    Hi from The Republic

    I'm new. My wife signed up and told me that I should check this out. As always, she's right. I'm really impressed with the diversity and temperment of the posts here.
    I'm an ex-manufacturer of firearms and have about 25 years experience with making and shooting them. The first thing I learned is that there are no experts (present company included). Something new, or just new information, is revealed every day and that's the reason for forums like this. Sharing information keeps us safe, interested, and informed. Hi from Texas.
