Hello everyone, born and raised in California, then moved to New Mexico in 92, been here ever since.
Love it here, the low population, affordable land and the gun laws just make this paradise for me.
Looking forward to meeting everyone exchanging ideas.

Hi, I'm new to to The High Road. I started out just buying cheap rifles to shoot then one day, after looking over my collection, a friend told me I was either a collector or the arms room for a neighborhood militia. Guess I'm a collector. I just recently got back to my hobby, now that I have the time to dedicate again. My interests are anything Polish and old bolt actions. I have a few Mosin Nagants, Mausers, and an M1 Garand built with GI parts on a CIA receiver. It may not be historical, but it's fun to shoot.

GrandpaW, where in the Land of Oz are you? I'm in the Wichita area.

Hey all, My name is Randy and I'm from WV. I'm basically here looking for CC info to start with but am sure I'll find much more than that. I just got my CC permit again after a long time of not having it (due to moving from another state and thinking it was a money racket there). I've got 2 new carry guns, Bersa Thunder 380 and a Ruger LC9 and am off looking for info!

I'm here to get away from the "crazies" and socialize with fellow gun lovers. Looking to get into reloading too. I own a SigSauer p238 for CC, a High Standard .45 1911 made by Armscor, a Marlin .22, and a Mossberg 500. I'm hoping to get a Remington 700 .308 in time for this falls deer season. I'm also dead set on becoming a GUNSMITH-- any info or advice from experience is GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Hi to you all,
I am a single mom of a 15 yr. old young man. I was raised "old school" you learn about guns and how to properly handle and care for them at a young age. I have never been and will never be one of those parents that don't want guns in my home. I am and will always be one of those moms who believe guns should be handled properly and guns safety should be taught at a young age.
I come across the forum while trying to find information on a gun I was given. I was given several guns they are...
.38 special Smith and Wesson
50 caliber
30 30 riffle
22 revolver
22 semi auto
16 gauge
20 gauge
The smith and wesson is the gun I would like the information on.
I look forward to being a part of this forum

Checking in from sunny Arizona. I'm into C&R guns and modern revolvers - and just about anything that goes bang!

I do a little hunting but I mostly make holes in paper. I just got into reloading and I find that hobby as rewarding as I do collecting and shooting my guns.

I've been a long time reader of posts on THR and I appreciate how this site is operated and how the members treat one another.

Hi, I'm Bill hailing from Texas. I'm just getting into guns after years and years of guitar. I'm tired and I find guns easier to learn now. I have a Sigma 9mm and it's a sweet gun. Hard trigger yes but not after I removed the torsion spring. This Sat I should be picking up my Sig P250c 40sw at the range. It's my first time I ever own and shot a 40sw. Back in the 80s I had a 357, 38 super, a 380 and a few 22s but they're all gone. Now I will own two.

Glad to be here and see y'all later in the threads.

Hello, I am Chris from Utah (not native but currently residing).

Currently, I have a Ruger 10/22 w/ Chicago conversion. Got a couple of ProMag 50 rd drums w/ it for as well in the local classifieds.

So, I decided I better join up with a gun community and this was my first pick.

Can't wait to become a contributing member of the community. Thanks and see you on the boards.

Hey, all! I'm Dave from pretty much all over the US. I'm an active duty Marine, and still relatively new to competitive shooting. Thus far, I've been competing in Marine Division Matches, and have medalled in both of them, bronze and silver with rifle, silver with pistol, as well as captaining a team to win the division championships... Regardless of all that, I'm realizing more every day that I'm still a novice.

I've got a heck of a collection growing for my weapons, but my new AR match gun is the newest addition-to-be, built around a White Oak Precision upper.

I'm new into handloading, as I was just introduced to it by a friend that was very willing to help me out. I'm also looking to start spreading my wings a bit and go shoot some outside matches. (Outside the USMC)

Look forward to seeing some of you on the firing line!
