    You're better off asking in the Firearms research subforum or rifle subforum.

    Hi, guys! My name's Carl. originally come from Germany but over the past 4 years I`ve been living in the USA,the best country in the world.. I have the best job.. I'm a private investigator and I deal with criminal investigations, people searches, unfaithful wife/husband investigations.. full of adventures!!A friend gave me a few websites and forums where I can get a real advice.. I have a whole bunch of different suveilance scopes, binoculars, range finders, night vision. I got lots of things to tell about and I`m sure you guys have a lot to share too... I like shooting targets now and then but I never used weapon on people and I hope I never will.

    Hello Carl,

    I was glad to read that you're from Germany, too. Where did you live here?
    Would be nice to chat a little bit with an "ex-german" who moved to the US :)

    Greetings,
    Betty

    Greetings from Idaho, the land of bacon bits, chives and sour cream...or was that potatoes?

    Although I have been around guns all of my life and have my CWL, my recent purchase, Ruger 556e, will join my favorite SW Airlight and the ever present 870 in the cabinet and I will be checking out the info here so I can properly populate my new arrival. It is at the smithy now where he is doing the trigger and a few other goodies. The scope is left up to me and I will be checking out the latest here on Highroad before I buy. I swear, I have NEVER seen so many options for a platform of any kind or in any other item on earth!

    I will be taking it to one of the few long range venues in the area even though we have plenty of open spaces close by. It is there I may find my future EX wife, and I want to make sure I am well practiced.

    For some reason I want to get good at long range shooting and want to see just how far this baby will be letting me reach on a consistent basis. If I am good at golf putting and billiards, it may carry over, I dunno.

    My salesman at Sports Authority promised me 3 boxes of ammo when the shipment arrived a few days after the buy. He found it in his heart to sell me 10! Since then, I have seen scant inventories and like you, I am wondering if I should hold on to the 10 just in case the SHTF, or just go out and shoot 6-7 and hoard the rest. What say you?

    Hi all. Another newbie here. I`m from Indiana, just retired. As my handle says, I love guns. and that is pretty much all guns. However I am totally new to shotguns, just recently acquired my first 2, a Mossberg 500 and a H&R Pardner. Both are 12 gauge. So I probably will be asking lots of questions about them.
    I`m a gamer, I love heavy metal music, blues music, and I still play guitar, ha ha go figure that one.

    Howdy..I am an old Texas boy and fairly recently retired long time po po. I come over to shoot the bull. I have a Sig P 226 of which I am mighty proud and a NAA mini .22 which been in the family for years and has recently been refurbished up to show room specs. Also a rusty .12 gauge single shot in the front closet...but no shells for that presently. Mighty nice to meet all. Like the old rectum adage as compared to opinions..we all got em and I got a bunch..lol. Kindly dont axe me stuff unless you want to know something..lol.

    Hahaha Bingo!!! That's what I do))) But I really love it..that's very interesting.. I can' imagine my life now without this job. The most pleasurable out of this all is to get my friends together for a couple of beers and tell them all of my stories.. it's a lot of fun

    Hey, nice to see a girl from Germany here! :)

    Why don't you join a shooting club, so you can buy your own firearms?
    The German Reservists' Association (Reservistenverband) is recognized as a shooters' association and would surely accept an active soldier. They demand very modest fees, don't bother with airgun shooting and don't frown upon military-style handguns or rifles.
    PN me if you'd like to have more information.

    Hi all, Retired Army here. Just looking to get more informed. This site came well recomended.

    Of course, there are also girls ;-)
    In the US there are more female gun lovers than here in Germany, I suppose?

    This forum is just amazing, read here a lot and decided to finally make an account....

    Greetings!....

    My name is Tim. I am retiring from the FD after 35 years in Nov. Just got a hip replaced, they're planning on doing the other side in June. I love the out doors, being around the water. I shoot, fly fish, camp, have just taken up reloading and have lots of questions. Married 27 years, 5 kids (all girls), Christian. Looking forward to building some new friendships here. Weapons include M14, M1, AR, 12 Ga., two 9mm pistols, .22 pistol and all the girls have 10/22s. Don't hesitate to intro yourself if you are located near Temecula, CA. Would enjoy meeting you.

    newbie

    Thanks everyone,
    I purchased my first handgun two years ago without seeking any advice. Big mistake. I have since learned a lot from the members here visiting as a guest and now a member. I encourage anyone interested in getting into handguns to tap into the vast knowledge available here. I have since purchased two more revolvers and with your help, have made the right decisions. It would only be fair to warn newbies that they will likely be hooked. I have it bad! Thanks again to all members......p.s..I now reload...guess thats phase 2. LoL

    Justin- Moderator, what is a Moderator?

    New to Guns recently purchased some and taking classes.
    I do not know how to use a sight like this; not new to computers just never had call to use forums before. This one sounded inviting.

    What is the title line used for?
