I'm new on this board, but a 40-year firearm owner, just a pair of 10/22s, but I love 'em. We plan on getting a couple of Mark III 22/45s and a Mossberg 500 soon. We live in CA but that's not permanent as we won't be able to afford to retire here. I enjoy reading about others' shooting adventures. I can do without the politics. Hope to have lots of fun with y'all, and thanks!
