Howdy y'all, Was invited over here by 2 people in one day and after looking at the member list I signed up right away. Wanted to type out a great intro but those that don't know me already will soon enough - I'm a bit opinionated and like to share those thoughts lol. Seriously though, I'm happy to be here and will take some time easing into it. Almost hitting the big 40 so I've been shooting for 36 years now. Learned on a Ruger standard .22 and S&W 39-2 9mm - I still have both of those guns after my grandfather who taught me passed away. Im in the SW WA area and have lived here since about 12. Member of a decent range and have a lot of boondocks spots to shoot at but as always I don't get out to shoot as much as I'd like, but plenty enough to stay in practice. Long time Boyscout and did a ton of survival oriented trips in my teens so of course 'Be Prepared' is in my blood so I'm a natural over packer for any occasion. Always strive to keep the house over stocked; sometimes are better then others but I always have the basics covered. I'm a jack of just about every trade and a master of a few so I am mostly self reliant. Thanks for having me!
