I am excited to find such a website/ forum for my area. I am newer to firearms. The wife gave me permission. I have been interested in firearms since I was little and never been able to learn and able to purchase them until now. I am very happy that northwestfirearms.com has such a good size of members. Thanks for having me! Currently I have a Savage 111 in 30.06 and a Remington 1148 in 12ga. I am now on the look out for a Springfield Armory XD9.
