with a collection of inherited rifles, shotguns, and handguns. I also have my own acquired guns, which I have accumulated over the past several years. I love to shoot and am fortunate to have an indoor range five minutes from my house. I also enjoy reloading handgun and some rifle ammo.

Since I keep finding myself guest-trolling various gun reviews, I figured it's time to join in. My name is Brian and I'm a pretty avid shooter and enthusiast. Two years ago, "collector" would have closed out my description, but alas.... my buy-a-toy, sell-a-toy rule led me away from a dozen or so in favor of a motorcycle. I've slowly rebuilt the stockpile and hope to be a "collector" once again.

I have experience with several different makes and models and hope to contribute along the way. I'm not L.E.O. or former military, but have the utmost respect for those of you who are.

Hi everyone! I enjoy hunting, fishing, being outdoors and especially being able to go shoot. I joined here because every time I had a question about guns this is where I ended up at.

Hello my name is Rico, I am somewhat new to guns. (about a year) But I know a decent amount about them so far. Every time I had to look something gun related up I ended up here, so today i finally decided to join so I can gain some wisdom from some people who actually have it. I love all guns. And will appreciate any wisdom shared.

New here! Grew up in northern NH. Hunting was normal and I also hung around some trappers(in 1981 they were common) Live in SC now and love the deer season we have!
In 8th grade(1985) i received a ruger 77/22 from Dad! He is a Winchester man that turned me on to Ruger rifles.
Im a NRA member since 92 and will try to coax anyone who wants to shoot at my place. I have had many people say thanks for teaching them how to shoot! The most common reply is" thanks for helping me feel comfortable with a (gun)! "I hear often that" I went to a gun shop and they just handed it to me!" 'I felt like an idiot".
Im here because of a new /old Colt. I like this site!

New member here from Bakersfield, CA. I'm a machinist at a job shop serving a number of different local industries, and the boss, who is an avid shooter, has just made the decision to take the plunge, get the required licences, and add a gunsmith shop as a sideline. So I find myself in the position of needing to climb the steep learning curve of gunsmithing knowledge, as quickly as I can.

For my part, I've been shooting since early youth, and as of late I've been enjoying trap and sporting clays with my Weatherby 12 ga. pump action.

Looking forward to learning from the fellas around here... looks to be a very comprehensive and well-run board!

Hi all,

I am in Texas, formerly from the people's republik of CA. My interest is in anything about firearms. From C&R to polymer. Got started late in life, but am working a bit at a time in building my collection.

I have a 91/30 MN that I have put a Timney Trigger and Mojo Peeps on that I use for hunting. Got a decent hog with it this week.

I hope to aquire a M1903A1 Springfield or a Garand. Just have to run it past the CFO to ensure continued marital harmony - lol.

As a lot of the tag lines state, I agree that we must all remain vigilant against those who would take away our rights. Without souding like a commercial, it is important to be a member of an organization, numbers count and the politicians know it. NRA, SAF, or your state rifle/pistol organization will do. Be vocal, be intelligent, and most of all have fun!

NRA Life Member.

Hi, Newbie here from the Philippines... Am previously an airgunner and had upgraded to powder. I used to hunt(small preys only) sometimes also and I have a Remington 870 shotgun. I have a second hand Anschutz 1415/16 I bought from a friend. Quite a good rifle, I won some trophies and medals with it in our local 22lr competitions. Just recently bought a 1911 format 40 S & W pistol and would like to try joining our local pistol shooting...:-)

Just be given an old Dillon reloader by my brother n law and I'm trying to use it now for my own pistol shooting... quite an interesting hobby I may say and its still working well although it has a broken bracket before. I tried around 18 rounds already of my own load and I think its ok. My next steps would be to know their fps..:-)

My first gun by the way is a compact two-tone Tanfoglio I bought with y first salary after I graduated from college.. A nice compact gun and hard to hit a first but now after some practice I'm hitting with it at around 15 yards..:-) Its a 9mm by the way...no troubles with it so far...:-)

Thanks for approving me, I'm glad to be here Guys!

The name's Matt. Interests include anything that goes bang, long range target shooting and anything handgun related that doesn't deal with hypothetical self defense daydreaming.

learning more

SWSS here from the Volunteer State!

I own more guns han my MIL likes, but she has no problem shooting any of them!
I work for Smith&Wesson Secutiy Solutions - yes, THE SMITH&WESSON, no, I cannot get you any killer deals, but i might do some trading on my bargain purchases...

Over the last several years I have noticed my patriotism rise as our country sinks. I love the freedoms we enjoy and it is truly the land of the free because of the brave!

I have been in various roles of national security and law enforcement but now i am enjoying the "fun" of it, if you will.

I see a lot of information here and look forward to gleaning some.

Help with a research study

Hello everyone,

I am currently trying to complete a research study for my masters program. My study focuses on concealed carry laws. I have a simple questionnaire that I am hoping people will able to fill out and return to my email address at the bottom. It is completely confidential and at no point will anyone's personal information be asked. I look forward to seeing some of your responses.

Hi from Alaska! I don't know anything about this site other than a string of arguments about COP 357 pistols. Does anyone know how to get into the action and clean it up? It looks like there's a pin on the backstrap than can be removed for disassembly but I wonder how hard it is to get back together? Thanks, RScott
