Greetings! Joined awhile back, but just recently started posting. I'm a federal retiree (ex-Army, ex-Postal Service), and my passion is older and antique firearms. Have been involved in reenacting and "living history" for decades.

I live in the People's Republik of New York. Help...!

After a few years of absence, I am back browsing TFL. I decided to register since there are quite a few discussions related to RKBA that I would like to contribute to.

About me: Northern Virginian. Have a few rifles (AR, AK, a marlin lever action, ruger 10/22, remignton 700) a new Saiga 12 converted shotgun and a few pistols (HK PSK2000, SIG 220, SIG 239 9mm, Khar PM9).

Just interested in keeping up with like minded individual's thoughts on the current state of affairs as they affect gun owners like me.

New guy with a new and old gun.

My name is Josh.

I have always been interested in firearms, and I have always done well at the shooting competitions we had when I was in the Boy Scouts.

Recently, I have started shooting a Savage 24 in .22lr and .410 that I inherited from my mother's father ( I never knew him and her stepfather has always been my papaw). On my way home from college on Friday, I had my first gun buying experience. I came home with a Remington 700 ADL in .30-06. The savage is a sweet heart, but I wanted something with a little more power as I am jumping into the hunting/ firearm thing head first.

We The People

I like it when I get on new sites and see like minded people.

So to all that read, I have been bow hunting for about 6 years and just recently in CO I took down a 6x6 bull for my first Big Game kill, first shot at an Elk. Took me that many years to study the land and get know the herds over 3 mountain peaks to understand their behavior and movement.

Well of course, I also have rifles but I still have not used them on big game, but sure do like shooting at small game when I have the chance.

I was born and still live in CO, so if anyone wants to go shooting or bow hunting, give me holler. I also reload when time allows. I have a family and I am former Army Ranger from 2/75th RGR RGT. So if anyone else on here is a true RGR hit me up. Well folks I hope to read some good posts and interact with some of you. Thank you for your time in setting this all up.

Ruger 10/22
Ithica .22 Lever
M1 Garand
Mosin Nagant 91/30
Ruger Model 1
Bersa Thunder

Hi there,

I'm Landis, and I enjoy quiet walks on the beech, thunderstorms on weekend summer afternoons, and rippling off thirty round magazines from the hip.

Also I obviously enjoy a sense of humor and rational intelligent conversation and look forward to many such with you all.

I like the AK style and AR rifles, 1911 and some of the newer Walther and XD handguns.

Not really a hunter, although my son hunts deer, I love target shooting and plinking.

Greeting TFLers, I recently started shooting again after a long hiatus. First forum I've ever joined, glad I did - many posts are helpful and informative! I have a Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm Federal (glorified paperweight) that I'm thinking of selling because i can't find the elusive cartridges - anyone know a good ammo smith? Thanks for allowing me to join this great site...

I have lived in Danville, IL. for about 4 yrs. Moved here with my wife to be close to the grandkids. I'm retired from the Maytag co after 31 years as a tool & die maker. I shoot a 4" model 29 and a 5" model 625. I reload both the 44 Mag and 45 Auto Rim. I'm just getting back into reloading after 10 years just shoot factory loads.

casual owner

i don't shoot but i own a few handguns so i am basically a casual owner I guess. i don't really know much in depth about weapons so this might be a good place to learn. I was in USMC so I am able to shoot properly just have not done much of it.

Howdy from Utah!

Hi All,
I'm just another every day American, out to learn a bit every day & add a little value on the way through. I'm a working chimney sweep, and a dealer for HC3R high capacity magazines for 10/22s. I wanted to buy a couple & couldn't find any, so I got in touch with the owner and got a dealership- now I have a tiger by the tail... Top quality and function; message me if you're curious.

Video review here:

Also enjoy stirring the pot a bit...
The Second Amendment means what serious people with guns say it means!

I too have been a lurker for a good while. I figured it was time to join with everything going on in this country. At least before gun forums are banned

Thanks for the forums, I've learned a lot from trolling the pages. I'm concerned about my country and it's direction. Grew up in eastern Oklahoma, have always had guns around, never thought or worried about it. Now, guns still aren't the issue, control is the issue. What have Americans done so wrong that we need to be controlled? We built the greatest nation on earth, liberated more people and have provided more hope than any nation on earth. Still believe it, still want it for my kids. Still willing to fight for it.

Hi from Tennessee

Hi, I'm another Tennessee Hick.
I'm from Clarksville,TN. I love deer hunting but I am disabled and due to arthritis, I can no longer hunt unless it happens to be a warm day. Cold weather is painfull.
I collect knives and accumulate guns. I love to shoot. I started hunting and shooting when I was 12. I will be 65 in a little over a month.
I am here mostly because I found information here that I have not been able to find any where else. Thank you!

Hi everybody. So good to be here! I'm Jim Lee. Been shooting a little over 50 years. I was a gunsmith with the old Mashburn Arms Co. in Oklahoma City 10 years and Southwest Shooter Supply 4 years. Haven't been a practicing gunsmith since the early 90's, but have been teaching it at the Canadian Valley Technology Center in El Reno, OK for 25 years. Favorite handgun is the old mod. Ruger single action. Have 9 and am always in the market to buy or trade for more any time the deal is right. Worked my way through college as a "gunfighter" at Frontier City, USA in OKC. Have an M1, an M1A, and a Mini-14 marked OHP on the receiver, but will always prefer old classics be they, Colt, Winchester, Mauser, Springfield, or antiquish stuff like that. Great forum.
