Hey everyone, Just Duwe here. I work for John Deere building tractors. I'm not new to guns but I know there's a wealth of knowledge on here and I'm lucky enough to be able to take advantage. Thanks in advance!

Hello From Vermont!

I'm a 60 something year old guy with a couple dozen fire arms of various sorts. I'm into guns and shooting as a gear head who also enjoys working on my shooting skills and the socialization at thew local gun clubs I'm in.

I will do what I can to help other forum members solve gun related problems I'm familiar with and promote responsible gun ownership here and with my fellow shooters I meet in person.

Thanks for having me here!

WKy saying hi

Hello all, long time reader, first time participator. I have a bit of an obsession with all things outdoors and a lot of that centers around firearms. I shoot all 4 categories and reload nearly all my ammo except for shotgun...it's cheaper to buy "hunnerd packs"...I'm especially interested in revolvers and antiques, most specifically the ones that other folks don't care much about (cheap) but have awesome history.

Glad to be here!

Hello All!

I have been avid hunter and outdoors-man for over 30 years but have recently gotten more interested in self defense and 2nd Amendment issues. I am interested in Glock style handguns and AR-15 style rifles.

Hey West Kentucky, sounds like you're in my neck of the woods. Hancock County here. I'm sure you'll enjoy the site. Great guys and gals and good info.
Peace is that brief, glorious moment in history, when everybody stands around reloading.

I am here because I wanted to find information about gunbidder.com and that I want to admit how much of an old fool I am for buying bid points and totally wasting my money.
I own an IWI Tavor bull pup, HK P30 .40, HK P30L 9mm and a Saiga 12 shotgun.

New here. I've got lots of long guns and lots of hand guns, but no 'black guns'. Started researching ARs and ended up here. I'll have lots of questions coming soon in regards to the .308/7.62 AR setups.

Here's my latest two projects:

An old 870...reborn.

And a Howa I'm still tweaking on.

New Member, Ohio.

I have found myself on this site hundreds of times over the years. Google brings me here every time I search a gun, so I finally became a member. Been a gun owner since I could walk. Glock, CZ, Colt, Savage and Sig are my drugs of choice and I'm looking forward to picking the brains of the members here and trying to add to the group.

Take it easy,

Aussie newbie

G'day all, first time here and it looks very interesting. I'm an old bloke trying to get used to retirement after 57 years of hard yakka (3 months ago). Married late and still together after 48 years. been a hunter and club shooter since tall enough and shot all types of long and short arms. Downunder, gun ownership is now a dirty, political, football. Draconian "noose fit 'n' tighten" laws are the polies favourite past-time. The cops believe they're the guardians of democracy, by, increasingly, adopting nazi-style tactics to ensure our "freedoms"! Like to try my hand at gunsmithing, and have a special interest in building a '73 peacemaker and high wall Winnie, from scratch, to "while the hours away" Looking forward to picking some grey matter because you all seem warm and fuzzy, and I reckon I might like it.

Greetings to all! I like guns. My interest is more with pistols and with those made in the 1980's and earlier in particular. I enjoy reading and talking about guns and seeing pictures too. Happy to be here!

Hello. I am a retired Police Officer. I have eleven children (all adults except for a senior in high school) and have been married to my lovely wife for over forty years. I am more of a shooter than a hunter and most of my trigger time these days is with my Ruger Mark II or Mark III.

Most of my sons (8) like WWI and WWII rifles, especially the M1 Garand and M1 Carbine. Favorite bolt gun? My Remington M1903. Semi-Auto Rifle? .223 Daewoo DR200 or M70AB2. Pistol? Glock 27 or Ruger Mark II, Revolver? Model 19.

Shotgun? I have a 20 gauge Pardner Pump that I am quite fond of.

If I could only own one? It would probably be my Kahr M1 Carbine, folder.
Stay Safe!

new guy here

Hello, My name is Jackson. My handle here is MYGUNPART. I'm totally new to this forum but certainly not new to the firearms community. I am here to hopefully network with some like-minded people about our gun hobby. I mainly collect “all things” browning machine gun. My interests also greatly vary into other guns as well but I do not claim to be a “guru” of anything. I am a collector that believes in helping other collectors. My hobby is to find little parts and I love to help others find their little special parts too. I guess you can say im more of a parts collector than a gun collector... everybody has to have a hobby right? My e-mail is 1919a4@columbus.rr.com and my website is MYGUNPART.COM .
Any collectors here into 1919a4, 1917a1, m2hb, m37, anm2? Hope to speak with you!!!
I am also trying to help a friend locate mg81z parts
I send out weekly letters to my gun community friends with lists of things I need and things I have to offer. Our paths might meet again outside this forum....Really look forward to hearing from any of you here!!!

I'm a proud new Member

I'm new to this kind of stuff. My father was a gun enthusiest and I usually got all my information from him but he passed away and I'm getting my feet wet now. My feelings after reading a bunch of your threads is that this group is full of pro's and activists for weapon rights.

I love fishing and racing as well of course weapons. later
