Hello from the Oregon coast!


I have been lurking around this site for a couple of months now, so I figured I should finally introduce myself. I stumbled upon this great site while doing some research on building an AR15, which thankfully I finished right after Thanksgiving. I also have a 12 gauge Benelli nova, and CZ75/Ruger LCR for pistols. Just started getting back into shooting guns and this time actually learning about them.
I grew up in Texas and ended up here in Oregon because of serving for 4 years in the Coast Guard. Had lots of fun, but having four kids and a wife made going underway more difficult then we wanted. Hope to learn more about guns while I am here and maybe make it to some pistol/rifle shoots, 3 gun looks pretty interesting as well.... Also hope people and prices settle down with guns and ammo so my kids will have the same opportunities to become responsible gun owners. Thanks for the site!
