View Full Version : No more lurking, joined to learn about legal guns.

I thought its best to introduce myself, and a bit of my philosophies for anybody who looks back at my posts.

I live in NorCal, and proud of it.

I am currently assembling some guns with my kids, they are machining their own so they are legally their own for when they grow up (which is happening fast).

I need to learn more about guns and their assembly. I distinctly remember saving up for my first Crosman BB pistol, and later I was taught how to hunt by my Dad and Grampa. It was many years later while I was with my kids at 4H shooting school, that I realized from the instructor there, that everything I learned was one dimensional. Not bad habits or anything, but so much has changed. I have since been teaching myself more, in order to help my kids and myself be safer and smarter.

Joining this forum is part of learning, and I belong to other forums where I am helpful because I know a lot about (cars, motorcycles, restoration). If I become knowledgeable enough about guns, I intend to be helpful here too.

We intend to hunt turkey this spring, and hopefully ducks by this fall. Our other (preassembled) guns are for plinking and fun.

I am interested in .22 target pistol plinking, handguns for personal protection, bird hunting shotguns, and now tactical gun shooting for fun.
