Post #100 for me, now I'm a "Senior Member!"

This is my first post in this thread though. I've been around for awhile, I just forgot to check in here first.

Welcome to all the new folks!

Just a little advice:

clips vs. magazines - know the difference

When shooting in self defense - Shoot to stop the threat, not to kill, wound, frighten, warn, or any other reason.

New member, lurked for a few hours and decided to make an account. Avid shooter, hunter, blogger, photographer. Love shooting, not so thrilled about politics but I have a few opinions.

And I hate smilies...if the only way to articulate how you feel is to use a smiley...you shouldn't be saying anything.

Halo - lol. You forgot two: if you state a statistic as fact, make sure you cite your source; and, caliber wars are for noobs.

ShoreLeaveOIC - welcome to THR, you will find that we are a very bunch of people who won't act like or unless you really deserve it. Most of the people are like but sometimes, Ya know what I mean?

Hey, my name is Skippy now living in FL. My dad was a policeman, so I grew up around guns, but I never had any of my own save a couple .22 rifles and an antique shotgun. Recently my dad gifted me with a bunch of old pistols and rifles so my main purpose here is going to be to research this stuff and figure out what I want to keep, what I want to sell, and what needs to be thrown away. I'm pretty sure I have some of each category.

See y'all over in the Firearms Research forum.

I mostly hang out on DefensiveCarry.com under the same screen name. I can't go there during my work hours since I'm a high school teacher and the filters finally decided it was a BAD thing and blocked the site. I'm hoping this site has a benign enough title that it will take awhile for the net nazis to figure things out!

I joined after advised that this was a good place to check out and a good place to possibly sell some of my guns. I need to raise some cash.

I'm looking at the final chance to do something really High Speed / Low Drag as a training opportunity. I never got to go to Ranger school when I was an active duty infantry officer. I did JOTC down in Panama C.A. but that was about it. So finally I'm at the stage of life (50) wjhere it's possible so I've signed up to take Tactical Pistol 1 at Blackwater USA in Moyock.

I've pretty well gotten most expenses covered, but I want some "padding" for souvieniers and emergencies. I'll list the guns on the appropriate thread. I'm also a published author with a real literary agent. When I'm not shooting, teaching (or teaching shooting, lol) I'm writing. Isn't it obvious? I'll bet this meet and greet is ten times the normal length. Pardon me. We now return to our regularly scheduled programming....

RecoilRob pointed me this direction after we "met" at Gunboards where I have been hanging out for 6 years. My accounts there and ParallaxBill's and CMPForums and SurplusRifleForums are all under the membername of "Youngblood", which was already taken when I registered here.

I am looking forward to wand'ring around the place and checking it out.

I'vd already checked in but I wanted to tell everyone for real how glad I am to read ya'll on here. Believe me, I am well aware of the hundred's of years of 'collective knowledge' that is to be found on this site. I bow my head in humble admiration to the founders and builders of this site, and there is absolutely no doubt in my razor sharp military mind but that the answer to any type of question about any type of firearm is to be had somewhere on this site..Walker..

My name is Bryan, I live in NY, sadly because the gun laws suck here. I am a major rifle shooter and collector, as of November 07 I own well over 100 rifles in many different calibers. I am a certified sharp shooter, trained by Military sniper and an SRT sniper(similar to SWAT...only used in a federal prison system). If anyone has questions about basically any gun topic from buying a new one to gun laws I am here, feel free to e mail me if you have a question or any thing, thegunguru88@gmail.com

Smith & Wesson 38 Question

I own several hand guns and a few assorted rifles and my dad's Winchester Model 12 Shotgun.

I'm a consultant that gets to travel the world, primarily in southern Africa for the past 7 years but have not done any big game hunting there. Just look and enjoy as the cost of license and such is too much for my pocket book!

OK, I have a question. My friend has a Smith & Wesson 38 he inherited from his father. It is in mint condition and appears to have been fired only a few times. It's SN 667XXX, found on the butt of the hand grip. The barrel is 2 inches and the gun appears to be nickel plated and beautifly engraved. Black hand grips.

Any idea as to when it was made and the value?

Hey guys I am new here, found out about this place through googling camo rifle, and really like it.

I am 16, just got into arms, about a year ago, trying to find out how I had to secure my 870, by law, and got into the bill of rights, and the second amendment, and am now a Libertarian.

But I got alot to learn, and this seems to fit the bill. Hopefully you guys don't hate me too quick, lol.

Hello from Virginia...

I've been lurking here a while and thought I would say hello to everyone. I have learned so much from reading the forums. I really appreciate the info.

I currently own 3 handguns (A Taurus 66 .357mag, A Taurus PT911, and a Glock 23) and a Mossberg 500 shotgun. I know Taurus gets a kicking but mine are nice and (so far) have been problem free. With the potential political landscape looking pretty bleak for 2nd Amendment rights I intend to buy as many as I can afford. My CCW permit should be arriving in a few weeks as well. Anti-gun propaganda has certainly worked on me. It made me want to go out and buy more guns!

I am John from the English Lake District.I am a Registered Firearms Dealer.I have a love of old and antique shotguns and their history.I enjoy shooting when time permits,especially wildfowling (duck,geese,shorebird).
Admire the USA's firearms lobby,we are rather limited in action and support,shooting in England is a dying sport and pastime.

Talking Howdy from the High Plains

Hey there everyone. I've been coming here for a while to see what people have to say about this gun or that issue and it's been very much an education. Got my Texas CHL this summer. The first handgun I bought was a S&W Sigma 40 and have enjoyed learning to shoot it. Since I started getting good and making decent patterns, I've been wanting to enter the world of .45's. Well, today I stopped into the local gunshop and found the pistol that just seemed too good to pass up. STI Ranger 1911 two-tone steel frame cocobolo grips (I think but they might be mohogany. my knowledge of hardwoods is a little lacking) and best of all, It's made in Texas! just like me.. I think I'll call her Julie.

Get this though. The shop I got it from didn't have a holster I liked so I went somewhere else to pick one up. I've been carrying my 40 cal in a Fobus paddle holster and I really like it. I picked one up for the .45 and when I got it home, the damn pistol rattled around in it like a BB in a boxcar.. ***?? I guess I'll take it back tomorrow and pick up a blackhawk, which, come to find out, is the brand that STI recommends anyway.

So, anyhow.. thought I needed to go ahead and hop on board for real now..

I am a new member and reading through the threads are very interesting.
I am the owner of a Winchester Canadian Centennial 30-30. I have had this rifle for about 15 years and never fired it, the reason being I put it away and could not find it until today. I must really be having more senior moments then allowed. In the mean time I have been using aS&w 9mm. Well that is my story.
