Wow, I didn't imagine a site like this was around. Glad I found it. Located just East of the Portland Metro area. My first gun was a Ruger single six, taught my kids with that gun, still have it. When I got an original unfired Colt .45 SSA (second generation) I broke it in by having all of my children fire a round, still have it. I have a wide interest, old west stuff, newer semi autos, only one rifle with a big scope, but its all good. My wife and I have CCL's and have been learning much about self defense methods. She likes to shoot. I am fortunate to have a few friends that are active in this sport. Well anyways, just looking forward to doing a lot of reading and learning here. I don't really post a lot but will when I can contribute something positive. Thanks all!
