Oops. I actually registered at TFL in October, but just found this thread.

I enjoy target shooting and hunting. Especially pistol and rifle. I earned a Mechanical Engineer degree from UW-Platteville and enjoy hunting in Wisconsin, but currently live in NC.

Hi. New here. Have never been on an internet forum before but over the years a lot of questions typed in the computer have been answered here. Don't know much about forums so bear with me. Hope to learn some things from some folks. About me...not much, was in the infantry, went overseas, now I just hunt and fish. Not very interesting guy. Thanks.

My name is JC and I like shooting rifles and handguns. I am worried about the impact of the soon to be proposed gun laws by the president's special committee.

Hello,
New to the board. Name is Dan and I live in Newfoundland on the east coast of Canada. My father introduced me to shooting a long time ago. I am interested in most shooting disciplines but my favourite is big and small game hunting.Any way I am looking forward to participating here and am very interested at this time in preserving our gun rights.

Just found this community through a random Google search and figured I would join in

From WV (eastern panhandle part), not the same place as buckwild is being filmed and would love to have them excommunicated or exiled from the state.

Currently only own 3 firearms, a Beretta 92FS, Ruger LC9, and due to recent legal activities... an Armalite ar-15

looking to gain some knowledge <(^^,)>

Newbie from Iowa

Greetings all! I'm a relatively recent gun owner and I joined this forum to get unbiased gun reviews and also to seek out other 2nd Amendment supporters.

I currently own a Remington 870 12 gauge, a .22LR Rifle, and a Saiga .223. Still looking to get the rest of the basics: a pistol (or two) and a high-powered bolt-action rifle.

Greetings from Illinois!

Heya. Joined the forum recently. Appalled at the way things are going regarding our inherent freedoms. Want to teach my kids to learn to love to hunt and shoot. World getting a bit more redunkulous, so bought SA XMD compact 9mm recently, love it. Wife and I took NRA Basic Pistol recently, other classes slated. So: hunting, defense, general preparedness, and - I have always loved to shoot. Lots to learn. Have been reading this site a great deal as we've shopped for handguns, learned much.

Coming back to the fold...

Greetings all. I've been away for quite a while... don't have a good excuse. I felt I should start back here at the beginning if I'm going to continue as a conscientious poster. Good to be back.

Hello gunners...

Greetings. My name is Mike. I live in Kentucky and am a firearms enthusiast. I've always been into weapons in some shape or form. I'm always looking for info on guns as I always seem to come across good deals so I will probably wear you all out on questions and information. Anyways, glad to be here. Thanks.

Hello all! I have little to offer and much to learn, unfortunately. I have always been interested in firearms but my wife has been less than enthusiastic so it's always been something I've had to keep on the backburner. Recently, with the shooting at the Aurora movie theater here in Colorado followed up by the shooting in CT, my wife now sees the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I have been reading up on reloading and would like to get into that as well. I've recently bought a .40 cal handgun and am signed up for a conceal carry class toward getting my carry permit. We live in some very unpredictable times and I want to do what I can to put the odds in my favor that should shtf, I'll be more ready than where I am now.

Hi, My name is Alex, I live in Las Vegas. I think I am a bit older than most posters on this forum. I have been around guns all of my life. My wife and family and I spent most of our lives in Montana. I accumulated a few fire arms.I am partial to a S/W 44 Special for my carry gun,and used a Winchester 338 for most of my big game hunting.Also used everything from a 22 hornet, on up.I have one rifle I am partial to it started life as a 6.5X54 Manlicher. When I got it I sent it to P.O.Akley in Salt Lake to be re-barreled, then had a fancy stock made for it Iron work done by Beasley in Spokane, Trigger from Tinsley, I have mounted a 4 power Balfour Scope.Don't do much hunting now, too damn old, but I used to reload for all of my pistols and riflles.I am still interested in what is coming down the road

I enjoy The Firing Line, and have been a lurker for quite a while.

Hello TFL, I have hung around this forum for a while and gotten lots of usefull information and this forum seems to be the most knowledgeable group of people and seems to have a very dedicated staff to go with it. So i decided to finally make an account here and make my own posts.

I really enjoy going to the range, and learning as much as a can about the world of firearms, my ultimate goal is to make a career out of it somehow, despite everything thats going on.

How's it going, from the Old Dominion, VA.

Nice forum you have here and I have only touched the tip of the iceberg.

I look forward to being a member here and keeping informed in our great 2nd amendment right.

Hello. I feel as if I know many of you already, as I have been a regular reader here for many years. I want to thank you for the resource this forum has provided. Through the advise I have found here, I have become a gun owner, joined the NRA, obtained my CHL, and started a small collection of carefully selected firearms (although some may poo poo my choices). I hope to continue my education under your stewardship, and possibly gain enough experience to contribute meaninfully to the conversation.

Thanks Again,
Kelly
