    Hello from MT

    I am new to this forum but not new to "forums" or guns. I live in Northwest Montana and have been shooting in one way or another most of my life. I recently obtained my concealed carry permit and have been spending much more time at the range and educating myself in as many aspects of firearms as I have time for.
    I used to spend lots of my time playing paintball and competing in a number of tournaments both state and national. The local field closed down a few years back and it became much harder to get people together to practice and play. Since that time I decided to really jump into the shooting sports that did not require a team to do so. My current area of focus is pistol shooting as I have been rifle shooting and hunting most of my life but hadnt spent much time around pistols until about 2001.
    I am a 4th grade teacher by trade and love the outdoors. I am hoping to practice and compete in a few pistol matches this spring and summer at a local gun club.
    I actually found this forum while in the process or working a paintball gun sale/trade on a paintball forum. The member I had been workind with gave me a link to 2 guns he had for sale here and ever since I started browsing the forum I was hooked. I am also a member on the firing line.
    Now that the long winded summary of myself is out of the way I would like to say hello to you all and hope to chat or do some trading/sales with you down the road.

    Welcome from Columbia Falls, 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.
