    Hey you all,

    Your board is pretty cool so far. Years ago, in the '70's I picked up a 10/22 and Mark II to plink and vermin hunt. You see no one in my family hunted. It was not then cool to advertise having a gun in the household. So with lots of kids to worry about and no hunting by dad, no guns were about growing up. I bought a pistol and rifle but didn't really use them. Now 30 years later, I've brought home a new defense and maybe CC pistol - thanks to some FFL's on this board. So it seems I am just starting out at an older age.

    Well this board has been my information place so far. In a way, you all are my mentors. Seems funny that an internet site might hold my mentors.

    Yah, Joey, I did post elsewhere on this board before intro's. You can kick my butt in person at the Expo Gun show. I'll look for you all then.

    Thanks,
    John
