    Hello everyone, i've been lurking here for quite some time now and have made the decision to stop hiding in the shadow and create an account. This site is fast becoming my favorite, even more so than my beloved falfiles.com.

    Err, i don't have any guys, but i do have guns ;)

    My primary love is for semi-auto rifles, especially the FAL. WWII era bolt action rifles are also growing on me, I grabbed a German Mauser this weekend and 1k rnds of 8mm and am very pleased.

    Welcome aboard McPherson. Any relation to the General of Sibil War fame?

    BTW, among my black guns (all Nevada residents now) is a Springfield SAR-48 NIB. Bought it years ago but never took it out.

    Hey, welcome! Jump on in to the world's biggest Hot Tub & Open Air Sanatorium! Any number can play! Lotsa nice folks and a few old curmudgeons, but we ignore this latter bunch.

    :D, Art

    Even though my family has it's origins in the south i think its probably a pretty slim chance. Most people ask if i'm related to supermodel Elle MacPherson

    >among my black guns is a Springfield SAR-48 NIB

    Your a luckier man than I, all I have is post-ban kit builds :( but one of these days i'll probably acquire a springfield or pre-89 import. A guy on falfiles was posting pics of his NIB Aussie imported by Poyer, absolutley beautiful.

    Welcome.

    And don't ignore Art, even if he just told you to. His posts are actually quite interesting - for an old curmudgeon. :D
