I just joined.

About one year ago, I decided that I needed to be armed and ready.

Friend of mine, ex-army got me started shooting.

So far, I have purchased and own Ruger P90 .45, Ruger LCRx .38 revolver, Smith & Wesson 686P .357 magnum, and my concealed carry is a Glock 43 9MM.

And I need more.

Hello everyone!

Just checking in.

I am just getting into shooting, until this morning I hadn't shot anything in 20+ years, and my accuracy shows it.

Looking forward to learning as I go.

So far I've got an SW9VE and a Ruger LCP in .380

I'm going outside to stand, if anyone asks; tell them I'm OUTSTANDING

Just wanted to say that I look forward to learning more, and teaching some, about our world of shooting. I'll thank you in advance for all I'll learn from everyone. I've been shooting for 5+ decades and there's always something new and fun to enjoy in this sport. My best to you !

Hello from CO,
I am an east cost (NY) transplant loving life in Colorado. Growing up I shot shotguns, skeet sporting clays etc. Rifles and pistols are illegal in NYC Moved to CO 4 years ago. As soon as I got my CO drivers License I went to the gun shop and picked up an AR-15. Have not managed to stop since then!

Long range shooting is my most recent passion. I joined a rifle club out in the middle of nowhere Eastern CO in May of this year. There we have a 1000 yard range. Steel 20" to 4" in size, every 100 yards from 400-1000. My shooting buddy and I head out there every weekend and work on our skills. We both shoot 6.5 Creedmoor. My LR gun is a Savage 10, his is a Ruger Precision Rifle. Great sport, really enjoy long range shooting. Just wish the ammo was not so $$$. I have no space to reload so stuck shooting factory.

Currently I have:
1-My long range 6.5 Creedmoor:
Savage 10 in XLR Chassis with XTR II 4-20x50 scope

2) AR-15 Lower with PRS stock and SSA-E trigger I run with:
- 20" 6.5 Grendel 20' Custom Upper
- 18" 223 Wylde PSA Upper

3) AR-15, 223 wylde, 16" barrel, lightweight custom build. MRO Red dot.

4) Canik TP9SF (P999mm pistol w/ vortex Viper red dot.

New member here from Salt Lake. I am a firearms coach and instructor, CFP instructor and enthusiast.

Lately I have started back into precision rifle stuff, and by extension, handloading. It is mostly these that bring me back into the forum world as I am a novice in both.

Hey all,

So this site kept coming up whenever I was searching the web for info and after finding several really great threads relevant to my interests, I decided I should join up.

I like guns and shooting them and time in the woods and reloading among other interests.

Glad to be here.

New here, howdy. from Lodi, WI. Moved here a year ago from Indianapolis. Not much opportunity to shoot in Indy unless I go to the East side and wait to be shot at first. But here, I not only shoot out my backdoor at targets put up on multiple trees, I hunt deer and turkey out my backdoor. So I chose a Savage 93 in .22mag for foxes and coyotes out of shotgun range. A ruger 10/22 for what I catch in my traps, Mossberg 500 12ga for deer, foxes, and clays. A glock 22 to carry, (lifetime CC permit). and a Savage 11/111 Trophy Hunter in .308 for deer and long range shooting. Have 17 chickens and 3 daughters and 8 acres to keep safe. I will be on here mainly for reload info for the .308 and long range advice. And shopping for a compact .45.

Hey, new member here. My wife and I just took our CPL classes in Michigan, and now both own handguns, so I'm in research mode and this site seems to have a lot of good info. Thanks for the add!

New guy So Cal via England

My names Chris, though everyone calls me Top.
I'm 37, married with 2 kids and live in Southern California.

I should start with the fact I'm english.. i didn't grow up around guns, just knives... recently with the kids growing older my wife and i decided to add some home protection ( much to the delight of my redneck friend who also spoke very highly of this forum)

We currently own a maverick 88 and will be adding a handgun before christmas.
I have to say the amount of information on this website is amazing and has been a big eye opener for me.
Thank you in advance and sorry for any stupid questions.

Welcome to the forum. What kind of handgun you decided to get for home protection? Personally I find the heavy all metal frame pistols in large cal such as .40 or.45 perfect for home defense (especially if you live in a subdivision) due to non over penetration.

Hi I'm a new to the firing line . I love lever actions and have several. But have a question on my latest purchase this week. New Rossi stainless with blued loading gate spring

Just bought a new Rossi r92 16in. Stainless 38/357 when it came it was from the factory in a plastic bag like all my other (3) Rossi s came but had a sticky preservative on it and the loading gate spring is blued not stainless . All the pictures I saw before I purchased it showed all stainless except the sights. My other Rossi are blued. Any ideas? Thx

Picture attached
