    Hi, I'm tac [that's easiest], a life-time shooter and gun-owner based in UK.

    mrs tac and I are frequent visitors to Oregon, where we have a good many close friends.

    I also contribute to a few other US-base forums, and hope to continue that by learning a lot here.

    Hello and Welcome Tac.
    I am very interested in hearing about the current situation facing shooters in the UK if you would be so kind as to tell us about that. :)

    Here's a Hide-Away that tac has hidden under his mattress. Don't tell the authorities, he doesn't have a permit for it.:paranoid:

    Hi,

    tac asked me to post these photos of his 1911. It has been altered to meet ownership requirements in the U.K.

    Hi tac,
    I was born and raised in Reading, and moved over here in 1999.
    I did almost all my shooting in the service, and when I came over here it was several years before my wife agreed to having guns in the house. She is a great shot and now enjoys shooting and even carries concealed.
    I'm wondering if the same gun legislation that happened in England could happen here - gun owners here fall into a few categories. I think there's a subset that would hand in all their guns if the law made them illegal.
    There are some that would hand in some of their guns, and then there's the rest who will hopefully start the revolution!
