(moved from Battlefield Mess hall due to lack of response):
Hey all! I am fairly new to this group so i haven't had a chance to get to know many of you yet, however i thought i would share with you what occupies a good portion of my time aside from gaming with you good people and spening time with my wonderful fiancee and beautiful 2 year old daughter: GUNS! aka Weapons, Firearms, leadslingers (whatever you want to call them.
I am an Army brat, i grew up overseas on various bases and when my Dad (Master Sgt.) and my Mom (Major) finally decided to retire and move us to the states, I immediately started shooting anything i could find. I grew up hearing stories of my Dad growing up on a farm, being able to come home and grab a pocket full of .22's and a rifle to go check his trapping line (im not kidding, he picked and sold berries and sold the skinds of the animals he trapped to pay for college). Unfortunately the only time i ever got to shoot was when we visited family back in Ohio over summer vacation. SO, first I got into paintball, then got a rifle (many rifles and shotguns after i turned 18) and on the GLORIOUS day of my 21st birthday i got my first legal handgun. I have 8 of them now as well as an assortment of Rifles, both bolt action and semi auto and a few shotguns.
This hobby has culminated in me realizing its what i really love in life so I am totally stoked to announce I was just accepted to the Pennsylvania Gunsmithing school and will be starting classes soon. I cant wait to graduate and make money doing what i love.
ANYWAY sorry for droning on BUT: I was just curious if anyone else shared my hobby/interest.
Below it the only picture of one my guns i could find off-hand because it was on facebook, Its my Sig-Sauer P220, a .45 ACP with an integral laser and it looks like i had the extended clip in it too :)
