I'm an equal-opportunity collector. Whichever is the better deal; Colt or S&W.

Been a shooter/collector for 35 years. Don't shoot much anymore; just collect, mostly. Live in SW AZ.

Me? I'm the guy who isn't anybody else. I lean toward semi-autos (of any length) and bolt actions (of extreme length). I'm learning the gunsmithing trade these days, and I hope I never stop learning it.

Nice to meet everyone. Please excuse the "new guy smell". The guy behind me is apparently new too...

Just joined

Just signed up and hoping to learn a little something. Lots of stuff to sort through here. Mostly here to gain a bit of knowledge on shotshell reloading. Been away from it for awhile, kids are starting to get interested and don't want to look completely clueless when asked a question. May very well start with handgun reloading in the near future. Have had a Swede Mauser fixation for years and finally got a CZ550 American in that Caliber. Highly recommend it. Only other caliber near it in my opinion in versatility is .243. At least for my purposes.

Hi all,

I live in CA and wanted to connect with those who have an interest in AR15, 308 builds. Been playing around with this for a few months and found there's a large group of people who enjoy and or are interested in making their own. Looking forward to hearing about your own experiences or opinions on this topic.

Obligatory FNG Intro

I read posts from here from time to time and finally decided to join.

I spent 23 years in the US Army retiring in 2008 as an 11Z5V. Most of my career was at Ft Bragg with 1BCT and 18th ABC. I have peacetime tours of both Korea and Germany. Stateside tours include Ft Jackson and Ft Campbell. Oddly enough, my last duty assignment took me to Ft Sill OK where I retired and still reside (The cost of living here is dirt cheap. Y'all come!)

I did two tours of Iraq and one of Afghanistan, all as a Platoon Sergeant.

Though retired I still maintain a pretty rigorous shooting regimen, getting out to the range 3-4 times a month.

I look forward to getting to know y'all and contributing what little I know to the discussion.

Rossi .38 special

Howdy, this is for the ladies out there that are looking for a great home defense, and target shooting handgun! My husband purchased the Rossi Model 851 .38 +P 4 inch barrel revolver, I shot it today for the first time, and I am here to tell you it is a wonderful gun! Has great front and rear sights, light recoil, and being a petite framed lady the grips felt great in my hand. It is single and double action, with a very light trigger pull in the single action. I also have no problem shooting this gun in double action. This gun gets a 5 star rating from me!

Hi From Kansas

Mostly interested in Concealed Carry but have also been a hunter most of my life.

I live in Lenexa, Kansas which is a suburb of Kansas City.

Almost 58 years old...generally old enough to know better...

I'm a biker...been riding Harley Geezerglides for a long time. Definitely my preferred mode of transportation.

Been married to my high school sweetheart for over 37 years.

Three kids, two boys and a girl...all are shooters and bikers. One granddaughter.

It's nice to be here. Thanks to the creators of this site. Hopefully good education here.

Hello from a Central Florida Newbie

Well, pretty new anyway. I'm rekindling my love of rifles and target shooting and just having a good time with some gentle competition.

My first ever purchase (as a kid all rifles were club owned) are a CZ 452 and a Henry Lever (H001). Simply more fun than should be legal.

And just yesterday, somebody hinted a Winchester would be fun. Obviously 'somebody' knows I have an issue ignoring the screams from my wallet. I'm going to be working till I'm 90 and having fun the whole way.

Hej All

My name is Ryan and Iím new to the site, but Iíve been frequenting it for some time enjoying the nice helpful and informative debate. I live in Scandinavia and learned to shoot in the military with the M49 Sig P210 Neuhausen and have been target/terrain shooting ever since + 30 years. I shoot 3 times a week using my M49 Neuhausen and my Korthís cal. 22, 357/9 mm. When Iím not at the range I am an avid Fly fisherman primarily fishing for Trout, Salmon and Steelheads.

Hello y'all, I'm new here,I will go by the name,"BigDaddyHarris" um let's see. I work in the EMS field, I'm an EMT-I/V. I'll just go ahead and say as far as political views, I'm Conservative. I stand firm on my (your) 2nd Ammendment Right. I enjoy firearms, I live in the country, so I can just step outside and shoot anytime I want to. I live in the great state of Tennessee, been here my whole life, all 39 years of it. I'm also a blade guy! I collect knives. I'm also a Tennessee Titan fan. Ok, that's about it. I'm glad I found this place, looks like some great discussions going on. Thanks.

Greets from a long time shooter

Been some time since, reloading, used to have a gun shop business in Wisconsin. Had most all my firearms/tools/supplies, ripped off in Montana. Thank goodness all I owned were not in the same place. Now retired and finding time to enjoy the sport. Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do! Which includes on how to navigate this new Windows 8 operating system.

Hi I'm, Ed

Special Ed sometimes. I live in Lawrenceburg, KY and I have a CCDWP. I mostly OC in KY during summer months because I can. Most people don't even notice the gun on my hip. Oh yea, been a fan of THR and Oleg Volk for a long time, but just now figured I needed to join, and had something to say.
It is better to be unique than eunuch!
