I’d like to introduce myself and share some of what I hope to add to the community.
My first gun: A glock 19. I wont go too much into detail here(maybe a “why I carry” thread in the future), but my Wife and I were attacked coming home at 1am from my parents place on new years. We decided on a handgun. I was hooked instantly and preceded to get into rimfire target shooting, handloading, self defense training, and precision rifle.
I own many firearms but my “baby” Is a savage .223 12 VLP now in a bedded boyds At One stock topped with a Vortex Golden Eagle15-60x52 . Single feed converted. Currently feeding her 82 bergers. I just joined a range that has access to 600 meters but only one select days. I hope to get out there for my first time soon. Really slim pickings for long range in my area.

I shoot 2 times a week and have abandoned all other hobbies to make way for this one. Well… almost. I do photography as well so If any of you are in the New Hampshire area and want photos, I really enjoy doing it!

I have almost as much fun precision handloading as I do shooting!

Upcoming Videos: Because I do photography, I also dabble in video. I have a youtube channel but for obvious reasons I have been hesitant to post due to the new upcoming restrictions. Videos will feature Firearm reviews, hand loading tutorials and equipment reviews, DIY videos, and more. I also plan on doing some overview of Quick load software. Worth noting that the videos I share are never to milk likes and entertain, but to offer good and accurate information that will help people. I am anxious to get a channel up and running here!

Welcome to the forum. Great to have you. That is one sweet looking gun. Feel free to jump right it. Most of us are really nice, but few fart a lot.
