Greetings! I'm in Snohomish, WA, am around 40-ish, and have multiple pistols and long guns. I have permits to carry concealed issued from WA, OR, and UT. I am not new to forums at all. I am relatively new to firearms, meaning a few years. Don't expect me to recognize a particular model and tell you its characteristics by looking at a photo of it, but if you handed it to me I could figure out how to field strip it in most cases. If it was a Ruger MK III with the magazine safety still installed, I'd probably have to peek at the manual again to remove the receiver and put it back together. I have a Kahr CM9, Walther PPQ, S&W M&P 15/22, Ruger Charger, couple of .22lr mini-revolvers, and a few others. I looked through the rules but didn't see anything about avatars or posting photos in the message body. I expect I'll find that info somewhere, but if someone sees this first, can you tell me how many posts I need to write before I can send up an avatar or post photos? I guess that's about enough to be getting on with for now. See you on the forum!
