I am an artist, industrial designer, and tattooer.
I am excited to be a part of this community! I recently got rid of my social media accounts due to a change in community that soured me to those formats. Things started getting too superficial for my taste. This seems like a much better fit.
From Marseilles, live near Wilmington
Have a few shotguns, a few pistols, and Colt AR. Building another AR and found this site.
Tech Supervisor for a pipeline company, do controls and Electronics stuff.
Hello, yet another Illinoisan checking in.
My name is Cole.
Born and raised in Du Page County. Grew up in Wheaton, and still reside in Du Page County.
I work in the IT industry.
I love rifles and long walks on the beach.
I have lurked on this forum for awhile now, and have found the wisdom and advice from others more experienced than myself invaluable.
In fact, I solved a failure to fire problem I was having last weekend because of this forum. I had my hammer spring on backwards, and 3-4 rounds per 30 in a mag would fail to fire. I felt like an idiot, as I have put a FCG together a few other times; but I guess I was in a rush this time after cleaning and assembled it wrong.
Hand guns and just bought my first AR-15

Good morning everyone!
My name is Joe, I recently moved to Illinois from Boston, MA and just by chance I unknowingly moved to Dupage county which is ALOT more relaxed than I am used to. I have my FOID & CCL and I'm looking for people to hang out with, make some new friends and have a few buddies to talk shop with.
I have the typical boring layout....9, 45, 308 bolt action, AR, AK & shotgun. Nothing unique.
Anyhow, I'm glad to be here and hopefully I run into some of you people in the future!
Glock pistols, Concealed carry, Self defense....etc etc
