    Okay, relax, I'm not smelly. I was born and raised in Germany, and have been a permanent resident in the US for a few of years. I am married to an awesome American woman whom I met on my first day of college back in Germany. We moved here a couple of years ago and love Portland and the Pacific NW.

    Other hobbies of mine are aquariums, training my one-year-old American pit bull terrier, hiking, watching football, going to the gym, and drinking large quantities of beer. I got into guns fairly recently, and I am excited to explore this new interest. My wife isn't too excited about the whole idea, but she's a good sport about it.

    Pleased to metcha! :peace:

    Welcome to the board
    grab a .22, a brick of ammo, a pack of crackers to shoot at, and head out for a day of fun, I've yet to have a female companion who wasn't converted by a .22 outing :)

    Welcome to the board. I had to chuckle when I read 'Smelly Foreigner Here'. Ich bin geboren und aufgewachsen in Deutschland als auch. Heimatstadt ist Augsburg.

    Thanks for warm welcome, everyone! I look forward to spending a lot of time on this fine discussion board.

    techieguy: I was born in Hamburg, but grew up and went to school in the very SW corner - just miles from the French and Swiss borders.

    I am sorry, and trust me I am not a racist nor do I have a problem for foreigners, but the title to your thread makes me laugh my arse off.
