    Hello WTA!

    I just signed up today. I basically followed JesseL over here from another site where he was more or less forcing me to confront my dream of building my Stevens 200 into a scout rifle.

    I just got out of the army last year and started working for the VA. I like "fun" guns. AKs, Scouts, .22 pistols and stuff like that. I used to enjoy grouping bolt rifles a lot but my vision decided to take a crap so...

    I am really diggin the site so far. Glad to be here,

    Hello WTA,

    Joined up a couple weeks ago and have been lurking for a bit.  Seems like this is a great forum without out all the trolling and general douchebaggery present in most of the other forums I used to visit.  Hope to have a good time and learn a lot here.

    I live in the mountains of western NC with my wife and 3 kids.  I love shooting although I don't get to do as much as I would like to since I am on the road more often than not.

    Looking forward to getting to know you guys.

    Hi all! 

    I saw this forum on my Tapatalk app on the IPad.  This looks like a great forum with lots of good folks to hang out with. 

    I thoroughly enjoy target shooting and hope to try IPSC or some other competition one day.

    Cheers!

    Hey yall!

    Just found this site and had to join,I'm a somewhat new shooter.

    I have shot guns throughout my childhood and a little into my teens then wasn't able too for a handfull of years til my bro got me into it again but this time I have my own.

    I love to plink and Target shoot at the range and as soon as my son is of age to safely fire he will most likely be into it too.

    Don't quite have the arsenal some of you many year shooters have but I plan on expanding.
     
    Right now I have a AR15 .223,stag arms lower,Adams upper with the Adams arms gas piston system,magpul stock,aimpoint red dot and a few other goodies.

    I also have a S&W M&P .40 with trijicon night sights.

    My next will be a .308 bolt action for hunting but don't know what yet.

    Also just picked up a lee loadmaster press for the .223 so that's the current project.

    Just wanted to stop in and intro myself and read all this wonderful site has to offer.

    I blame my brother and my old boss at the machine shop I used to work at.

    My bro is a sorta rookie gun guy,younger and into the tech.

    My old boss on the otherhand is old school and knows his stuff,he has Ben comp shooting for 20years and gunsmiths his own rigs and is a badass in my book.

    Thanks for the welcomes guys,I've been learning allot since discovering this awesome forum.

    Hi All,

    Been lurking awhile, found this board through THR and Larry Correia.  Finally joined to comment on the "Innovations" thread when it veered into planet killing.  Also I like the Uprising zombie threads.

    I just target shoot now, used to compete in pinshooting and IDPA (and hunt a really long time ago).

    See you all around!
