I bought my first gun a little over a year ago and I'm hooked. It was a Bushy ORC and she's a beauty. I have since bought a Beretta CX4 Storm in 40S&W, a Kel Tec PLR16, a GSG5, and a crappy Walther PPKS. I live in the 'burbs but I'm lucky enough to have two nice ranges, one indoor one outdoor, within ten miles of me. My son loves to go shooting with me so I got him a 40S&W XDM for a college graduation present last Sept.

I hope to learn as much as I can here and contribute if I know what I'm talking about.

Great arsenal. I especially like your choice of the CX4, since I have one in the same caliber. I really enjoy that carbine.

Please do not take offense, if, after a few days or weeks, a discussion arises about your Avatar. We sometimes are visually challenged, and use words like "creepy" and "scary". Do not take this as a criticism of YOU. It is more, a funny criticism of US.

I'm pretty hard to offend, and creepy & scary sound more like compliments to me.

Is that Boris Karloff?

Looks like him to me, but some of the other voices disagree and say it looks more like Janet Reno
