Hi everyone.
Army girl here. I was introduced to this site by my boyfriend, who is leaving for iraq tonight (boohoo). Dont know much about guns yet but want to learn how to shoot a pistol so I can shoot with him when he gets back.
Looking forward to learning a lot from this site.
:)

Welcome to the Insanity. You will be most welcome here.
And congrats on introducing yourself to the Correct Forum. Doing it in the Main Fourum is cetain death by insuklts.... Doing it in the Main Forum is certain death by insults. People who have claimed they were females often turn out to be lying about it. And worse.

Don't mind me, I've been up 12 straightg hourd and I'm tired. I have 2 hours ot go before my shift is over.

OK Ladies: Your turn. Make her welcome.

My girlfriend learned that the hard way. Hasn't logged on since. But she is still interested in AR's at least. Showed her how the LULA worked today, she loaded 6 new mags for me, and actually enjoyed it!!!
I think I have a keeper!

Spudgrl, Welcome. Don't let the guys get to you around here. The womens forum is our sanctuary away from General Discussion.
Good luck to your boyfriend. If you want someone to talk with IM me. I am ex mil, and our son is in Iraq right now. Know what you are going through. I have a shoulder, etc. Plus it's nice to talk with someone going through the same thing.
Tell him to Stay Safe, and Watch his 6.

I keep a rolled up newspaper by my side when I login...that's all the dogs in GD respond to!
The ones that aren't worth smacking on the nose, I ignore.

Hey all,
I'm a newbie also... I'm afraid I don't have any huge gun claims to fame... but my husband (of nearly two years!) is a real enthusiast. He has some great stuff; AR15, glock being his favs.

I've been shooting with my husband and it's neat, but I guess my favorite shooting thing to do is shoot my flintlock rifle, a 45 caliber. He and I once did a flintlock 'woods walk'. He came in first and I tied another guy for second. It might have been luck.

Hutsband is on the list a lot and I figured, I'd join 'im! In my real life I'm a HS teacher, revwar reenactor with a workshop I do in the summer (colonial toys and games), and mom of four grown up kids.

Guess I'm hoping to relate to other women who have enthusiastic husbands and want to support them and get more involved! yikes.

Thanks all... for now...
Shari
