Newbie says Hi


I've been lurking for some time and decided it was time to say hello. I live in the Portland area, been here for a bit over 20 years now, originally from SE Idaho. Ive been shooting since I was 8 years old and used to hunt but just do a lot of target shooting nowadays. Personal bio: Army vet (Tanker), married for 33 years, one grown son, and I sometimes think I'm older than dirt. Glad to be here and I'll post when I think I can shed some light on a topic. Great forum we have here.
