    Hi, everyone! Just want to introduce myself. I have only recently (2012) become a gun owner, and am glad that I've found a solid-looking regional forum on the subject. Though previously anti-gun, I have since come around and recognized the importance of the right of private citizens to bear arms and now I can't see what I was so worked up about (though I do still tend to find myself on the left side of many other issues). I look forward to spending some time here. Be well.

    Thanks!

    So far I have a Glock 17 and a Remington 700 in .30-06.

    I'm taking the Oregon hunter education course (finish next week) and I'm looking forward to doing some hunting this fall.

    Welcome. You have some well respected firearms so far. They both should serve you well for a long time.

    Congratulations! The two you have are great firearms, and will serve you well for a long, long time.

    Hunters Education is a good program to take.

    Be safe and enjoy!

    Welcome. A G17 and a Rem700 in 3006 is a heck of a good way to start. As a former anti-gunner, I say, good for you!

    Anytime you want some rangetime, send me a PM. I head to Tri-county about every other week.
