New guy. Sounds kind of boring, but...

#1 Post by BjornSig » Mon Oct 22, 2018 8:43 pm

Just a new member. I lurked for a while decided to join. I LOVE guns. Always have. Grew up around them as I got older, the attraction grew.

I am a huge pistol guy. I own quite of few handguns; hell, I own a lot of them.

I love AR's even more, if that is possible.

I own a bit of open land and shoot nearly every weekend.

Not sure how involved I will get on postings and stuff. Time, for all of us, is valuable. If something really peeks my interest, I will chime in. Most of the time, I'll sit back and read what others post.

Thanks :newhere:

Welcome from the Pacific Northnotaswetasusual. Where do you hail from. What kinds of pistols? Sigs, CZ, Glocks, S&W, Venezuelan Beaver cheese? Inquiring minds want to know.

Up North.

As for the Pistols, I am open to most. I own: Glocks, Rugers, Smith and Wesson, Kimber, Springfield and many others. My EDC is the Springfield XDS in 45ACP.

I have a gun for all occasions and all outfits. I have guns that I only carry walking the dog. Called, "My Dog Walking Gun".

Seriously, I have very little prejudice when it comes to guns. Some of the really cheap ones I will do without.

In regards to the AR's, again, too many to list. Buying guns began as a hobby, now it seems like an obsession.

I thought 4 was more than enough: 2 striker-fired hand guns and 2 PCCs, all 9mm.

Then the NJ lege started making noises about outlawing ALL semi-automatics. It hasn't gone anywhere (yet) but I figured I should get a non-semi-auto of each, so I got a revolver and a lever-action, both in .357 magnum / .38 special.

6 is MORE than enough, though I'd still like to get an AR-10 in .308 with wood "furniture".

But there is a DEFINITE drawback: The more you take to the range, the more you have to clean afterwards!

I could and do spend hours cleaning guns. For me, it is the ultimate relaxation. Pop in some music and clean away.

I can and do spend hours cleaning guns, too.
I'll put something on my Surface or iPad to watch and listen to (football or news is good), but it's still a chore and maybe it's because I'm just slow at it.
I always seem to have a stiff, aching back after.

Cleaning is fun. I always ask my shooting guest if they would like to help. This gives them the opportunity to learn more about the mechanics and proper maintenance if they every become gun owners themselves.

Also, since I switched from using Frog Lube to Sage & Braker, the smell has gotten a whole lot better (Bourbon with a hint of lemon). If you haven't heard of it, check it out. It is a tad bit expensive, but you end up using less of the product because it works so well.
