I'm a fairly new member. I have been a member for a couple of months but have not really had the time to check out the site fully until this week. So far, I have found a lot of very interesting reading material.

I own a Glock 19, and a Kimber Ultra Raptor. I plan to acquire a few more pieces as time progresses.

Thanks THR!

New member,

My wife and I shoot USPSA. My primary is a Springfield XD-40 and my wife's is the XD-9mm compact. We both carry S&W model 60's as backup.

We train at Weapons Training School in Sonora, CA and Front Sight in Pahrump, NV. It's been fun reading some of the posts here.

Great place for a whole host of discussions. Whats great about this board is that the discussions range from lethal to non-lethal weapons.

Hello All. I hope I did not commit a grievous error by not introducing myself first, but her goes nothing.

I am a SC native with Ordnance background (US Army), a lovely wife and 2 kids. Currently we live abroad and I use forums such as this one to placate my gun jones. I hope to keep up with current events as well. Thank you to all for what has so far been a wonderful place to socialize.

Vegas New Guy here

Just found the forum, and I'm a big fan already. I live in Las Vegas and work as the Production Manager on a Cirque show. I have been shooting seriously for 27 years (ouch) and have shot competitively in several disciplines (USPSA, IDPA, Paladin, skeet, trap, 3 Gun, DCM, GSSF). I have a bunch of guns- I quit counting at 70. I am most partial to handguns, shotguns and carbines- I guess that ADD and precision riflecraft don't mix. I also reload for handgun and shotgun.

New hear also. This is my first post. I didn't cheat. I'm not very computer literate but I try. I hope to learn and contribute as well, when I can. I own several 'guns' and have C&R and a carry permit here in my home sate.

Ok, I guess I'll make it page 100 on the welcome list.

The main thing is, I'M A HUGE 2nd amendment activist. I look for articles in virtyally every major newspaper that is anti-gun and attempt to write logical and measured responses to tell them how frigging stupid they really are, ahem.

I live in Spokane, have a CCW and use it. I love anything well-machined whether it's a Mercedes cylinder head or a couple of my FN-Fals. I'm into black powder, fine cutlery, old Jeeps and my wife and kids, not in that order, lol.

I still get excited when I get a great deal or find something really exquisite like a mint 6" Python for under a grand. I'd like to learn about reloading primarily because I do understand that every firearm has a different appetite for optimal performance, as long as the barrel isn't a sewer pipe.

Have a great one, 2 am here and I've been reading here wayyyy too long!

Why not. I'm in the midwest. Enjoy going to the range. And I'm a proud Hi-Point owner. And I don't believe in the 2nd Amendment as it is currently written. So if I decide to actively participate, it should make for some interesting threads and hopefully add some different points of view.

Greetings from Yuma County, Arizona. I am new to the forum and just wanted to say hello. I'm a fierce defender of the U.S. Constitution and a proud patriot. My main reason for being here is to learn from other fellow patriots preparing for WTSHTF. God bless all THR members.

Hi. I'm a complete and absolute newbie - not just to this forum but to gun ownership. I recently inherited two guns: a Colt Huntsman and a S&W 10-5. Prior to a month ago I had never shot a gun. Now I have two whole trips to a shooting range under my belt I'm eager to learn more about my guns, and about gun ownership in general, but I wonder if maybe this forum is designed for experienced gun owners and not newbies such as myself? Any advice?
