    Hello, my name is Vodoun da Vinci and I am from the US Midwest. Moline, Illinois to be precise. I stumbled on this site looking for recent discussion online revolving around the Colt's 1903 Model M and the most recent discussion I could come across was on this site. :D

    It's nice to be here and I hope to give as well as receive relevent information about firearms in general and handguns specifically.

    Illinois, the last state in the union to allow concealed carry, has finally passed a law by which we can carry concealed here. I am an avid shooter from years ago but have not been active or even to a range for over 7 years. I have picked it up again as of last weekend at an indoor range. I'm gonna try and get my concealed carry permit when it is possible and intend to shoot at least once a month as we have to pass a 16 hour course as well as proficiency test to gain our CCW.

    Wish me luck and thanks in advance friends!

    It's my web presence name...I use it as I moderate on a flightsim forum and learned long ago to be careful about who gets my real name. :laugh:

    Primarily a hand gunner who has been out of the habit for some years but has recently revived my interest in shooting I am on the lookout for an online forum to learn and share - to be informed, nurtured and stay in tune of what's going on in the firearm world. I came here because a thread on the Colt 1903 Model M was the most current on the 'Net and this pistol is very dear to me.

    Been here a couple weeks now and I'm really put off by a number of things but mostly the lack of courtesy on this board and the predominance of unqualified "bully" style responses and general lack of community spirit and nurturing of being a firearm enthusiast and lover of all things firearm.

    I think I'll keep looking for a firearms/handgun forum that suits me and my interests and ideas. Mostly it has been fun but this forum isn't really for folks like me...

    Thanks for putting up with me in my brief time on the forum. But wading thru and bunch of mean, angry, opinionated, and useless posturing posts to get an ounce of useful information is not really what I had in mind.

    See ya...and good luck! :cool:

    Sorry you had such a negative experience here. Unfortunately over the last year or so the attitudes of some on here have been less than desirable. Sign of the times I guess, people are miserable in there own lives And do there best to share that misery with the rest of us. Anyway hope to see u around here again in the future.
