Greetings everyone, Austin here and I just signed up earlier today after a heavy week of reading! Very well put together site, highly organized with very relevant (sub) topics and banter. I wouldn't say I'm an "avid" shooter (no competition) but I very much do enjoy the times that I get to go out and let the benjamins drop to the ground. I've 2 young boys that I am just now starting to introduce to basics/handling to and look forward to their hopeful desire, if that is their choice, familiarize themselves with firearms. I am a former marine and current VetsWork Americorps Intern working with the Mt. Hood National Forest for 2015. I've been in contact with a number of LEO's and Recreation folks on the Hood and am hoping to help make a bit of a difference in our forests. I've got a lot of reading to do on this site as it looks like there have been some great strides already taken at some of the local "pits" and such in and around the west side of the Forest. For those of you involved, perhaps I'll be reaching out soon - I've yet to find out who those contacts are. I've been working on the Eastern side of the forest as of late and will be coming back to the West side sometime in July and picking up on some proposed recreational shooting projects (and clean ups!) there after. Glad I was turned on to this site and look forward to meeting some of you!
