Greetings all, As far as a greeting I would favor introducing myself out around a fire sipping some good bourbon. I love the northwest, born and raised in the portland area, and man has it changed over the years. Although I do hunt, I really enjoy getting out more than anything. Most of my hunting is for birds and the portland gun club is my favorite clay shooting spot. I have recently found myself wanting to add to my collection of firearms and have been on Northwest firearms regularly. I really enjoy the site and forum contributions. see you around.
