    Hey all. I have always been into hunting and sporting. Love to shoot clay. Like target shooting with my pistols. Recently been trying to edge into some competitions, just entry level stuff. Just started reloading, and decided to seek out experienced minds.

    Hello, my name is Janet and i live in Vermont.
    I've just joined and i'm looking for information on my US Springfield 1873. The serial number is 45405. I've been looking all over the net and found this site. Any info on this rifle would be very welcome ;)
    Thanks!
    Oops..i just read at the top that this isn't the place for questions...i'll have to keep searching i guess.

    Hi, and welcome. I would recommend starting a thread in the rifle section, most members who would be helpful probably don't regularly check the new member section. (And unfortunately, I don't know a lot about this particular rifle.)

    How long is the barrel, and does it have the cartridge for which it is chambered stamped on the receiver or barrel? (Probably says "45-70" somewhere?)

    Hi, Thank you :)
    It doesn't have a cartridge in it. It's the Trapdoor rifle...i know very little about rifles, but it looks exactly like the images i've searched. It's quite heavy, 9lbs?

    I'm primarily into shotguns, own an 870 express. Been trap shooting casually for a long time, picked up my hunter's safety card recently and am just getting into duck hunting. Looking into picking up a bolt action rifle and a handgun, possibly a 1911. Interested in WW2 era guns. Avid fisherman and death metal guitarist. Came here for the lifetime NRA memberships, figured I'd say hi.

    I'm a middle-aged husband, father, and attorney who enjoys his time in the downstairs gun room, attending sporting events (mostly my son's college baseball team), walking the dog with my wife, and keeping up on the socio-political issues of the day.

    I'm a Goldwater Republican (early Reagan), which means I'm a libertarian who's been turned off by both parties lately. I don't think the government should be used as a vehicle to impose one side's values upon others, and that seems like both sides are obsessed with doing that. There was a time when Republicans were opposed to doing that and rightly characterized liberals as social engineers. But since 1973 and especially since 1995, this neoconservative crowd seems to be just as bad if not worse.

    I suppose I'll be contributing some to the Legal forum, in addition to asking questions and seeking advice in the others.

    My collection includes: Glock 34, Glock 19, Kahr PM9, and a Taurus Model 62 Carbine.

    Howdy,
    I registered a while back but haven't posted yet so I figured this was the best place to start. Like all you folks here I love to shoot. I am located in the MN/WI area. I started into reloading earlier this year which has become just as much fun for me as going out shooting. I recently completed a course to become an RSO at the gun club I am a member. I also help out as a shooting coach for a class we have to introduce ladies to firearms and how to shoot. Looking forward to chatting with you folks on THR forums.

    Looking for a good gun forum

    I've been looking for a place to discuss firearms among informed and professional individuals. Hoping this place can fulfill that. I'm a college student in Flagstaff, I'm a big fan of classic rifles and revolvers, metal and wood is my preference.

    Hello,

    My gun is a gp100 with a 3 inch barrel. I am somewhat of a Ruger fan. My wife is interested in a lcr 357. She likes the way the revolver fits her hand and she is not recoil shy. She favors a 1911 45acp but considers it too heavy for carrying all the time. We are both getting ccw permits and will carry everywhere. This is because of an attack by some scumbag who apparently just wanted to hurt someone because he never said a word. He just started slashing my wife with his knife. I heard my wife's screams and rushed outside to see what the trouble was. The guy then turned his attention to me. We scuffled around until I managed to land a solid punch. This caused him to turn and run away. I couldn't follow because my wife needed immediate attention. It took three units of blood and numerous stitches to save her. He is still out there somewhere and I can only hope that next person he tries to hurt is carrying.

    Hello all,

    My name is Brian. I recently inherited 2 Sheridan Silver Streak air rifles from my late grandfather who was a WWII vet(SALUTE) and an avid gun owner. I kind of stumbled onto this site while googling for info on the Sheridans. I know this isn't the proper area for questions but any help I can receive in identifying the age of these rifles or just guidance to servicing them would be greatly appreciated.:)

    I am General Zod. What else need be said?

    Seriously, I'm 40, lived around guns all my life but only own two (now one, since one got stolen...) shotguns - though I've shot pistols, rifles, and shotguns extensively. Mostly target shooting and varmint removal.

    Hello from the UK

    Hello Everyone

    I come from across the pond and am part of the Fieldsports tv channel. It provides coverage of all sorts of shooting, hunting and fishing. I mainly like shotguns and air rifles for hunting. The show covers all guns for different sports. Air rifles,rifles, shotguns and even bows. I am looking to expand my knowledge on firearms as much as possible. For anyone that is interested here is the link to the Fieldsports Channel website. You can also find it on youtube.

    Cheers guys
