Hello all! I posted before I intro'ed myself. It's been some time since I've been able to pick up a few guns ( The BIG D hit me hard financially ). But I have been able to get a DPMS .223, a Norinco , and just last week a Yugo SKS. I really have appreciated all the great advice I received on my Mosin question! Again, Hello to all! Ken

Just signed up after lurking on and off for a while.

Hailing from the great state of TX (only, from one of the counties that voted Kerry in the last election, and happens to be the largest drug route up into the USA from Mexico).

My firearms:

Remington 870 Express Super Magnum (surefire rail forend, Knoxx specops stock, modified Knights top rail, extended magazine tube, Mesa Tactical magazine clamp w/ side rails)

HK USP45 Tactical (vortex muzzle brake, B&T quad rail)

NAA .22LR mini-revolver (holster-grip)

Kel-Tec PF9, Parkerized

Savage 10FP 20" barrel w/ Choate folding stock

JLD PTR-91F (paddle mag release, bayonet adaptere, Magpul PRS-G3 stock, B&T tri-rail handguard, B&T tri-rail scope mount, Smith Ent. HK91 Vortex brake)

RobArm XCR 5.56

KCI Speedload AK




I work for an optics company (in the field of military and hunting optics as well as lasers for medical and industrial purposes) that does a considerable deal of business in Asia, and I am currently on an extended stay in Taiwan to help start a company for purposes of import/export (I have yet to see my RobArm XCR in person!)

I intend to start a small business of my own when I'm back in the states, offering consultation on federal and Texas law involving firearms, concealed carry, and self defense; choosing weapons for home defense and carry; non-firearm related self defense and other similar topics that I hope will get more people to stop seeing firearms as inherently evil.

When my collection expands (and it's bound to... I'm being paid rather well for my services overseas ) I'm likely to start offering range time on some of my firearms as a service of this small business, charging a small fee for the service and for cost of ammunition. I mean, giving advice on guns, and letting people try out some of mine is something I've done on occasion anyway. I figure I might as well get paid for it.

Hi everyone, newbie here in this forum.

Been shooting pistols and full auto firearms since I was 9 years old. I'm from a family with a rich military background and I do hope I can contribute some info here as well as get info to enhance my firearms knowledge.

If anyone has info, links, manuals, articles or materials on the Taurus PT 640 PRO kindly send me a private message....

Peace....through superior firepower!

My name is Laith and I live in Las Vegas. I'm 21 and got into guns at about 18. My interest in guns can be summed up in two words--FULL AUTO. I enjoy shooting AK 47's and 74's mostly, and look forward to learning more about shooting.

Hello

Hello everyone. Someone told me about this site, and when I came on to check it out, I know I had to join. I haven't had time to look at a lot, but was I have seen looks like this will be a place worth be involed with. I'm 23 near Gary Indiana. I grew up in a gun free home. My mother hated them. It took me a few years to explain to her all the benifits. A couple of years ago, I got to thinking, and decided I was going to buy a gun. A buddy helped get me started. I only have my SW 357 so far. My mom, and dad have a 9MM now. Theres still a lot of learning for me to do. I think this place will have just about any answer I need.

Stopping by to say HI

Just a quick note to introduce myself.

I am into a variety of firearms and have no favorite means of slinging projectiles down range.
I prefer the challenge of a handgun, but find rifles soothing; as, one MUST relax and control breathing in order to maintain proper grouping.
Controlling your breathing relaxes the body.
It's a Win - Win situation.

I love to learn and will be lurking quite a bit.

Topics of interest (lately):
Survival, Camping, Firearms accuracy and methods of improvement, Concealed Carry Laws, Maintenance / restoration...basically everything about THR interests me.
That's why I am here.
I hope to contribute meaningful content from my accuracy / timing discoveries and learn a lot from the esteemed members of THR.

Thanks for making this forum available!

Hi, I have lurked here off and on for a couple of years. Will be purchasing either a handgun or a shotgun this year and don't know enough about guns to make a good decision.
So you have received a heads-up as I will surely ask questions that are typical of a first-time gun owner.
Thanks ahead of time for your patience and assistance.

Hi Lilly ! WELCOME !

I don't think you will have problems finding people to offer advise and help for first time shooters , or buyers. Most of the time the hard part is going through and picking out what you can use.

It's always nice to find a local spot where a person can shoot and also get some hands on advise. My only advise is to take a little time and try to find a range where you can shoot the type of firearm you want to buy or at least handle it.

Safety training, etc is always advisable - if not formaly from some classes, perhaps you have relatives or friends that are willing to share. At any rate - good luck , stay safe , and keep hanging around. There are no bad questions so feel free to ask away .

Greetings from Houston

Hello all,

I heard about THR from a gun store employee. I was about to make the mistake of trading in my Springfield XD for "cost minus X percent" when he told me that I should try these forums first.

With that, I would like to say hello to everyone, and shamelessly plug my XD

http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=362976

BE SURE TO PM ME WITH OFFERS!!! GO GO GO!!!

Alright....DONE!

Well, I've enjoyed reading the threads so far, and hope to contribute to a couple of dicussions in the future.

Goodbye for now!

Im a new member - an introduction

Hello just signed up, I have been on this forum before to read the posts.

I am very interested in the Black rifle and any military firearms (anything tactical).

I am also interested in hunting and hunting hardware (rifles, shotguns, clothing)

I also hike and fish when I can find the time

Most importantly I am extremely interested in stopping the anti-gun people and their organizations that try and take my god given freedoms away.

Hello all. I'm from western NY. I love hunting, and shooting. I carry wherever I go. I do have a NYS authorized Pistol Permit (PP) even though I realize these (permits) are not necessary (see Shutlesworth v. City of Birmingham, Staub v. Baxley, and Cantwell v. Connecticut) for rights.

I own a varied assortment of firearms, and like shooting them all. I also bowhunt. Libertyhawk needs to contact me, and therefore I am including my email address here. SCOPE has a NYC chapter, and the gent in charge may be able to help with any problems. Contact me at prusin@rochester.rr.com.

I am a board member of SCOPE, and write for their newsletter, "Firing Lines" which is accessible through their website http://www.scopeny.org. Click on the yellow box on the left hand side of the page which reads "Firing Lines."

Hey y'all. As you can see, I am a fan of Kimber 45's. A bit on the pricey side, but it shoots where I aim it. I also have a Taurus .38 for wifey-poo and a SA XD9 sub-compact for my everyday carry. NRA member and getting active in defense of the 2nd Amendment. I hail from the Carolinas (just moved from North Carolina to South Carolina).
