Greetings shooters. My name is Derek C. and I was born in Tillamook, OR but raised by divorced parents in both Tillamook and Tualatin. I joined the Navy in '04 and became a Corpsman (Navy medic) so now I live all over the place. Right now I'm stationed in Great Lakes, IL but I'll be headed back to Camp Pendleton , CA in 13 days to be stationed with the Marines again. I joined this community because I will remain an Oregon resident/voter and I do the majority of my shooting in the Vernonia and Tillamook areas when I'm home on leave. I'll be home (my parents place in Vernonia) here in about 15 days and I'll be burning through as much ammo as I can get my hands on. Right now I shoot mostly 7.62x54R out my 1895 Finnish M39, .223 out of my Rock River LAR-15, and .45ACP out my 1945 Ithaca 1911A1. I haven't been home for a good shoot in quite some time so overly anxious to get out there. I have a Boyd's featherwight thumbhole stock to bed my Mosin in and 20 lbs of In The Red Expolding Target compound already waiting for me. I'm also going to pick up a 440 round can of 7.62x54R somewhere on my way through the country.
