Hello all, I have been reading for a while. I'm interested in shooting sports as a whole, whether it's firearms, bows, or airsoft. See you around.

New to the forum

Looks like a great forum. Lots of great info. At one time I shot competition (high power). Age was taking its toll on the eyes so I had to quit. My hunting days became fewer and fewer as well. I shot in a pistol match a couple of weeks ago and although I was far from the best shot I was able to put a few in the X. My interest has been renewed and although I'm no longer competitive I can still have fun. My interest is renewed and putting more guns in the safe is in the future.

I am Rob, I hail from Rio Rancho New Mexico. I am married, 3 kids, retired USAF and now working as a power plant inspector. I grew up shooting from an early age. Its something that is ingrained in me and find pure enjoyment in; teaching my kids, shooting, hunting and reloading. Hopefully, I will have something to offer. Till then, I'll kick off my shoes and do some reading. Thanks for having me.

I didn't ever post an introduction, but I'm new here at TFL. I've found so much useful information already, either by reading other's threads or by posting my own.
I'm from the Seattle area in Washington and actually, as of today I've applied for my CPL (so did my wife) and picked up my very first handgun! Took it out to the mountains and put about 150 rounds thru it. We're pretty excited.

I'm 22 years old, almost 23. Just had my 3rd wedding anniversary, and my wife and I have a 18month old (almost). We both love guns, want to add more to our collection, and even get into handloading!

So glad to be here and I'm excited to dive right in!

Hello, new guy here.
I live in Maryland and am a Marine (veteran of the gulf war).
I started going to the range with a couple of buddies and just picked up my first hand gun (S&W 686+).
I have spent a lot of time reading through the posts and have to say this is a great forum.
A lot of good folks with good information to share.

Hi all,

Found this site while researching for a story I was writing.

I'm an OFWG that's over 50, owns guns and a bible, wears denim jeans, owns private property and believes that the words "shall not be infringed" are so easy to understand that one would have to be a career politician in order to be confused by them, which all these related facts means I am pretty much the bane of leftist liberals, centrist socialists, and those whom are republicans in name only (i.e., RINO's).

I look forward to meeting and getting to know other members here.

I have read postings on this forum for awhile and for some reason I was thinking the site was out of business and the postings were old. Shows what I know about the Internet and that I can be a bit obtuse at times
Anyway- glad to be here

Greetings. New member here. I am trying to branch out and join and meet people in more firearms forums. I recently started a little firearms accessories company that will provide jobs and income for some people with special needs. At this point, we are making parts for Kahr pistols but would like to hear about other things folks might like to see produced. The most interesting of our products so far might be the metal followers for Kahr pistols and the G10 grips. Looking forward to meeting folks. You can see our company stuff at

Hello! I'm new to firearms, and I thought I'd begin asking questions before I commit to one firearm over another.

I'm 19 years old, graduated high school last year, and I'm currently in college earning my Associate's Degree in Fire Protection. I spend most of my week working at a volunteer fire department, either on the Engine as a firefighter or Ambulance as an advanced EMT. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to schoolwork or studying.

I've been lurking in the shadows for a while.

Grew up shooting/ hunting. Currently in love with semi autos. Big ak guy, getting more into Ar`s.

Anyway, thanks for adding me to the forum. Logging in was the first time I actually viewed the layout and I like it, pretty similar to the files. I look forward to learning and contributing to this board.
