    New to DC.com from Michigan

    I have been lurking around this website for some time, finally decided to join. I appears that there is lots of good information and more importantly lots of genuine people with good values.
    About myself:

    30 year old, HVAC tech/Engineer who lives in the upper peninsula of the great state of Michigan.
    I grew up around guns and the proper handling / rules for operation.
    I have my CPL and carry daily.

    My personal collection may have some of the following (or may not)

    1950 Russian SKS
    1956 Factory 26 Sino-Soviet SKS
    Factory 26 Chinese SKS
    1967 Finger groove 10/22
    modern scoped 10/22
    Scoped Takedown tactical 10/22
    Hex Mosin Nagant
    Round Mosin Nagant
    Winchester 12 ga SXP Defender
    Springfield Armory 1911 Loaded .45
    Springfield Armory XDM .45 3.8 Compact
    Springfield Armory XDS .45 Bitone
    Smith & Wesson 22-A1 Walnut Grips, Red Dot
    1996 Colt Anaconda .44 Mag (Realtree)

    Maybe some others

    Plenty of Ammo to feed everyone... Before the Accident

    Love the outdoors; hiking, camping, fishing, backpacking, ATVs & Jeeps. I treat people the way I would want to be treated, and will give almost anyone one chance. Don't tread on me.

    Now you know what we might have in common. I'm sure I'll meet all of you shortly.

    Pleased to be here!

    Hi JeepCreeper! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. That's an impressive collection you have there! Glad to hear you have your CPL and have decided to protect yourself and your loved ones.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Be very careful when out boating on Lake Michigan, I understand boating accidents have claimed numerous firearms.

    Welcome from SC. You are right, the UP is beautiful, especially when the bridge freezes over.

    Welcome to the forum. You sound like you will be right at home here. It's a good place!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    Welcome from Texas. I really like the diversity of your collection. The one really good thing about being old is that I can finally afford to buy all the guns I want and I can come here to talk about them.
