Hey all, I *just* found this website. Seems like a good place to me, so I figured I would sign up. Naturally, I have an interest in firearms, otherwise there would be no point to joining a forum dedicated to boom sticks. I have owned guns for several years, and have been shooting for many years, though way more frequently in the past three. I have a bias towards military surplus (I like old bolt guns), or military like firearms. C&R license is an under-promoted thing it seems. I used to have many more firearms, but a recent burglary forced me to sell off some to replace a defensive pistol that walked away on me. We have since moved to a safer neighborhood, and have taken greater security measures with all things valuable though. Lesson learned. Honestly the place we (girlfriend and I) were living in took a major nosedive over the past 9 months or so; it wasn't all that bad when I first moved in with her there. In short, like many enthusiasts... I am always trying to grow the collection. Current pride pieces are a RIA 1911 tactical, a dual date MO marked Mosin Nagant M91/30 (1934/51), and a 1948 Swiss K31 (Scmidt-Rubin). Though I am happy with all my firearms, I just don't feel the need to list them all on an online forum. I am also into reloading, though this is a new aspect for me. I have only made about 700 rounds total, and I am still fine tuning the technique if bullet seating depth and COAL. Recently started loading cast bullets, and am a little surprised at how much smoke the bullet lube creates. Otherwise it's a lot of fun, though using a small single stage press it does take some time. Would one day want to upgrade to a progressive/turret... but need room for that first. I have other hobbies as well of course, some less expensive than others, but all of them "money sinks." I collect older video games, though I play everything. Big Atari fan, as well as NES fan. I do have a high regard for the PSX/PS2. Not that I am not a fan of newer stuff, just I have a strong attachment to stuff I grew up playing. Playstation hit around the age of 18 or so (didn't get one until they dropped down to $99, my money, not my parents'), and that helped cement that hobby! Ha ha ha! Hopefully I am not the only one like this. To make a long story short, I was just popping into say "Hi" to the members here. I like to think of myself as relatively social by nature.
