    Hi, I recently married an amazing man who lives up here, so I am a happy import!
    I don't usually admit to being from So Cal, but I suppose it's an okay place to be FROM!
    This will be my second winter here, and I'm settling in nicely! We both love to shoot, and I am glad to have found this site! I came north with a 9mm and a Browning 12 gauge, but my hubby has pretty much anything you'd want to shoot! ;-)
    He said this site would be a wealth of information!
    I'm glad for any hints, tips, or suggestions you would like to give me.
    Thanks for being such a great 'community' of shooters!
    Jo

    Yea never mention So Cal, what you left behind, what you had there you 'miss', how you wish you had a (thing, place, store, restaurant, etc) like you had in 'California' , and NEVER attempt to 'recreate' ANYTHING you had in California - basically make California 'dead' to you - Oh and BTW welcome to CO - From a long ago transplant myself......

    No, its a crappy place to be from - kind of like saying a septic tank is an okay place to be from.

    Welcome, lots of good information and interesting conversation here. I'm happy to say that I escaped from southern commiefornia 40 years ago when I was young and I've never looked back.:)

    I went to SoCal once, then again just to make sure that I didn't like it the first time. I was right, I didn't like it at all. These days I can't find much of a reason to leave central Oregon for anywhere else. Welcome to the site!

    Thank you, Everyone! This is really great!
    Damn, the Septic tank reference made me bust out laughing!
    I appreciate every clean, beautiful nuance of this area, and this site is just awesome!
