    I retired last year and decided to get back into shooting. I'm still looking and haven't decided what direction to take, i.e. sporting (target) or defense, etc. I've ruled out hunting because of a physical handicap that would prevent me from doing it right. After spending my youth working in the woods I'm not much into getting a permit, driving up and pulling the trigger. However, if any handicapped hunters out there want to educate me, please do!

    I look forward to reading this forum. There's not enough information about the PNW and shooting.

    By the way, I'm an endangered species: A liberal gun enthusiast!

    Thanks, Fredball. I seek all opinions, never take offense. As most here I'm all about the guns, retired mechanical engineer and lover of things that go bang and yet stay functional.

    Welcome. Makes perfect sense a mechanical engineer would have an appreciation of firearms. So many ways of doing essentially the same thing, sending a projectile down range. Just some designs do it so much better or look better doing it than others!

    As far as Liberal...if you mean in the classical sense...as more of "Live and let live" - I'm sure you will do just fine. After all....one with such a healthy attitude would be a true defender of freedom. Yes?

    Hopefully not the modern faux-Liberal statist, socialist, distribution-ist, nanny types. If you are....welcome anyways. :rolleyes:

    I was raised quite conservative. In my middle age I've become more of a Libertarian. Still hold to my values. I haven't turned my back on them. Just don't feel the need to ram them down others throats and will not tolerate others doing so to me. I'm secure enough in what I believe that I can handle others not agreeing with me. Don't tread on me, I won't tread on you.

    Peace & Freedom to you.

    Thanks for the words, Just1. Yep. live and let live sums it up. Mostly I just mentioned it so folks might see that all "liberals" aren't gun haters just as I try to communicate on social websites that all gun owners aren't school shooters, I try to witness by example, not by shouting.

    Regards.
