Hey,

Didn't realize I was lacking a forum account. I mostly watch the Facebook page, but figured I would come check out the forum as well.

Welcome!

Got any guns? What do you shoot?

I've got a few. Currently working on finishing my .300 Blackout pistol build. Waiting to find some more .50 Beowulf ammo so I can go break that build in. Then struggling to decide which caliber of bolt action to pick up next. Head says 300 Win mag, but my poor impulse control is pushing me towards 6.5 Creedmoor. My heart is telling me .338 Lapua Magnum, but my wife keeps vetoing it. I love .338 LM.

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell. Usta live on East Thomas at 44th. It was all orange & date groves then.

I haven't seen .50 Beowulf ammo in stock for nearly a year. Best of luck on that.

If you love the 6.5 C, then go for it. It is a fine round. If you just want to shoot paper, why go 300 Win Mag? Go with what you want and will shoot. This is a hobby, after all.

I think it's all cement and houses now. Last time I saw any orange groves was heading towards Mesa.

I love collecting so I end up with a bunch of stuff. I am thinking of getting back into hunting and 300 Win Mag seems like a good all around caliber for larger game. That's the only reason it has been competing with 6.5 Creedmoor for me.

Welcome! Anything made by Finns is a must, go for the Lapua .338 Magnum.

Hi from NJ. I went with .308.

Why not get one of each? I seem to end up doing that anyway. :)

Moved here in 2012. Hoping to be leaving by the end of this year!

Have that in my AR-10. Bit heavier to pack around hunting than I want.

Phoenix has grown immensely over the decades. Is that why you are leaving?

We originally moved here on a whim. Got a job offer for something I didn't apply for. Since we've been here it has expanded rapidly and the cost of housing has climbed beyond what we want to pay. On top of fairly stagnant wages for my wife and my professions. I also sat on a water board some years back out of curiosity. The wells are drying up and with the weather it's speculated that they won't get back to appropriate levels to support the growing population.

We want to move to greener pastures. Somewhere that has affordable housing that I can ranch sheep, yak, chickens, and other stuff on.

Yak? Those are pretty expensive versus cattle.

Among other things. They've got a lot of good potential.

The initial buy is more expensive, but long term they're cheaper with a higher resource output vs resource intake.
