A new guy from the Great State of Arizona

First off, I'm a pretty old guy, been shooting & owning firearms for longer than I can remember (Note I still own & Posses my Second gun). I'm big into reloading and reload at least a dozen different calibers. I'm not much into milsurp, but have owned a couple over the years. Became interested in NFA firearms in the late 1990's (own a few of them). I own a beltfed machine gun and love to shoot RC planes. I like shooting long distance, but not a expert. Got into Bullpups in the early 2010's, have a couple of those. And believe it or not, but I purchased my first 1911 three months ago.

I also used to enjoy playing Golf, until a bad back interrupted that and I'm a Computer guy (Retired IT guy) Like to dabble in hardware, started a couple of software companies years ago and always tried to have FUN !

I regularly visit a dozen different web sites most are gun related + some PC Sites.

Other than all of the switches I had to turn off on this site (So I don't get spammed to death), took a while. Hope I can enjoy being here and maybe learn something and maybe help some others out.

Welcome. West of Tucson, myself. I don't own my first, second, or third firearms, but i did give the 4th to my father so he still has it
I used to build computers and work as a volunteer tech for a recyclery about 15 years ago - decided a couple days ago to build myself a computer and realized i am soooooo out of touch with computer tech, it's unbelieveable

Welcome aboard. My wife and I lived in Buckeye for years but had to move to a more humid climate after she developed chronic dry eye syndrome. We have many friends living in the valley and fond memories of Arizona. I hope you find some great connections here!

    Anyone in Phoenix area should check out Arizona Firearms on University and Priest. They have a big selection of firearms and have great prices.
