Hey there from Arizona (by way of Philly)!!

#1 Post by JadeBlue77 » Wed Aug 07, 2019 6:57 pm

Hey all. I'm a new member of this here club. I've been wanting to join for awhile. I'm from Philly, born and raised, and moved to the Phoenix metro area of AZ (Gilbert, to be exact) 2 years ago, to be with my girlfriend and our daughter. I was raised rather anti-gun, but a close veteran friend and my girlfriend really changed my views on things. I am now a proudly armed socialist living in a very MAGA state. Things about me: I am disabled, autistic, queer, and trans, I'm a vegetarian, I love true crime and scifi, I have degrees in criminal justice and sociology, and I'm an avid reader and PC and tabletop gamer. My favorite of my current guns is my AR9, which my awesome girlfriend built for me. That's all I can think of for the moment, so thanks for having me. :clap:

That's pretty much the most specific and rare demographic I've yet encountered here. Welcome from northern California where we have rice and nuts. And peaches to die for.

What are you armed with, socialist? Lately I've been using my Springer 1911.

The wolf came in, I got my cards. We sat down for a game.
Cut the deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same.

Well it’s a comfort to know that even West Philly isn’t that small.

Hey Jade, sorry I missed this before.

Welcome from the only shooter here (I think) from Maricopa.

Bienvenidos!

Welcome!

Yeah, I check a lot of boxes..lol. We actually drive to Cali quite often. Usually for Universal, but also up to San Fran for fun, and for surgical-related reasons.

My current every-day carry is my Smith&Wesson M&P 9mm. My favorite ones to target practice with are my Ruger Mark IV 22 Lite, and the aforementioned custom AR9.

Where in Jersey? I grew up right off the 322 exit for the Commodore Barry, I played roller derby for awhile in Asbury Park, and my ex in-laws live in Toms River.

Haha! What would you like to know? I play A LOT, so my list of faves is quite long, but they include: Lords of Waterdeep, Scythe, Machi Koro, Twilight Imperium, The Resistance, Forbidden Desert, Star Trek Catan, and Tiny Epic Kingdoms. I also play some MtG (only casually now, instead of the intensity I played with in the past), and some miniature wargames (Warhammer 40K, Blood Bowl).

Up in Essex County, just across the Passaic River from Morris County. Exit 145 off the GSP.

Did I not mention D&D? That's what I get for responding when I'm tired. The gf and I play quite a bit of it. She is a pretty great DM, too.

lately i play elder scrolls, mostly morrowind again and again. oblivion and skyrim were disappointing, though i play them now and then. i HATE steam, and i think bethsoft sacrificed storytelling for visual detail in the latter 2.
