Howdy!

A yahoo search led me to this site and it seemed to have some pretty knowledgeable people on it, so I signed up.

My main interest is in reloading.

I got started reloading when my father gave me a Universal M1 Carbine as a teenager. Since the M1 Carbine cartridge was classified as a pistol round, I couldn't buy ammunition for it. But, strangely enough, I didn't have to be 21 to buy the reloading components to make ammunition.

As of July, I will have been reloading for 40 years. I don't assemble a lot of ammunition so I still use the RCBS Reloader Special press that I started with and go slowly.

Thank you. It is nice to be here.

Hi, I've been reading TFL for a little while now and have decided to create a login. As a gun owner, I feel it is my responsibility to understand something about what I own and TFL has helped me to learn. I thank all of you for that.

Howdy All!

Just joined last week. I am mainly a handgunner, but recently got addicted to ARs.

I am a retired AF Pilot, currently working as a contractor at Scott AFB.

Great forum!

Retired Navy

Morning,

Retired Navy and shooter from before I can remember.

Currently came into possession of a 1960 NMA replica 1860 .44 blackpowder pistol. You know the one, Centaure on the frame, Naval sailing ship scene on the cylinder.

Serial # 2937.

Have no idea what the market will pay for this thing. Very Good Condition, with original box and bullet mold.

Been to NMA.ORG and sent an e mail with pictures months ago with no reply. Looks like their website is OOC.

Well, not sure where to ask this question so I put it here!

Thank you and glad to be a member!

New Member here, but not new to guns. I got my first gun when I was 12, a used 410. Have had and shot many guns of all kinds over the years. Especially when I was in the Army. But my favorite gun is the revolver.

Hello everyone, i am kind of new to rifles and shotguns . Althoungh i have done a lot of reading. I learned how to shoot in the united states marine corp in 1980. I have been working in law enforcement for the last 14 years. I started getting into shooting as a hobby. I have a few weapons already. I am trying to get into long distance shooting. The furthest i have shot was 500 yards with iron sights in the marines. I have learned that there is a lot of information in these forums. Hoping to learn from other experienced shooters.

Hello TFL, its good to be here. This has been my go to place for gun info since 2014 but never registered until now. I am fascinated by firearms and have been ever since I was about 5 yrs old shooting pop cans with my brand new daisy 88th anniversary pellet/bb gun. Ruger 10/22 after that, of course, and so on. I'm obsessed with guns, I know this because my Wife says so.

Just wanted to drop in here and share some information. Father of Three wonderful adult children and have worked in social services for 27 years. I've lived in several good hunting states over the years. I am a kayak fishing fanatic, dove and turkey hunting. Bowhunted/muzzleloaded for 16 years and harvested lots of meat. I also enjoy riding motorcycles and visiting with my grandbaby. Look forward to some good discussions on fish and game related!!

I've just started with this hobby. So far I've bought 2 357 revolvers a Ruger GP 100 and a Taurus 605 snub. Next up is a 9mm which I will get next week. They're going to get to know me at my local range for sure.

Hello TFL!!!

I am blown away by the wealth of knowledge in this forum. Very excited to absorb knowledge from the good ol' boys & gals. I am from the northwest mountains of Maine and have been shooting since I can remember. I have in the past few years gotten into the long range game and absolutely love it. Although I don't have the latest and greatest I feel I can still do pretty well. Also take advantage of what this area has to provide as far as hunting and fishing. Stay safe and shoot straight!!!!

Daniel
