    Greetings Northwest Firearms Forum. My name is J Smith. I was born and raised in Washington State. My childhood was spent in Whatcom County. I've always had an interest in firearms from as early as I can remember. I started shooting 22s as a pre-adolescent under the close supervision of my father or older brothers. Back then it was easy to find a gravel pit to spend an afternoon plinking. Unfortunately those private/public shooting areas seem to have dried up.

    I now reside in Monroe Washington. I work in the insurance industry as an Fraud Investigator. Work keeps me pretty busy, so there isn't much downtime. When I do have downtime my favorite pastime is shooting. One of my biggest problems is that it takes close to an hour (considering traffic) to travel to any shooting ranges in my area (Bellevue, Everett, or Arlington). And let's be honest, shooting long guns at 25 yards is only "ok". (If there are any other members in the Monroe area I would love to hear about near by public/private land that is open for shooting).

    I found this forum using a simple Google search. I read the mission statement and was immediately on board 100%. I like the idea that this is a regional forum that will discuss regional issues. As firearm owners we all know the Pacific Northwest is under extreme pressure from anti-Second Amendment countrymen. I am all about organizing and making sure my voice is heard in the political arena. There have been many instances while voting ( at the local area) that the candidate in question doesn't really have a known stance on the Second Amendment. It will be nice to have a sounding board during those elections. I'm a lifetime NRA member and I just joined the Washington Arms Collectors this year.

    I have high-hope's that this forum will be a great source of information, organization and comradery.

    Welcome from the great State of Jefferson.

    Let me know if you ever get down to Southern Oregon and I'll introduce you to the Josephine County Sportsman's association range. It's one of the nicest ranges in the West and you'd be able to shoot some real distances.
    ...and I'll buy the burgers after.

    So, next thing we'll know you'll change your name to a symbol like the cadaver formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince!
