    Hello from the Live Free or Die State

    Hi All-

    My name is John, checking in from NH, where I live, work and play with my wife, dogs and various farm animals. I am an avid hunter/fisher and dedicated CCW'er.

    My other interests include Aviation (I am a private pilot), farming, logging and anything else outdoors.

    As far as firearms are concerned, I am interested in everything from antiques, odd chamberings, wildcats, Black Powder, handloading, bullet casting, handgunning to mouse/vest/pocket guns. I reload for ever caliber I shoot, (save for the rimfires) and cast for almost all of my handgun calibers.

    I am by no means an expert, but have been shooting my whole life and hope to help and learn with everyone here.

    Welcome from another Granite Stater!!!!
    Just east of Concord here......
    Started flying lessons many years ago..I was told to pay for ALL lessons up front; that way, I'd be (financially, anyway...) committed to finish the (then) 40 hours....Didn't listen, paid per lesson......Result:
    4.5 hours total....never finished!
    Glad to say I've got more than 40 hrs. on the range......!
    Again...Welcome aboard!!
