I've only been a member since April, so I'm still a newbie to many. I'm 61 and started hunting when I was 12. Been hunting and shooting, recreationally ever since. You do the math. I have quite an assortment of firearms, some old, some new. Bottom line is I'm a shooter. That out of the way, here's my list. #1 the info from armourer's, competion shooters, and just plain firearms people who know more than me, is outstanding. #2 the humor. I've read posts that had me laughing in tears. #3, and this is my favorite. When a post of which caliber is the best for self defense comes up, someone, and the name escapes me, most always posts " we're not gonna do this again are we?" I love it! Happy Shooting, First shot.
