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.
