I never introduced myself. My name is Joel, I am relatively new to shooting, but have enjoyed every minute of it. I have found this site very resourceful while looking at some of my reloading troubles, and I even purchased a pistol from another member. I look forward to continuing to lurk and ask all of you more knowledgable folks more questions. I do have a couple of questions, maybe you guys can point me the right way. I would really like to learn more about the mechanics of firearms themselves, and practical shooting. Are there any shops that would take volunteer help? Maybe a few hours a week? Or do any shops ever need part time help of any kind? I just would really like to have more exposure, but I can't really afford a "build your own... at our shop, and take it home", or "come stay with us and shoot a 1000 rounds" kind of thing. If you know anyone who would like to brush a newbie up on any aspect of the industry in a professional setting I would appreciate at least talking to them about it. Thanks for all the help!
