Name's RJ, USAF vet, signals... returned to Texas, never want to leave again, ever. I know three rifles: the M-16A2 (which i hated), the Ruger 10-22 (which i loved), and the Winchester 94, though I'm open to Marlin, Mossberg etc. I've drawn a gun in deadly earnest twice, and don't ever want to do it again, unless i'm looking at something edible.
I hate politics, social causes, etc., and will gladly give my vote to whomever seems most likely to tell the truth (not likely), get on with it (good luck), and leave me alone as much as possible in the process.

Greetings From Southwest Florida

I've been picking up great information here for years and finally decided it was time to stop lurking, become legitimate and register. I'm no stranger to forums. You'll find my moniker on several.

I'm an old geezer. So, nowadays my shooting is limited to handguns and targets. I do CC and never leave home without something in my pocket or attached to my waist.

And, while I like all calibers, all sizes and shapes, pistols and revolvers, I've gone "full-circle" in my dotage and mostly enjoy .22 caliber. (Though I still love shooting my .45's and especially .45 Colt.

Well, that's a long winded hello. I look forward to joining in and hope to be able to contribute something, from time to time, as well.

.

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I have my concealed and carry permit and I do my own reloading. My guns are in my signature. I'm usually looking for another gun. Right now I'm looking for a good deal on a S&W 460 XVR mag.

Hey all,

Been lurking around for a time. Enjoyed the discourse so much that I thought I'd make things official and participate.

Mid-twenties, husband, new father, active-duty Army.

I've never owned a firearm before, but I'm very interested in making it a hobby. Looking forward to all of your input, advice and future conversations. Take care.

Forum Rules

I joined this forum a few years back. Have not posted much nor do I view any forum posts by others. I can't believe the type, number of and subject matter of rules stipulated here. Seems anti poster driven, even somewhat open to interpretation. Anyhow just a point of view. Moderators are you anti-gun? Who are you? Is there a location on your website where you've posted your backround and expertise on any subject? I assume this post will be "taken down" by the first moderator who reads it. Please send me a PM. I'd like a comeback.

My name's Walt. I'm retired after 40 years in Aerospace. I collect single action pistols & lever action rifles. I like to reload. My main reason for joining THR is to talk to people who have similar interests.

Welcome and beware!
This forum is almost as addictive as owning / collecting firearms! Lol
Do you hunt or just collect and shoot?
Also what region or area do you hail from?

Hey

I have been inactive due to college and just wanted to say hello again. I'm a relatively new shooter and am getting my CCW soon, or so I hope and enjoy it thus far. I'm from Colorado near the foothills and a few minutes drive from Red Rocks. It's good to be here and I look forward to learning more. Stay safe and God bless

Hello folks. New to the forums and new to shooting. I found THR several times while doing searches for various firearm-related questions. Seemed like the place for solid answers and adult interaction.
That's all I've got for now. Still waking up. Take care.
