  1. Welcome from North Carolina, Lauren! You'll really enjoy being here. The fellas can be a bit rough and tumble, but once you get to know them, they're actually pretty wonderful.

    Don't hesitate to tease and torment them, either. They actually like it ;)

    My grandparents have a ranch outside Fredericksburg, so I go out there usually as opposed to range. I shoot my Glock 19, and most recently S&W Shield 9. As far as rifles, I have a WASR. It is a great gun for ATV riding if I encounter feral hogs, which can be aggressive. Then I have an AR which I've never shot.

    I forgot about the Canadian river being down there.
    first time I seen it I had left North Dakota after 12 hours out on an oil field location and flew into Oklahoma and was asleep in a pickup truck.
    I half woke up, seen that sign and about jumped out of the seat.

    If I find myself in the neighbourhood, I shall call in. I gave up dirt bikes years ago but do very much enjoy shooting....'specially with good company.

    Welcome to the Forum from the Peoples Democratic Republic of New York. (No, I don't live in the Rotten Apple. I live a full degree of latitude north of there.)

    If you are going out riding in feral hog country, we have GOT to introduce you to the mighty Mosin Nagant. It's not expensive, and with a little TLC you can bring it from accurate to minute-of-fascist-invader down to minute-of-angle. I've seen videos of people taking hogs at 350 yards from the bed of a moving truck with the Mosin.

    Does the "nb" in your Forum name stand for New Braunfels?

    Hi, yes, I'm in New Braunfels! And omg, I will never shoot one of those again I usually just shoot at my grandparents ranch outside Fredericksburg, but 1 day I went to a public range. Another shooter convinced me I needed to shoot his Nagant. I was apprehensive when he handed me the bullet to show me, and the fact the gun was almost my height! Not wanting to be rude I shot it. Jesus, I only wanna shoot one of those again if I truly HAVE to. It was not pleasant. I am sure it is a great rifle, just not for me.
