Angelo B. a 50 year old factory grunt from somewhere between Joliet and New Lenox, IL.
4 years ago my brother gave me suped up Norinco 1911 Gov. clone and it's been responsible firearms ownership and safe shooting ever since. I really don't know much about guns but I can detail strip all of 'my' guns nor do I shoot very well but I'm trying. I shoot on the inlaws farm at least a couple times per month. I also go to Buffalo Range once in awhile.
Along with the Norinco 1911 clone I have a Ruger New Single Six in bright stainless, .357 mag Taurus Tracker with 6.5" barrel, unissued CZ 52 in 7.62x25 Tokarev, a nickle Rossi model 68 .38 Spl with 3" barrel, Marlin rifle model 982VS in .22 WMR a 1959 vintage .22LR Remington model 572 Lightweight, an old sporterized Mauser in .243 Win. and finally...last week I ordered a new RRA NM A4 and am really looking forward to it.

I shoot a lot of paper but would like to start hunting, haven't since I was a kid.
I picked shooting up again a couple of years ago because I missed it.  I enjoy it and its always come easy to me.  I also enjoy using anything mechanical, even cleaning my guns (K, so maybe I'm weird on this point).
Just recently started perusing the "hometown" section in hopes of finding people to shoot with and places to shoot.
