Hi guys. I'm new around here and am happy to have found this forum. I've been hunting, shooting and reloading since I was very young. I'm 51 years old now and still enjoying myself with the above mentioned pursuits. Thanks for letting a new guy join in your fun here!

Thanks everyone. I'm glad to see that there are a lot of members that are in my same area. I do a lot of my shooting up at Burro Canyon. I was a long time patron of Fish Canyon (San Gabriel Valley Gun Club). I had been going there since I was about 16 years old (I'm 51 now). I just about cried when they closed that place down. It was such a part of my life for so many years. My kids learned to shoot there. I enjoy Burro, but I really liked SGVGC. Anyhow, it's good to be aboard here. I hope that sometime in the future, I can meet some of the guys here in person.

First thing tomorrow morning, it's off to the Stockade to pick up some H335 and some primers. Somebody stop me before I buy out the whole store!!

Nice to hear that you passed the shooting hobby on to your kids. Thanks for doing that. I worry that generations of tomorrow won't have an interest in safe, responsible gun ownership. Your kids own their own guns now?

Yes, I still miss the SGVGC very much. Damn shame.

Turby, my oldest son has his own guns now. My daughter isn't particularly interested in owning guns, although she does like to shoot. My youngest son is in college and honestly doesn't have the time or the money for guns right now.
