Louisiana Roll Call

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by BrianP, Aug 26, 2010.

  1. I just joined the forum here, and I see that the Louisiana section is new, too. If you are from Louisiana, give a shout out on this thread. What do you collect? Where do you shoot? Any gun shows coming up? Tell us more about you!

    I posted more details in my thread over in the introduction section. I live in St. Tammany Parish. I don't own any yet, but I am looking to purchase some World War II era rifles. I have a thing for bolt actions - I love them!
     
  2. Brian there are a few members from the great state of Louisiana that are'nt here right now.
    I live near El Dorado, Ar. about 12 miles from the northern center of Louisianas border.

    Where about in Louisiana do you live ?...A.H

    I used to hunt the two cypress brakes down that way. Before everything got leased up. Wish I could have seen the future I would have gotton the lease on everything I could have around those brakes. Would have let the locals keep deer hunting on it for just the small fee of leaving the ducks alone.

    Also have a friend who lives in Ajax.

    Myself I grew up in Keithville south of Shreveport.

  14. I live near Waterproof. I know. There is no place in Louisiana that is waterproof. Actually, there are two towns called Waterproof. I am from the more northern one.
    I shoot and reload for anything that goes bang.

    Hey Guys, I live in Ruston La. north central, 4 miles from La. Tech. I am part owner of a range that we shoot 22 matches on the 4th Saturday until Nov. and 300 yds. centerfire on the 2nd Sat. I shoot in both matches and won Factory HB in the last 22 match, and just won the 300 Yd. match today with a 6BR. I love to hunt and fish and shoot. Big Cane has come up and shot with us and is coming back. We would love to have U guys come up and shoot with us.
