Back After Several Years...


I posted this introduction on the Ammosmith forum as well as the Cast Boolits forums so members of those communities please excuse the repeated information.

I joined GT several years ago, but dropped out of the firearms world for health reasons. I never got around to getting a Glock last time around, and still do not own one. It is in my wish list. I loaded 357 Magnum rounds for a Ruger GP100 that has sadly passed into another's hands (with the added insult that it was a pre-Houge grip model). As my health has been improving I have decided not only to replace the reloading equipment I sold, but also to cast my own bullets this time. I own only one firearm at present, my first rifle, a Marlin 22 LR bolt action.

As my budget is very tight right now it will be some time before I can acquire everything I need, but I have been reading and researching as well as keeping an eye out for cheap and free lead. Because of my current situation of no equipment or firearms in a reloadable caliber I will not be able to add as much to the forum as I would like for some time, but I will be reading and contributing what I can.

I am a follower of Christ, a husband of a fantastic beautiful woman, a father of three boys and one girl ranging in age from four to thirteen, a graduate of Lincoln Christian College (now University), a libertarian with anarchist tendencies, a semi-avid reader, a smoker of premium cigars (when I can afford them), a fan of any technology that does not suck (read Microsoft), a big fan of Abbott and Costello, The Three Stooges, and old time radio, I have recently become interested in becoming a "prepper", and I am a native of the worst state in the union: Illinoguns. I am currently unemployed and hope to remedy that situation as my health improves.

I blog occasionally at http://highcaliberguns.com. I am getting ready to start a podcast with a buddy of mine at http://thesitterdowners.com (named after a Three Stooges short). You can follow me on Facebook at http://facebook.com/jacksonaaronc and on Twitter as @arrowj. You can email me at jacksonaaronc@gmail.com.

A few of my favorite blog posts are:
The Magic Prayer: http://highcaliberguns.com/2007/05/02/the-magic-prayer/
Why Do We Pray: http://highcaliberguns.com/2008/12/10/why-do-we-pray/
Choosing A Worldview: http://highcaliberguns.com/2009/08/1...g-a-worldview/
Firearms Wish List: http://highcaliberguns.com/2012/08/2...arm-wish-list/
Finding Good Non Cuban Cigars: http://highcaliberguns.com/2008/07/2...-cuban-cigars/

I access these forums using the Tapatalk app (http://www.tapatalk.com/) on my iPad 2 or iPhone 4. I occasionally use my 2008 MacBook Pro that is getting long in the tooth, but still performs admirably.

I am also a member of the Ammosmith.com forum using the same user name so I may duplicate posts from time to time in order to get answers from both communities. I apologize for any extra posts this creates for others that are members of both groups.
