    I know I am not from the North West. I found this site when I was searching for directions on the trigger fix for Smith and Wesson Sigma .40.

    Great site y'all have. Hope to learn some more from everyone. I just got my first ever gun back in February and now have total of 3.

    I am also kinda into photography so I take a lot of pictures of my guns.

    First ever gun was the Mossberg ATR 100 .270. Added the bipod and ammo sleeve to it.

    Went out to my bosses house (live in city limits) to shoot it for the first time. I was given the chance to shoot his 12 gauge shotgun. About a month later I bought a Mossberg 88 maverick

    Then 2 weeks ago I got the S&W Sigma 40

    Welcome! I've done some work in Carthage MO a few different times and alway try to fly into Springfield (that way I can visit the Bass Pro store ;) What a great store you have there! Last year while I was there, it seem like it was under a heavy remodel of the 'scenery'...

    Welcome! I grew up in Kansas City on the KS side, but spent many a vacation south of you in the Ozarks.

    Roaring River State Park, the Elk River around Noel. God's country!!

    This may be Northwest Firearms but I don't think you have to be from the Northwest. I don't think they will change the name to Northwest and Midwest Firearms but welcome. I'm a member of Calguns even though I don't live in California. I just like to rub it in and post to my friends back home what I can legally own in Oregon that they can't in California.

    Ya they are adding a bowling alley in there. I prefer not to shop at Bass Pro it is expensive for me. I like the new Academy Sports store. I do like bass pro to look around and eat at Hemingways.

    Once you get use to it. It really is not that bad. Of course the weather can change in 20 minutes from 100 to 70 and rain/tornados

    Both of those places are great to go to. Especially around summer time. Branson is so close and everyone else is there.
