Hello from SW Montana.  I joined this group a few days ago and have lived up to my title of "Lurker".  Thanks for having me.  I've already enjoyed quite a few threads, but I am disappointed to find I learned of this group after the banter slowed.

    Yeah, we're not completely dead yet, just mostly dead.

    There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.  Mostly dead is slightly alive.

    I suspect that we may be seeing a resurgence in forum activity given the recent activities of Fecalbook at Twatter....

    Welcome.  Rumors of our demise are somewhat exaggerated.  Besides, the archives here are better than the day by day stuff I've seen elsewhere.   :cool

    Oops! There IS a new member introduction section.

    And I missed it.  :facepalm

    Sorry folks, didn’t mean to sneak in. I found a reference to this place on another forum and came over to take a look. I like what I see.

     And I totally love the fact that you guys have a creative writing section.

     I am updating a story that I wrote on another forum and posting it here. While the people at the original site liked it and were generous with their comments, I was hoping for more writer-centric feedback. Hopefully I can get that here. ( It’s called When The Host Dies )


     I love the huge amount of information that I have been finding on this site. The people seem great, and I enjoy coming here, kicking back and spending some time with like minded people.

    We actually have a member here from Montana.  He hasn't posted for a bit but life gets busy on a ranch.  Maybe he'll drop by and give what passes for the hometown welcome up that way.   ;)

    Hi, all; joined today. Referred by a member of AZGO, with particular reference to creative writing). Been a citizen of AZ since Memorial Day 2016. Former NY-er (Yechhh) and before that NJ (Yechhh), my primary firearms interest is rifles, AR's especially, I have built a few for special purposes (LR and Precision), have been a handloader since the Mid-90's, and belong to (of course) AZGO, and have been a member of SH since its beginning, going on 20 years, where I post under my actual name, Greg Langelius, where my title is Resident Elder Fart. Prior to 2000, I was primarily a handgun competitor, 3-Gun Bullseye, but handgun shooting has never been a natural act for me, and I now concentrate on rifles. Once an NRA Certified instructor, rifle and pistol, I've been out of that for well over a decade. At 74, I'm working on my mellow. Married 50 years this past July, two of our adult Grand kiddos reside with us and we are all shooters top some degree or other.

    I read a lot of SyFy and am mildly interested in trying writing it, someday.

    Hope I can contribute.

     Welcome aboard!

     You seem like a fine addition to the forums. Glad to have you here.

     I'd be happy to take a peek at anything you write. The youth of today could use some influence from their accomplished elders, IMHO. Have at it!

    Also, there's a great resource for beginning writers here:

     Look under 'Writing Related".

    Glad you could join us Greg.   :thumbup1   We're not as high maintenance as that other forum - just kick back and put your feet up and read some of the archived material here.  Lovely way to spend a few hours.   :cool
