    Hello. Glad to be here. I've been a steady gun owner for about 10 years but have prior gun ownership experience. Closing on on 55 and hope to have a lot more years to spend at the range, LOL. Looking forward to some engaging conversations and insight.

    Recently became the proud papa of a lower end 1911 that, so far, shoots like a dream. Rock Island GI series I picked up at Rural King for about $400. Still in the "break-in period with 275 rounds through it with no problems attributable to the gun. (Note - Tulammo does NOT work well with that gun and almost doesn't work at all in a Taurus Spectrum).

    My very first gun was a Stevens single shot 20 gauge, and the 2nd was a .22 bolt action rifle that was probably a Ruger. Unfortunately, I don't remember. Got in a bind back in the day and had to pawn them.

    Anyway, looking forward to some great info from people far more knowledgeable than I.

    Welcome. I'm new here myself but so far so good. Everybody's been friendly and I've already learned a thing or two.

    Welcome aboard, there are lots of knowledgeable and experienced folks here.
