Hey everybody! I've been lurking here for a while, decided to make an account just to make things easier. I'm only a 19 year old college student right now, so most people think it's a little weird I have such a passion for firearms, but it was how I've been raised. My grandpa on my father's side was an USAF Staff Sergeant, my grandpa on my mother's side was an Army First Sergeant and served in Korea, and my father has always been a huge firearm enthusiast too. My father and I share our collection of firearms, many of which came from my maternal grandfather when he passed away. I'm extremely proud of all the firearms we own and religiously clean them for the enjoyment. Right now we own WWII issued M1 carbine, Springfield M1 garand, and Colt 1911 all in immaculate condition that were left to us by my grandfather. We have a pair of 10/22s for plinking and ground squirrel hunting, Marlin model 25 .22wmr for plinking also, Norinco SKS, Taurus .357 mag, Ruger MKII just to name a few. My father acquired a Sig p226 stainless and we split the price of a S&W M&P 15 Sport we purchased off of Calgunner yzernie (Great guy and great prices!). I'm also in the middle of building an Egytian AKM parts kit with a couple of my buddies on my free time. I live on campus here at SJSU during the week and with my parents in Livermore on the weekends and shoot at the Livermore Rod and Gun club most weekends. I'm probably going to be looking for some help with my AK build here soon so any build parties in the bay area would be awesome!

Thanks for reading,
Marshall

Marshall, sounds great. I used to have many M1 Carbines, tons of ammo and tons of large capacity mags for them; this was years ago...I love them. Hope to see you on the many forums.

Haha, sorry about that, I'm just used to formal and technical writing is all, not this whole forum business.

Welcome aboard. I used to shoot at Livermore every Saturday and have met a few Calgunners there. I have not shot in 6 months or so because of certain reasons. I need to get back out soon and always like shooting with fellow Calgunners. Drop me a line if your going to be shooting at Livermore. It might be a month or so until I get out there, but I definitely need to get out there soon.

I live over in Pleasanton and like to go over to the Livermore Rod and Gun club to shoot as well. If you would like to meet over there sometime, let me know. I don't have much of a collection yet unfortunately, just a .22 and my M&P9.

The fact that you have your grandpa's weapons is awesome. Cherish them.
