    Hi,

    I'm a family man with a beautiful wife and two young boys. Born in Portland but raised mostly between Oregon and Colorado. Don't have much firearms knowledge or experience, except for plinking some with my friends as a youth. But I am eager to learn.

    Right now I'm happy to see a renaissance of classical American values, especially in regards to freedom and classical liberalism (a la the Founding Fathers). So I want to celebrate the 2nd amendment by acquiring a tidy little collection of arms for defense, sport, hunting. I also want to use firearms for quality time and instruction with my sons, and the valuable life lessons that can be illustrated through the proper use of arms.

    Thanks in advance to those who set up this online community for education and organization.

    Pax

    Hi, thanks for the advice! I think we are going to check one of these out at the Clackamas County facility pretty soon. If you happen to know any good training programs in the Portland area then hit me up! BTW, I'm especially interested in rifle shooting and learning how to hunt.
