Doomguard here, happened across GunsLot today while looking for firearms reviews and have managed to sink most of my afternoon and early evening into perusing the site.
My earliest exposure to firearms came to me at the age of 8 when I took the hinges off my great uncle's gun cabinet and liberated his .22 pistol to sneak off to the local garbage dump for an afternoon of shooting soda cans. (needless to say, I got into a great deal of trouble for this little foray....) I purchased my first firearm at the age of 16, a New England single shot 20 gauge which I still own and take into the field for upland game from time to time. I've recently expanded my rifle & shotgun collection to include handguns and have my first "black" rifle on order (I have been impatiently waiting now for several months for a Kel-Tec RFB).
I married a lovely woman in 2007, and I'm not afraid to admit that one of the reasons I proposed was that she can shoot like Lyudmila Pavlichenko. Despite a limited exposure to firearms during her early life, she still outshoots me on the range some days. Couldn't let that one get away.
I work as a consultant, while my wife ably takes care of our abode and furthers her education. No kids (yet), one very energetic Alaskan husky named Thor, two brothers (one of whom is currently serving in the US Army). My family and my wife's family both have a long tradition of service to our respective country's armed forces. My family has had relatives serve in every major conflict since the birth of America. My wife's family has service medals from every major conflict on the Eastern Front during WWII-Berlin to Yalta to Moscow. Prior to the Soviet Union's formation, they were aligned with the White Army.

I am looking forward to some interesting discussions here. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
