Hi Ya'll
I live in south Louisiana across the Great River from Chocolate City alais the Big Easy, alais The city that care forgot, or forgot to care
I forget which. The City that confacates legal firearms from law-abiding citizens during local emergencies etc.
I was introduced to hunting and longarms at the tender age of seven years by a dear, since departed uncle. I have been active in the shooting sports since that time, hunting with rifle,shotgun and bow.
By bow I mean real bows not the ones with wheels or cams on them.
I am a Navy Veteran, and U.S. postal carrier retiree, I am also a published poet.I am married one wife,(40 years!) two children, now grown and a grandparent.
In 2005 my son introduced me to handgun shooting and for the past two years I have been actively learning to shoot revolvers. (I also have a few of my very own now. All Rugers (are there any other revolvers?)
My Rugers are all single action 'cowboy' types OM Vaqueros, a new model Blackhawk, a Single Six,and an OM Bisley Vaquero all in .45 caliber, except of course the single six. I also have a Ruger 10/.22
Most of my longarms were aquired before being introduced to handguns.
So I really have no need of aquiring new ones. Handguns, however, are a whole other game, can't seem to stop buying them. I no sooner finish paying one off than I'm looking at another!Is there a cure for this malady? If so please let me know what it is!
Anyway, that's me in a brass cartridge case. Oh by the way I'm also an avid re-loader.
I hope to be here awhile and asking as well as attempting to answer questions I feel I'm qualified to answer. If anyone has an objection to my answer or newer information to add please feel free to do so.

Welcome from KY! (And no, there is no cure from buying guns, just new diseases to overcome!)

I have relitives in the area. Been going up there since I was knee high to a *******. Hunted around there for more years than I care to count.

Welcome from Texas! Just jump in anytime and visit! Bow hunting without wheels? Didn't know there were folks left that used a regular bow! Maybe i ought to write the Nuge and request he do a show with a recurve instead of a compound.

Alexandria, on the west side of the River. I do get down to Bunkie from time to time-- Mainly shoot at the Woodworth Range.

I have been away from the forum for a couple of weeks for a wedding and vacation. So a belated welcome from Shawnee, Oklahoma via upstate New York (Poland, NY). Although I have had hand guns since the 1960s, Colt Offical Police, Ruger 357 BH and Mark I. Like you my son got me really interested in shooting handguns. I have a 50 yd range from my front porch and I shoot almost everyday, 357 BH, SP101, GP100, MK I and S&W 686.
