    Talking From South Alabama

    I am 55 and retired USN (airdale)...I now work driving a fuel truck refueling A/C.
    I have loved guns all my life but just recently got involved more into them...
    I plan on doing my own reloading soon, I have been reading numerous books on the subject...As soon as I get moved and settled into our new house I plan on starting...

    Welcome Freddie

    The best way to get started being more involved with guns is to jump right on in here on this forum.

    We'll love hearing from you and...everybody will treat you right.

    Thanks for registering.

    Freddie, welcome from West Central Alabama, i.e. Marion. You fit right into my age group. I turned 58 in January. Always glad to have another forum member for the same state.

    There is a gun show in Montgomery tomorrow. If you are planning to be there send me a PM and we can get together and compare notes.
