I've been reading this board for a couple months. There is a lot of knowledge and experience here. I've really enjoyed it. It doesn't seem like i have much to contribute but certainly will if i can. I'm a 50+ yr old engineer, married with several children, that lives south of Portland. I've only shot .22 and pellet guns. However, the way things seem to be going in our great country, maybe i need to step it up a little?
