    Greetings! As a 'just joined' new member I'll tell you I found this site doing a search for info on a 1917Colt revolver that I own. Have been a collector for more years than I like to think about and currently in process of reducing the collection down to the ones I actually need and use, if such a task is possible.
    I currently live in Georgia and my main outdoor pursuits are fishing and hunting waterfowl.
    Looking forward to joining in meaningful discussing on the site.
    Thanks, and
    Best regards,
    trapperP

    Hi everyone
    From South Africa, not new to guns but definately not an expert. I prefer to read more and post less which helps me learn more and at the same time keep the taste of my foot out my mouth:)

    Glad to be a part of this site. I was a serious lurker for the past few months. Lots of great info and info sharing here. I live in Central Virginia and have been around guns all my life. I like almost all types of guns and have many old S&W revolvers that still get most of my time. I also of course have the more modern Glocks, Sig's, etc. and just started to get more into the MSR's. I plan to restart my reloading that I gave up and may need the guidance of the experienced reloaders here.

    New Member Hello. I'm a paper puncher only and the lastest project has been a 1911 SA "Loaded" Target model I purchased. It sounded like a great deal when I viewed the 3" x 5" card at the gun club, and the gun looked great in person. ... Never judge a book by it's cover, or a used pistol either. I invested a grand on the purchase and have been throwing money at it for the last year. If anything I've learned in life is that an education costs ~ always. Still regardless of the money, I've learned a heap about 1911's and on that it's been worth it. Still, like reloading and what you invest in that angle, costs a lot too, but when ammo is very expensive and nobody can find anything that doesn't cost a buck a round, it good to have the equipment and the stuff to make the loads you can call your own, and shoot well.
    This site is a great source of info and from time to time I'll be looking for help I'm sure. :)

    HandyRandy here, I'm a new member and got a question about the new DPMS GII HUNTER 308. I have a 30mm 5x20x50 scope to mount on it, medium scope rings work fine on it, but with my eye relieve I can't mount my scope where I need to because it covers up my charging handle. I do not want to purchase new high scope rings. Is there an alternative for a extender on the charging handle or a different handle that will work?

    New to this forum, have been a reloader, hunter, and competitive shooter since the 1960's. Trying to keep up with the changes to our sport and this seems to be the best way.:D

    Hello

    This seems like a great place to get answers to just about any fire arm related question I have as well as maybe passing on some of my own knowledge! I am into all gunstuff, lever-actions to high speed ARs. I love to learn, especially about fire arms so it seems I came to the right place just by scrolling through some of the forums.

    Hello! Found this forum perusing the interwebs in an attempt to find shops/ranges outside of the 20ish mile radius where I conduct my daily goings-on (Missouri). The surprising lack of brazen, fork-tongued discourse 'round here is why...I'm here! As the handle may imply, my general "credo" is to ask, learn and (hopefully) reciprocate the gesture. I was born in 1975.

    greetings all!

    I have been reading this forum for awhile now looking for advice on many different things from reloading to gun reviews. I have started reloading again and come here looking for answers and hints and decided to join so I could contribute my experiences since you guys have been a real help to me.

    Hello, I'm Bob from Apple Valley, CA. I'm a retired software engineer. In my early days I was a High Power competitor and have been a deer hunter for the last 46 years. I also reload but in limited quantities, as suitable for hunting. I have an interest in wildcats although I can't afford 5% of what I would like to fool around with.

    I have been very active in one other gun forum for a number of years and peek in on 3 or 4 others as I look for information. I found some interesting wildcat info here that I hope to pursue.

    Hello From East Texas

    Been on the forum for a while but I've been mostly in the background trying to learn something. The newest long gun in my locker is a Remington 1100 I bought in 1972. I have two handguns that my mother carried in the 1960s and a new Springfield 9MM Xdm 5.25. I was a rabid skeet shooter in the 70s and reloaded 4 gauges. I'm now reloading 38 special, 38 s&w, 9MM, 300 Savage and 30-30 win. I have all the material and equipment to start casting bullets and hope to start that tomorrow. I appreciate the good will shown to new members by some of the old hands and I even can find humor with some of the grumps. Glad I found the link.

    Hi there, found this site while researching a couple of rifles I won at a NWTF banquet a while back. The discussion got pretty lively and I was intrigued. I hunt , fish, camp etc., and call N. California home.
