Just wanted to say hello out there to the forum and I am glad to have found a local forum about firearms on the web. Here is just a brief rundown about myself. I am 31 years old and currently working on joining the US Army. Last year was when I first purchased my first firearm. Growing up I have been shooting with friends and family. For awhile I did not like being around guns due to the fact of loosing 2 of my friends growing up due to an accidental discharge and the other homicide. Since then I learned to respect firearms and the responsibility in owning them.
