    Talking Howdy from sunny SW Florida

    New to the group, fairly new to guns and shooting, but I love it so far. I got my CCW permit not too long ago, so did the wife, and I am learning more about firearms every day. I'm glad I found this fourm and I look forward to chatting with you fine folks.
    Cheers,

    Johnny Rebel

    Generally I shoot at Fowler Firearms, but I'd love to find an out door range. Word is there is one in Naples, but thats a bit of a hike south of me.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Go and see Sean at Coate of Arms. See if he can get you an application for the South West Florida Sportsman Association. They have a nice outdoors range in Southern Charlotte County. They restrict their membership, so you may have to wait for an opening. I belonged until we moved to Citrus County.
