Greetings, all from San Diego. My name is Jonathan, and I've been a liberal gun owner for at least 20 years, maybe 25. My first was a $60 Mosin-Nagant from the Big 5 in Santa Barbara back when they first flooded the market in the mid-90s. I used to shoot much more when I lived there, as it was easy to get up to the "glass factory" for a quick session, but here in San Diego, it's a long haul to get out somewhere you can shoot legally.

I'll get some pictures for the Gun Porn thread as soon as I can!

Mosin porn is awesome! Welcome!

I've got a Gen2 Glock 17 that I've owned almost as long as the Mosin. I picked up a Marlin 60 and some other rifles along the way as well. Recently, I decided that I didn't have a shotgun, and that was a problem needing to be rectified. I have fixed that with a NEF 20-ga single shot and have an import 20-ga autoloader in jail now. My safe is pretty full, so unless I find a smokin' deal on an M1A (or Norinco/Polytech M14), and/or a coach gun,I'm probably about done.

edited to add: Thank you for the other welcomes, as well. I'm planning on posting up in the various gun porn threads as soon as I have a chance to go through and take a few pictures.

The wily Mosin rocks! Welcome from along the 40th parallel in northern California where Mosins are a way of life.
