Hello TFL

I am from South-East Arkansas, gun nut, try to learn everything I can about guns and shooting. If it fires I'll shoot it.

Hi and happy new year!

Hi everyone! I've been reading up the threads on TFL for a while, and finally decided to take the plunge and sign up.

I'm from possibly one of the worst countries in the world for gun enthusiasts -- the safe but gun-prohibited island of Singapore. Very few people even want to discuss shooting (despite conscription meaning most people do know their rifles).

Outside of the military and police there are no publicly accessible ranges save for a 10-metre air rifle one, and a highly restricted and expensive-to-join gun club whose range has been shuttered for several years. I briefly got a taste of the shooting I love during a US trip in 2015, but unfortunately there wasn't the time or money to really get better.

That said, I'm joining to keep learning, make friends and eventually prep for a longer return trip in the coming years. My interests are in rifles (AR-type and precision) and defensive handgun use.

Meanwhile, let me know if you ever swing by here. It's been too long since I chatted with a fellow firearms enthusiast.

Have a safe and happy new year!

Just got approved, thank you Mods. Thought I had an account here but couldn't resurrect it so had to start from scratch.

Anyway glad to be here.

Howdy. I finally joined a few days ago. I’ve randomly read threads from the forum when doing google searches over the years and figured why not finally get more involved?
On the personal side of things I’ve been shooting for about 14 years - started with 4 position small bore competition in high school and went to the nationals at Camp Perry. I’m interested in a variety of areas from antique arms (not to say I necessarily know that much about them) to competition to just aiming at what’s there with whatever I have on hand. I live in Connecticut with my lovely wife.
On a business related note I got going on a life goal of trying to make money doing what I love so I ‘never have to work’ again. That took the form of making steel targets. I’m a mechanical engineer by degree and love shooting so my goal is to design cool/useful steel targets you’ve never seen the likes of anywhere else. I’ve currently got some good old gongs up on my website and am working on introducing the first really new thing in the next few months.
Red Hound targets.
Shiny new steel targets that no one else has anything like. We’ve got some cool ideas we’re working on introducing so keep a look out.

Noob here. Just purchased my first gun (M&P 9mm 2.0)... followed by my second (Ruger SR22). Been to the range once so far and have enjoyed it. Looking forward to doing more plinking.

New here, but have been shooting since I was a little kid. Taking the plunge into reloading and dipping a toe into precision rifle brought me here. A few years military and LE, now I'm a balding middle aged guy who moves like the guys I made fun of when I was 20.

Paybacks a bitch and her stripper name is Karma. Ugh!

Hello all. I am Grant from TN. Been shooting for over 40 years reloading over 30. Spent a lot of years in the shooting industry. With all that I said it has only proved to me how little I know. Looking forward to making some new friends and maybe running up on some old ones.

Hello TFL,
New to forums in general and am more of a recreational shooter who enjoys hunting. I am from Oregon and try to hunt as many types of game as I can throughout the year. Hopefully I can help as much as recieve help on here in the future.
