I stumbled across this forum a couple of days ago. Glad I did! I hope to learn as much as possible and contribute what I can. I've been shooting for about 25 years or so but there's a lot of room for improvement. That's where you guys come in. Thanks for allowing me to join you!

Good afternoon. I'm Woody55, and I live in East Texas.

When asked what I spend most of my firearms related time doing, my response is talking about them with others with similar interests. I guess that's what a hobby is all about.

Hi, my name is Gary and I'm an armsaholic. I was taught to shoot beginning age 5, shot my first 1911 at age 6, got my first 20 gauge at 10, and it kinda snow-balled after that. Just got back into reloading (mostly handgun) and am literally having a blast. Spend most of my shooting time with 1911, Daniel Defense M4V3, M&P 40c with 357 Sig and 9mm barrels, and a dream-to-shoot 6" S&W Model 624 44 Special.

Good afternoon guys and gals from rainy North Florida! I have been hunting since about 14 years old, I am currently 31, and have somewhat recently began collecting guns, maybe the last 2 years or so. My interest is varied, but as I seem to have an affinity toward the 30's to 50's era in Automobiles, I have taken a similar liking in guns. My current favorite is either my Winchester 1942 .30 Carbine or Hex receiver Mosin Nagant 91-30. I have a few more practical rifles and pistols, but I truly enjoy these 2. Stay safe.

Hi from Westminster, Maryland (better know by it's subjects as the Peoples Republic of Maryland). I have to admit I have belonged to this forum for about 4 years and never really been active instead leaning more to the gun specific forums. This is truly a forum that encompasses a lot of different gun interests.
I am going to try harder to carry my weight here.

Thanks for all the great info I've already taken up from you guys in the years past. Hopefully I can contribute something from now on.

Hey people

Im a gun enthusiast. I like the way firearms operate the way the firing pin hits the primer the spent shell is ejected and a new cartridge is put in the tube. Guns are so unique to me not only in one way but also they are so complex and there is a lot of unknown stuff going on phenomenas like when a bullet is whizzing through the air. I like to analyze whats going on and dissect key questions for myself. By joining here to listen to everyones opinion on all ideas on guns which does matter to me a whole lot. Im sure ill have fun too

I am a new member today

Hi everyone. I follow Rob Pincus on FB and found you through a link he gave there today. I am a 60+ year old woman and I have loved guns and shooting from the time I met my husband 48 yeas ago-his family were avid hunters and he became a great trap shooter in his early years. I am a 20 gauge shotgun gal-and have a Remington 870 pump and a Winchester 20 gauge pump which I have had for over 30 years-both youth models that fit me like they were custom made for me. I have shot many handguns but around the farm and for home defense I have my 20's always ready. With the times what they are and because my husband is disabled and on strong pain meds I have decided it is time for me to CC a pistol for self defense. As of January of 2012 I am forced to go into the pharmacy and show my ID to pick up his medication. Now it doesn't take a fool to know that showing your ID means you are purchasing a controlled substance. So now any criminal types hanging around know that I am picking up controlled substance meds and going to the parking lot and getting into my vehicle alone. I am now in the midst of instruction for CC and I am learning EVERYTHING that I can about revolvers and pistols. I have an SP101 with a 2.25 inch barrel that I am very comfortable shooting and have a Ruger SR9c on the way. I have determined that I will NEVER be forced into a vehicle-including my own. I just will not-I would rather die fighting it out with a criminal and die trying-than to end up like Channon Christian. Having a weapon will at least give me an even chance ;-) I am looking forward to learning good things here!
