Hello to all the members here. I'm from the Phoenix area and hold a Concealed Weapons Permit for Arizona. I've read some great posts and after reading them decided that this would be the very best place to get some answers and opinions. I have used "ricochet" as my CB handle when I started Long Haul trucking back in 1975 *smile* I hope nobody minds (like ricochet for instance, lol). I do have a question about the AZ Law the gov signed yesterday that say's you cannot have DRY ICE and BULLETS in the same place and I can't find any answers "why"? I will post a new thread or maybe one of the experts could do it also. Anyhow

Current FNG

I'm the FNG from Wisconsin. I'm 45 years old and have been hunting and collecting since I was 12 years old. 23 year military veteran. I may have some questions for the S&W experts out there. Any assistance available would be most appreciated. Good day.

Mr. Newguy

I have often read these posts and go here to get some good reloading data on occcasion. Maybe you guys (or ladies) could help me with this.

If anyone could help, I sure would appreciate it. I have some 9mm125 gr Sierra JHPs and do not have any reccomendations for a powder charge. I do not have the data in my manuals nor can I find it on line. Any Suggestions??

Hello from Prescott, Arizona

Moved down here from Montana, a little over a year ago. The thirteen years I lived in Montana though, I'll miss.... along with all the hunting, fishing, etc.
I'm a professional knifemaker... sixteen years now. Also a gun nut... been hunting since I was nine, and grew up in Texas. Grampa taught me everything... and was a one shot, one kill philosophy, and I guess.... that's why I'm still a single shot rifle, fan.
All of my knives and spurs are handmade by me, along with heat treating and cryo'ing. I have a feeling many of you are not familiar with the custom market.
Looking forward to participating and studying the archives.
I go by Charles.
My website is:
Come visit....

Hello to all

Hello to all. I am brand new here and would like to introduce myself. I am 42 years old, happily married, and currently live in Atlanta, GA. I love God, my wife, my dogs, and my guns……I hate Obama, Rosie O’Donnell, Dianne Feinstein, and “un-convertible” liberals. I am patriotic and love our great county but I am very worried the direction it is going. I know we are free because of the men and women that are serving or who have served in the military, and when I see someone in uniform I always take the time to say “Thank You”. I am a proud member of the NRA and of GCO (Georgia Carry Org). Besides shooting, I enjoy backpacking and preparing for when the SHTF. Although I do have more than one gun, my favorite is my FN PBR .308. I have recently got into reloading and now spend much of my weekends at the range shooting my new loads through a chrono in the never-ending quest to find the most accurate load for my rifle at the fastest it can handle. I hope to find like minded people here that I can ask questions of and hopefully answer some myself.

Hello fellow gun enthusiasts,

I am Dave, 38 years old, I live in NC and have been around firearms most of my life. I am married to my high school sweetheart and love of my life, and have two boys.

I would list what guns I have but I am not comfortable putting my life out here on the internet. I will say that I have a few guns and love to shoot and hunt.

I have been in the military since 1987 in one capacity or another. I am now waiting to retire and am looking at starting a business related to firearms.

Look forward to learning new things in the forums and meeting like minded people.

I'm Brandon. I'm 19 and currently deployed as an Infantryman with the 82d DSTB. I am currently the only person in my Company to score 40/40 on our weapons quals. I've never scored less. Here I have an M4 with ACOG and an M14 which I'm getting fixed up with a new stock, scope mount, and bipod. At home I have an AR-15 from DPMS with an EOTech 553 SOCOM (tan) and a Trijicon TA01NSN ACOG . I also have an old semi-auto winchester .30-06, a Remington .30-30 lever action, a Winchester 12GA and 16GA.
1 M21, 500 rounds of 7.62 Match, and clear skies. It's gonna be a good day.

Hi everyone.

I just joined today. I live in central Oregon. I feel like I need a community of gun nuts in order to get answers to my dumb questions. I just recently started reloading and am shooting alot. Started working on guns. Mostly 1911's. I constantly run into technical problems I need help with. I hope to share as much as I can in return. Jdub

I can not believe how much information is available on this forum. This reminds me of how I felt when the Sears Christmas catalog (wish book) would show up when I was a kid. (60s)

I can't wait to get started.

Thanks for having me.

Hello all

Not sure if I posted an introduction, so I will post a second one...or the first one. Anyways, I'm Goldie Glox. I am a founder of a new site called femme .45. This site is mainly for female shooters new and experienced, but we don't mind the gentlemen stopping by to check us out. Anyways, I just moved to New York and am in the process of getting my permit. Anyone know how long that takes? I hear it takes forever.

Well I hope to have some great disscussions with you all and happy shooting

Another New Guy

Greetings all,

Purchased my first handgun in 15 years earlier this year - Glock 19. Took a CHP course and am waiting on my permit. In the meantime, I've put my wife and daughters through a "girls only" safety course (they are quite the markspersons), joined a local gun club, replaced the stock sights with XS Big Dots and am practicing as much as I can.

Look forward to many years of safe and fun shooting.

Love this site!

Found TFL while searching for information to identify a S&W .38 for a friend. Web page format and discussions had a lot of class. Thought I'd join.

Hi everyone, I was looking for companies and products that do not support the 2nd Ammendment. I found answers here. I will not be using Bic lighters or pens, I will not eat at KFC, nor will I buy from 7-elevens. Thank you
