Doing some research on firearms assembly led me to this site. Looks like a bunch of heads up guys so I thought I would give it a try.

I live in the high desert of western Nevada and am into coyote, deer, elk and bird hunting.
I'm a retired law enforcement type. Used to shoot revolver competitively and thinking about getting back into it, although the old eyes aren't what they used to be. I also hunt in California as I have a lifetime CA hunting license.

Looking forward to participating in this forum.

Hi Dan,
I bought 40 acres east of Winnemucca, last year. Hoping to be able to be able to spend about 5 months a year out there with the remainder in South Florida. still a few years from retirement though.

I've been thinking about getting into reloading. Ammo costs more than I can afford to shot. It seems so complicated & expensive to get started, what with all the different tools and items from different manufacturers, not to mention not knowing how much powder to load, how hard to pack the bullets into the casings, etc. How did you find out about all that stuff? I'm a true novice and need all the helpful information I can get.

I started by reading 3 manuals which contain load data, and 2 "how-to" books. I read, and researched on different websites - such as this forum - for about 2 months. Here is a sticky from this forum that was a great help to me on how to get started, and what to research. Best of luck!

Wow. What a great source of information on reloading. Thanks for the response and I will try to get some of those manuals to read. Looks like one needs the equivalent of a collgeg education, and a bank full of money to get into this part of the shooting sports.

Hello everyone, reporting in from the state of Utah. Every time I have a question I seem to end up here so I figured I may as well join up. Have to many guns to list but lets say I have the basics, Glock 19, AR-15, and Remington 870 security, plus many others.

Glad to be here,
Joseph

Hi from Israel

Hello everyone,

I'm a brand new member here, live in Israel on the Golan Heights, and am the happy owner of a Glock 19 second gen, minus trigger, extended slide release and mepro night dot sights.
I shoot about twice a month, and hopefully will be able to start shooting IPSC soon.
As of long rifles, being in my village response team, I use an m16 a1 carbine in it's juice, but plan on adding it a trijicon reflex sight when possible.


I am looking forward to learn a lot from this forum that seems to be quite informative.

All the best

I live in NC and I'm a Navy vet. My interest in guns is from a self defense and target shooting standpoint. We own a Rossi .38 and just purchased a Glock 26. I just completed my CCW training and I'm really interested in target shooting to get my proficiency up. Look forward to getting lots of info here.

I would point out too that there is a Firearms Research section if you have any questions about something in particular that you've come across, as well as a buy/sell/trade section.

Hey folks. Mic here. Checked this place out a few times, but just got registered. Spend most of my forum time at TexasGunTalk (post as Mic over there), but also wanted to have a nationwide gun gathering place to spend time on.

I'm a lover of guns. Do more practice with handguns than anything, but own rifles and shotguns as well. Big fan of Sig (name might have given that away).

So hello!

Hello Forum :-)

Just wanted to introduce myself here by thanking all of the many posters for the valuable knowledge. I have been reading threads for a while while taking the steps to get my CWL here in Florida. Which gun to chose, class, appointment at the Dept. of Agriculture (***?) have all been made with your help (and the search function), thanks again for that.

Now I am reading about carrying how-to's and such, all very interesting and it looks like i will be spending good money finding the right way for me to do so. With the weather here, but being a rather conservative dresser I should find something that works. I have certainly learned here that this (how to carry best), as with the "right" weapon / caliber seems to be a very personal decision that no one can really help with. Just got to go out there and try things out.

So, I wish you all a safe and great new year, as I get more experience, I am sure that I will also develop from an avid reader to a poster as well.

Cheers!

Will
