Second time here

I signed up in February but this is my first "real" day on the forum. I work with Gun Casket, LLC ( and figured I'd just pop in and see what the forum is all about. It seems like a great tool for getting quick answers to gun related questions. Look forward to getting to know you all.

A Missouri Newbie Here

I everyone. My real name is Ed. I am older than dirt and have hunted with fire arms most of my life. I also like recreational shooting when I have the time for it. I live on the edge of a national forrest and my wife of 42 years calls me a hermit. I seldom go to town, as I can always have her pick up the seasonings for my deer, rabbit and squirrel. I can sit on my front porch and catch catfish If I get to hankering for fish soup beans and cornbread. So she may be correct about trhe hermit thing

I was actually searching for information to aid me in the disassembly and re-assembly of one of my squirrel guns when I ran into this site. I found it to be not only friendly but very helpful so I joined up. Gereat site here youall.

Hey Y'all!!

Newbie here from western NC! I'm from England originally, and LOVE visiting home, but wow...bless their hearts if they wanna go shoot...

Anyhoo...I work in the airline business, in the past as a pilot, but after getting burned out on the pilot lifestyle of 15 nights a month in a crappy hotel room, I went into training and now work as an instructor for a major airline. My shooting experience has evolved over the years, from my Grandfather in England being a Gamekeeper who let me shoot his shotguns back in the 70s when that could be done without Parliament getting involved, to growing up in NC killing squirrels and Coke bottles with a Ruger 10/22 to now.

Currently my collection includes:

Mossberg 500 18.5" Pistol Grip (for things that go bump in the night)
S&W M&P15 Sport
HK MP5-22 (Brand new this week and absolutely amazing that shooting can be this fun for so little $$$)
HK USP Compact .40 (also for things that go bump in the night)
Walther P99 9mm
Walther PPK/S .380
SiG Mosquito (yeah I know, but it once shot 9 rounds without a FTF/FTE)
Makarov 9mmx18 (bought from a buddy a decade ago for $ buy EVER...I love this gun!)
Rossi .38 2" (cheap, and if popular opinion is believed a POS, but its the first gun I ever bought, and over the past 20 years it hasn't missed a beat)
S&W 65-2 4" .357

So, on to my shooting habits...I live on 11 acres in the country and frequently come home to deer in the field in front of my driveway...whenever I do I reach for the 35mm SLR digital. I completely respect those who shoot for food, but it's not for me until it becomes a survival issue. For now I'm happy striking fear into paper targets 2-3 times a month while learning more about he sport.

So that's me...hi guys! (and girls)

Hi all,
Just signed on a few days ago. I am a black powder shooter. I shoot an original M-1884 Springfield Infantry rifle using period military targets, distances, firing positions, and scoring. I also load the .45 Colt in black powder. I like doing things in the traditional way and am partial to the antique arms. Look forward to hearing from others.

Hey, new guy here. Everytime I do a google search for something gun related I get sent here so I thought I'd sign up.

I was really bummed to read the rules and see that zombie threads were prohibited.

Checking in from Southern California. Never one to collect guns and have only shot a few in 20+ years. However, now it seems the internal hunter in me has surfaced and I now find myself reading all I can get my hands on. Last month I purchased my first gun a Ruger New Vaquero .357 and can't put it down. What a great feeling at the range. I'm taking my time in learing all I can and will looking for a rifle to complement my Ruger.

Hey. My name is seddi. Due to the nature of my work I cannot reveal my real name or my location. It'll be nice to get to know y'all though. I'm a security enforcement officer at one of the largest malls in America. It's not the mall of America, but its no joke either. I put my life on the line every day just as often as police officers if not more. I'm looking to share my knowledge and learn from everyon

Newbie, Don/redlinesrule from NH

Good afternoon,

Don from New Hampshire & it's great to be here! Very interested in learning the different aspects on semi auto carbines as well as hand guns for both protection & taking the family out for some fun. I currently have a Ruger Sporter 10/22 & absolutely love this rifle as it's easy, fun & very cheap to shoot. Yup, that's the only firearm I currently own but am looking to add more. I've always loved the military rifles & have been very interested in the AR15, AK47, SKS, M1, & M1A. Yes, a big jump from a little 10/22 but that's why I'm here, to learn about these guns as well as the advantages & disadvantages of all. Thanks for the read....Don ~

I've greatly enjoyed reading TFL the last few months, and thought it was time to register and say something now and then.
I'm getting back into firearms after being into other hobbies for a while. I'm interested in all aspects of guns, but mainly I've been learning about how to carry concealed.

I'm a police officer from across the pond (Glasgow, Scotland to be more precise ) and I'm here to share my own personal passion for fire-arms.

Hope to make the trip to the US soon to FINALLY get my hands on all the beautiful weapons I can't legally shoot over here!!!

Hello everybody. Im 21, from indiana and i grew up with gun hating parents. First with my mother, then with my father, and back and forth till a few years ago. I dont know if it was their hate for them that made me love guns more but as far back as i can remember i had always loved them. As of now i only own 1 .22 which was given to me by my grandfather. I did have pellet rifles (that i hid from my parents of course) up untill i turned 18 but, they just couldnt cut it. I am planning on adding to my collection i just dont wonna get addicted like i think i might.... 1 .22 just isnt enough!
The only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the title.... They're all the same to me.... Liars in suits!!!
