I'm not only a new member to this site, but am new to guns.
The only experience I've had with guns is that about 30+ years ago I was on the college rifle team (.22 single actions).

I need a hobby. I'm semi retired from the real estate business. I can't hang around bars all day and I'm tired of "losing with the best of them" at the horse track. (I live in Las Vegas).

Looking at the available "youth" rifles (I'm a short/small man), I stopped when I saw the Marlin 336Y youth model. It jumped right off the page at me.


Any advise would be helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Hello folks,. Mitchell here in Hartford, VT right on the NH tax-free border. I do all of my shopping there in West Lebanon, NH. I always open carry my G17 there and no-one seems to care. They likely think that I am an LEO. Well you all have a nice day.

Hi there! My forum name sounds kinda female, but I'm a male German of 25 years. I currently reside in Vienna, Austria, studying, working and living my life. Although neither my home country, state or residency nor the European Union have anything close to the second amendment, I'm still very much interested in firearms. I've had the biggest toy gun collection as a little one and I made every stick of wood into a rifle then, now I'm grown up but I still like to read on developments in the world of arms.

I hope to catch some interesting discussions here, find some new infos, maybe make some intercontinental friends and when I do get around to my long planned cross USA bike ride, I'll maybe have some ideas of where to at least once in my life have the chance to shoot the beauties some of you can legally buy in stores - which is as alien to me as if you'd be able to buy plutonium.

Good morning, I'm a new member from Arizona. I'm a former Marine and a rifle/ pistol instructor. I hope to learn more about antique firearms, since most of my experience has been with black rifles and pistols.

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I don't spend a lot of time on forums, but found this place when looking for plans for a custom gun cabinet.

I live with my family in Montana. I am a preacher, an Army vet, and proud to be a red-blooded American.

I'm looking forward to checking this place out...

Good morning! I am a new member from sunny (today, anyway) California. I work in aerospace as a buyer, and wanted to stop in and say hi. I've been lurking for a couple weeks now, absorbing what information I can, and hoping to make a first purchase in the relatively near future.

Well. I guess I'll introduce myself too. I "officially" live in South Carolina, but in reality I live in hotels all over the mainland US doing contract work.

Have a farm in North Carolina where I grew up that I spend weekends when I'm not working out of town.

Main interest is black powder hand guns. Also have a couple of BP long guns. Just a few modern firearms. Somehow they never caught my attention like the BP stuff.

Mostly I like the reproductions because I can tinker with them, and if I wreck one I haven't wrecked a valuable antique. My wife says it's a science project for me, and I think she's right.

I am new here from Texas, been a hunter from the time I was big enough to go with my dad. I like large caliber rifles, 1911 45's, 10 and 12 guage shotguns and Rock River AR's. I joined to gain more knowledge, I do not know everything there is to know about guns, hunting, women, cars or motorcycles.

Hey Guys, I'm from AUstin TX and signed up here a while back but never really hung around because I didn't own anything at the time. Looking to change that now so I plan to purchase something soon and be more active. I do not have a vast knowledge but I have handled weapons before obviously so I look forward to learning more.

Hi all, I'm from the Minneapolis `burbs, trying to expand on my firearms knowledge after a few years of very infrequent and informal shooting. I have a couple of 9mm pistols and .22 rifles, and hope to learn as much as I can online when I'm not able to get out to the range.

Just joined today. Been shooting for about 12 years: recreation and in law enforcement. I like old military rifles, just picked up an Inland M1 last weekend. I like anything that catches my eye.

Currently in Western Washington. I enjoy tinkering with guns, but not a smith by any stretch.

Hopefully I can bring something to this website.

Hi all. I am a new member and my firearm interest is kinda all over the map. I work at my local gun store so I get to see and drool over a lot of different stuff on a regular basis. I guess my personal collection leans tward semi-auto handguns since I shoot those most often. I do have a small variety of long guns (a couple of AK's, AR's, .22's, and shotguns) but that is a more recent thing to try and become a better all-around shooter.
