Hello, I am a 40 year old female. I shot my first hangun at 28 years old. My former fiance, a Marine Sharpshooter, started me in the Tucson, AZ desert with a Ruger45. It scared the heck out of me and I stayed away. In Louisville, KY I puchased a .357 titanium lite 2 1/4' barrel and my love affair began.

I am back in NY now and am waiting for my Sportsman's carry.

I have found that being a gun owner can transcend anything...race, color, credd, religion or lack of religion. I have a passion for target shooting and look forward to being a part of this forum.
Warmest regards,

Sig Somers

Canadian Gal looking for info not to lose a part of my husbands heritage

I am a mother of four trying to find out if my husband can get his grandfathers handgun back since he passed away. I don't know the age of the gun and I'm from Canada and we have restricted/prohibited guns here and the handgun in question is just that. If anyone could read my post in the general discussion and help me it would be greatly appreciated I don't know much about it and the Internet is not on my side.

New member saying hello

My wife and I both travel to the range in Kent WA at least 3 times per month. My wife has a S&W .380 BodyGuard and a Sig 2022 9mm, I have a Taurus .40 and a .38 5 shot. We have both enjoyed shooting for a time now and really enjoyed a class we took at a range not named in Bellevue WA. Unfortuneatly it seems a little competition was all it took for one enterprise to evict another(my opinion the better one). All this to say we await a resolution and until then will take our business matter how nice the facility is.. Anyway, it's a pleasure to a part of this forum.

Hello, My name is Doug. I just found this site last night after doing some looking for some information on a 7X57 my brother just gave my son. I used to reload many a day ago and am going to get back into it. Looks like a very good site and will be spending some time on here tryin to get to know the site. Look foward to gaining some knowledge and getting my boys into the sport.

NY Shooter Here

Hello everyone.
Figured I'd finally introduce myself after several months of lurking around the site. My name is Jon, happily married and a father of 2 girls, residing in the unfriendly state of NY. If it could be any worse I'm on Long Island, one of the most difficult places to obtain any type of pistol permit, however I was able to overcome that hurdle. I'm an avid range shooter (as much as the wife allows), I do manage to get out at least twice a month at a minimum. Enough about me, I feel i have another post to put up as I have a new addition to the family, a 1911. I'm also lurking around researching reloading, which I am really interested in. I've seen a wealth of knowledge from everyone on this site, and I thank you all for what I have received and will gain. Learning is a never-ending process.

I have been lurking here for a long time and finally decided to post. I am a local pilot out of Paine Field and I am getting into shooting. My friends and I get out and shoot every one in a while, but I am starting to take training classes in the area. A girl has to know how to protect herself

Hello...The Name be Pat aka 2swift4u.

I have questions about a new to me Rifle and will be looking around for answers to my questions using your search feature But I have found that using the search feature can be a daunting task on some forums.

Is it frowned upon to start asking questions right out of the gate here?

Hey there! I'm a 32-year-old former Marine machine gunner. I haven't been shooting as much as I used to but that's going to change soon. I'm moving to Washington State and I hope to get a job at a gun shop/range.
