Hello I am a strong supporter of citizens bearing arms. I love The US Constitution and what it stands for. I love revolvers more than anything. A true lover of the magnum 357 and 44. I recently came across a 32 winchester OTG. Very old can anyone educate me on info for it and value?

Reloadron: Small world! You ever been to the Grand River Wildlife Area range? It's a bit of a drive from Cleveland proper, probably 30-45 minutes east along 422 depending on where you're starting.

I've actually been lurking for a little while, just got around to registering. I like it so far!

Hi all,

I have been around firearms for about 50 years....yup; I am old and gray.

My son is now a gun-guru and walks in the shoes I wished I had. He has learned by example and spends lots of money on good guns.

I gave up hunting a few years ago and now just shoot at the range and buy different kinds of guns than I ever had.

Got some Glocks, a like-new Colt AR15 Govt. Model and a few revolvers from yesteryear.

I am glad to be among some smart folks and have lots of time on my hands to read your posts.

Thanks,
Rich

Something for me to consider. Winters I generally shoot at Stonewall in Broadview Heights, during the Summers I shoot at Kebly's Range in Lawrence, Ohio. I need to get my membership going there this year. Mostly bench rest but I like the place and I'm not a bench rest type.

I recently became interested in shooting firearms (pistol, 22 rifle & shotgun) again. Found this sight while looking for information about my guns. I used to hunt when I was in college. I'm retired and have more time to pursue old interests. I am interested in reading about the type/brands of guns that I have.

Just registered today. I'm in my early 50's, been reloading and casting since I was 14. I really like wildcats and oddball/unique stuff. Although I have a few, I'm not really into shotguns. Handguns and rifles are my thing, did my first "gunsmithing" at age 14, made a firing pin for a NR Davis and Sons 16 ga. double using a hand held electric drill and files. I've done lots of gunsmithing since then, even developed my own wildcat for a top eject M94.
I spent almost 6 years in the Middle East as a private contractor since 2004. I was an MP in the Army right after high school and became the NCOIC of our Arms Room. Needless to say, I love 1911's...

Hi there I literally just registered a few minutes ago. A guy I know told me this a good place for information and relatively polite and rational conversation. I'll probably lurk around and see what's up for a while.

Yes, I'm a girl (young woman, actually). I generally know what I'm talking about regarding guns - I own several of them...guns, weapons, toys, what-have-you.

I carry 98% of the time, unless social, personal or professional etiquette dictates otherwise.

Glocks Handguns

Good evening i'm a new comer, and I'm interested in Glocks and I enjoy shooting them in tactical courses and shooting them at a local range here in Florida.

I'm a left handed shooter and trying to get some pointers on how to be on target all the times, most of my shots go to the bottom right of my target, and I'm familiar with trigger slapping but I dont think that's my case, if someone has any pointer it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You,

Darius Medea

Hi, all. I am a 64 year old, avid gun collector and shooter, who would love to afford many more guns and gun vaults, but finances are limiting in these days of the Obaminator. I am married with 3 adult children, 1 of whom is married with a 1/5 year old son. A second son has a 4 year old daughter (no wife), while the 3rd son (actually the oldest) has a long-term live-in, almost a common-law wife. All 3 are also into guns. I am an Ordained Pastor in a conservative Presbyterian church, a retired Registered Nurse (Psychiatric specialist), a licensed electrician, carpenter, and presently work as a Bank Protection Officer for one of the best known security contractors. I work as an Armed Officer, which for us means a .38 cal. revolver, with the old 158gr. solid point loads. I also ride motorcycles and take photographs, both digital and film. I've been married (to the same lovely woman) for 42 years and counting. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Pleasure to meet all of you.

I wanted to stop in and say hello from upstate NY. I am an avid shooter and reloader for 14 years. Got more than a few manuals and a little bit of knowledge. Always looking for help and giving it as well.

Not new, but never introduced myself

Hi, I am 13 years old (Probably the youngest in the forum) Well I like all kinds of weapons, but specially big guns. I live in Uruguay, In the country and the closest village is 25 km away, so I have lots of space for shooting. (That's good for shooting, but getting ammo is hard) I've been shooting since I was 3 years old, and then I became a gun-addict. I just love shooting, but specially when I hit the target. I love hunting, but I still didn't hunt any big animal. (The largest was a fox) But I want to start hunting wild boar. This is my first time in a forum, and I find people very nice and helpful.

Hello Ladies and Gents

Folks..I'm new. I found this site researching an old trusty " plinking " pistol. I enjoy Hunting and fishing and really enjoy " plinking". The pistol i was researching is an old family ruger Mark 1 with a 5 in. bull barrel, I also own a Browning Buckmark 5+ in bull barrel , a Beretta tomcat and a 50's Single action cowboy style Colt Frontier Scout. A Marlin 39 A completes the 22 rimfire collection. You guys seem to have a lot of info and I look foreword to having a source to contact for those " odd" gun questions we all have. Speaking of questions did anybody ever buy a COLT 1911 and KNOW right then that they were gonna spend money and start customizing it ??? We all can't own a kimber but if ya got the platform , Patience , and money.. you just wanna make it nicer 'cause ya can. Peace , love and spent brass.

Hello From Weeki Wachee, Fl

Long time shooter, reloader, and 1911 afficianado.

I like to work on my own, and occasionally work on other folk's 1911's.

I'm a retired ombudsman, and also am into boating, spear fishing, fishing, hunting, IDPA, bicycling, kayaking, and playing guitar (going on 50 years of playing).

In my spare time, I play in a rock band.

Just checking in, and giving a big hey! To Y'all.
