Currently own K11,No4Mk2,10/22,41 Marlin,44 Marlin,11-87,Uberti 1885 in 45-70.
Also alot of antiques,Snyder,M/Henry,a few rolling blocks,310 cadet and others.

I do plenty of reloading and casting!

Hi, my name is Nick and I'm a gun enthusiast so naturally I have been joining different forums obtaining all the knowledge I can. I'm new here but I'm an active member on other forums so I may already know some of you. I collect, build and currently own all different types of guns from black powder to assault rifles with everything but a can opener mounted on them. I look forward to what this forum has to offer.

Welcome to the forum but...
The correct term is modern sporting rifle NOT assult rifle
remember the gun hating left wing liberals coined the term "assult rifle"
home defense weapon is acceptable

Well if you knew what I owned you would agree they are assault rifles but for the sake of the liberals I only own modern sporting rifles.

Charlin 20 gauge shotgun

My name is Tom and my recent membership is based on my acquirement of a Charlin shotgun. I believe it's 20 gauge and it may be a 1920's to 1940's model. It appears in good shape. Not being learned in guns and certainly not french sliding breech loaders, I'm attempting to educate myself regarding it's vintage, history and how it may be disassembled. I'll probably bring it to a gunsmith but am wondering if anyone using this site is familiar with this type of shotgun. Thanks.

Hey Everyone.

Just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself. This looks like a really good group and I'm excited to be part of the discussion.

Beside liking ice cream and long walks on the beach, I spend most of my time trying to finish my degree at UNC, training my purebred mutt retriever Molly (half lab, half coonhound, all sass), and working on my little 500cc motorcycle. Then Fall rolls around and I'm busy tripping over sunken logs and falling in over my waders around the local waterfowl impoundments. I have a small pump action shotgun addiction for which I am seeking treatment. Its an uphill battle, but I remain hopeful.

Glad to have made your acquaintance.

Greetings 2A practitioners. As for introductions, I'm a Native Oklahoman, working on my PhD, and I prefer cowboy action firearms (Leverguns and Single Actions). Don't get me wrong, I do own modern sporting rifles and semi auto handguns but get they just don't give me the same satisfaction as an old levergun.

Hello all, as an intro I have often stumbled across articles here, and since I'm getting serious about getting a rifle and learning to hunt I thought I would finally join. As some background, I was born and bred in Central VA (where I still reside) and come from a once-vegan, now-vegetarian household, which makes for interesting discussions about my desire to hunt lol. As for other interests, I am very in to martial arts (Karate, out of practice now though), darts, psychology, film photography, old books, etc. If there is anyone in the Central VA area with advice on shooting ranges/retailers feel free to PM me, would love any advice to get started.

Hello to All. I'm west of Salem,OR. I'm a second generation NRA Life Member. My brother and I used to own "SportsWild" Sporting Goods in Red Bluff, CA. We were both FFL dealers at that time. I like to target shoot and work on my own guns. My wife likes to shoot our High Standard Sport King more than the others. She can write her name with it. My favorite pistol to shoot is my Dan Wesson 1911 10mm Match. I am registered to two other gun forums and find that I learn a lot from reading them.

Hi Everyone,

I am a new member as of today and I am pleased with the responses from this community. I am a combat infantry veteran of OIF/OEF with the 82nd ABN and I just now have recently started to get into shooting in the civilian world. I have purchased a S&W Shield so that I can get my CHL and I have my sights set on getting a SOCOM 16 but its going to be a while!

I live in texas and I have a great outdoor range that lets me shoot out 1000 yds so I can't complain!

Hello all,

I made a few posts before I discovered this thread, but better late than never. I'm into casual plinking, mostly .22, and trap shooting. My taste in guns tends to run to the unusual, and my current collection includes:

Beretta Neos .22
Beretta Tomcat .32
Puma PPS/50 .22
Carcano 6.5 Cavalry Carbine
Winchester M70 375 H&H
Weatherby MKXXII .22
Marlin 983S 22WMR
Browning Gold Hunter 12GA
Cogswell & Harrison Avant Tout 12GA BLE

I'm looking forward to lots of enlightening discussions with like-minded enthusiasts!

Hey guys just found this place. I got back into shooting about 7 months ago after a 5 year hiatus where I sold everything off. I'm just into plinking and target shooting as most of my guns are range toys. I like to tinker too...enjoy working on my guns as much as shooting them.

Here's the start of my new collection. Next gun to come off layaway is CIA 93 (HK93) clone that I'm going to roll the dice. It's going to be a project build and I wanted to do something different than an AR or AK.

Hello y'all! My name is Joe and I have been lurking on this site as a guest and finally joined. Thank you for all the information. I am an avid handgun shooter and currently own 6 handguns of various calibers from 22 to 44 mag. I just recently got back into handgun shooting after a 3 hear hiatus due to a near fatal motorcycle accident on the racetrack. I suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury and an unable to do many of the things I used to do. But shooting has remained with me!! Thank goodness! I enjoy it so much. Sounds weird but being at the range shooting and at the loading table is very peaceful for me. Almost like it gives my brain a rest. I look forward to the information y'all provide and I hope to be able to contribute. Be safe everyone and have a wonderful day!
