Newby Saying Thank You

Post by DrSoup32 » 05 Feb 2014, 16:21

I am new to shooting and reloading. (And I will try and not get sappy here.)

In October 2012 I bought my first rifle, an AK-47, and have gone a little crazy since then. I am a physician and have a great wife who puts up with my habits. :)

A young patient of mine introduced me to the PS90 and Five-Seven pistol. I quickly bought my own and I love them.

I started reloading the 9, 40, 45, 30-06, .223, 6.5x55, 270 WSM, .308, .303 British, 7.5x55, 7.62x54r and a few others (ok a lot crazy). In researching the 5.7 I was intimidated by this little round. I researched the heck out of this forum and today fired off my first successful rounds. Thanks to you guys/gals I still have my hands and therefore occupation!

This thank you is truly heartfelt. You folks have put a whole lot of time, energy and money into the education of others. Being willing to share your talents and skills with others is truly noble. People like you will be the saving grace of our democracy.

At any rate . . . THANK YOU!

Hello! I own the USG, I have had it about 4 years. It was bought by someone to take his CCW class with and when he was done it went into the consignment shop. I have to say this is one of the nicest weapons I have fired!

Hey y'all,

I'm just in from Music City, USA. The FiveseveN is a recent addition. I'm thinking this FiveseveN will become my primary carry. I also have my C&R with a very small collection of ComBlock weapons.

joined the other day to research a 5.7 that my father was looking into. He bought it today and I've got the bug bad. As such, I'll be on here learning more and ultimately pick one up. Great resource y'all have here.

Just joined as I was finally!!!! able to find a 5.7 and bought it! I am looking forward to learning from the experiences of others on this site. I was hopping I could purchase one before these douche bags aka government in IL ban them.

Hi all,

I'm a new member here- been lurking for the past 3 days or so. I finally registered so I could post a WTB. I have an M1A Scout with walnut stock & iron sights and I'm looking to get a FsN. Preferably black USG with fixed tritium combat night sights. It's going to be the bedside weapon, SHTF sidearm, camping/wilderness accessory and occasional range toy. Not trying to shoot the hat off a small man from 50 yards away like in Last Samurai.

Anyways. The FsN is awesome. I mean, after all, why WOULDN'T somebody want the same weapon the US secret service uses to protect the president? and of course Sam Fisher's handgun of choice!

Hello everyone, I'm Sean and live in Michigan. I have had a PS90 & USG for awhile and finally was able to pick a MK2 last month. I have been lurking around this forum for awhile and look forward to gaining as much knowledge and information as humanly possible.
