    Its not uncommon for me to go thru around 3000 rounds per week and sometimes less depending on the time of the year.

    Hello, all. New here. Old-time gunnie fast approaching the Big Eight-Oh mark. Been at it since a kid. Have and tote Colts, Smiths, Rugers, Kimbers, Kahrs, etc. Have shot a lot of PPC in Olden Times. Work on Smiths and Rugers as a dedicated amateur. Currently EDCing a bobbed Ruger stainless Speed-Six in .357. Live on a working ranch with a GSP that's smarter than I am. Hope to make some friends here and maybe even make a contribution from time to time.

    (Hope I'm doing this right. Couldn't find a NEW POST button so used the REPLY, altho I'm not replying to anything. Also "Listen to the letters" doesn't seem to work.)

    PS... Why am I a "Lurker"? I've registered and all that....)
