We recently moved to Oregon and I have been overwhelmed by the opportunities for outdoor activities. I have been "fooling around" with guns since I was a a teenager. When folks ask "What kind of guns do you like?" I say "I like guns with blue steel and walnut. If they're made out of plastic I don't know a thing about them." To me a lower is the denture on the bottom of the jaw, a quad rail is 4 guys watching a poker game, and if they say it's stripped, well, I won't go there! Looking forward to some interesting posts.
