    First, I must say that I've been an avid fan of guns ever since I saw the Gulf War live as a little kid. I always figured I'd be Military of some sort when I got older. Even stayed true to that thought when I was going in to college, and most recently, as I was leaving college. I originally had hoped to do ROTC while in college but that didn't pan out. EArlier this summer I attemtped to enlist with the coast guard, but they didn't want me since I was ADD/ADHD and still on medication for it.

    I'm currently a recent grad (BS in Business Admin) and have bought my frist hand gun (which if you think I'm a troll, that means you've seen my threads, and likely know about my gun). I'm happy about this because I feel that I am a mature person (I'm 23, just graduated college) and I feel that owning a gun is a responsibility. It's also a right that I want to exercise the hell out of.


    I've never shot much as a kid since anyone who ever shot guns was hunting down here, and I always found hutning to be a boring past time. My frist real exposure (aside from just staring at my dad's rifles and looking at how pretty they were) to guns was at a summer camp I went to where you could sign up for shooting and shoot some .22s with iron sights. I was rather hooked. I enjoyed it a lot and was happy I got to do that for 3 summers in a row.

    I must say that I've always respected guns since I know what they're capable of. I also knew that if I ever wanted to get to hold them and work their bolt actions when I was younger, I had to show to people that I was respectful and cautious.

    As for why I've bought a gun recently, there have been a slough of reasons. First and foremost is self defense. While I don't CC or Open Carry (legal in Louisiana), I feel that I should be capable of defending myself, my home, and my property. This becamse a HUGE issue after Gustav and Ike. It was then that I bought a gun cleaning kit and went to work on cleaning all the rifles we owned. This lead me to start going to the range, reading more about the guns I have, and doing my best to keep in working shape.

    I plan to mainly use my pistol as a range gun. I'll likely bring it with me on overnight hikes since I would feel somewhat safer if I did. The only other time I'd see myself using my pistol currently is if there were a home invasion going on at my house and I were here.


    I post a lot on this forum because I am rather new to guns. Other than a basic understandnig and basic knowledge, I really don't know a whole lot beyond that. That's why I've been posting a lot. If you feel that the humor/joking that I do in my threads detracts from the serious of firearms, just say something :o. That's just part of my personality I suppose as I am always looking for the humor in a situation.

    I'm very thankful for the responses I've had thus far since everyone has been helpful, and the flaming hasn't been too bad (that'll change with this thread I'm sure :mamoru:).

    Hopefully this thread will do well in making you gun crew guys not see me as a troll and maybe one day as a peer :wavey:

    And, since everyone's seen my pistol, here are my rifles (NEEDS MORE ASSAULT RIFLE):

    Yeah bro, I'm looking for a date since I want to squeeze someone's Koch :hay:

    But seriously, a few people here thought my threads were kinda trollish :greddy: so I figured I'd at least introduce myself and what little I know about guns so people here may undestand where I'm coming from with my posts :o

    I found it funny that the acronym is BS. It'll be fun to ask people "oh, are you a member of BS?" or "Do you read BS often?" or "oh, you'd like BS, you should check it out sometime."

    that'll provoke some great responses :rofl:

    yeap! I've never shot it, and I have no reason for that since I wanted to shoot it so many years ago. I should probably pick up a box of .22lr the next time I'm on an ammo run so I can do some plinking with it.
