Hi all:

I just wanted to put up a post to say "Hi". I've just emigrated from Britain to the US and am now resident in Henderson NV.

As I guess most of you know, firearms regulation is pretty strict in the UK, so it's a blessed relief to have bought my first handgun over here! In the UK I owned shotguns, but even they were restricted to 2 shots. My 3 day wait is up tomorrow, and I will be collecting my Kimber Pro-carry 1911; although I've already put 400 rounds through it! To those who fight for the rights you all enjoy for free gun ownership: Thanks!

I'd really like to become more involved in the Vegas area shooting scene, so if you see a lost-looking Brit at any of the ranges, please point me in the right direction! And if anyone in the Henderson area could take the time to show me how to strip and clean a 1911, I will express my gratitude with beer. Heck, even if you can't help with the 1911, give me a shout and I'll get the first round in.

Thanks all!

Welcome another Brit now there is 2 of us just another 249 million and we will be back up to strength here.

I'm glad you came over and posted, it is a good site. Let me know what you hear about that Wolf ammo...

Welcome. We always have room for another bloke to lend some culture to this place. Good luck and keep them all in the ten ring.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 7:19:13 PM EDT
Stop accusing us of introducing culture, I resemble that remark
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 7:30:35 PM EDT
This seems like a friendly place to hang out already hanks
I'll try to get myself out and about and noticed (in a good way), so please do say hi if you see me. The truck's license plate is the same as my handle on here (or at least it will be when DMV send it to me...).

All comments about us Brits losing the war are welcomed... having come over here, it's only fair that we let you use what history you've got . Anyway, the only culture I brought with me can be cleared up by a good doctor!

OH SHIT! THE BRIT IS HERE!

You chose a good state to settle. Nevada is one of the very few "Free Gun" states left.

Welcome to the Land of the Free, BigDex...

Be Safe.

What is this 3-day wait you speak of?

I had been told that there was a 3 day wait before you could take home the first handgun you purchase in Nevada. Is that wrong? No worries in either event, as I can collect it in 2 hours anyway h=85%

I most certainly am. To be honest, the paperwork is quite easy for me as my father is from Buffalo, and I therefore am a US citizen.

Welcome aboard BidDex!

I live here in Henderson as well and want to invite you to go shooting some time real soon. I go shooting with another member, Dorsai (he lives here in Henderson as well), usually on Saturday mornings/afternoons.

If you are interested in building an AK47 for yourself, we will be doing another build at my house shortly.

thanks,
Ron

Dex A ding dong or Ho Ho as refered to on here is like a cadbury's chocolate mini roll or like one of the round chocolate covered mini cakes of the same recipe we used to get in the UK.

As for the 3 day wait for your first handgun that is so in Las Vegas should of bought from Henderson no such rule, but anyway now you have a Blue Card it wont happen again

Oh yeah.... Rex has already gotten to experience the wonderful customer service that one can only recieve at American Shooter supply. The did him real nice, considering he is new to the country and this was his first pistol. Real outstanding way o treat a customer, right Rex?
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 7:52:22 AM EDT
Yeah, I got the rough end of a deal there!

Still, nobody made me buy from them and I could have shopped around if I had realised they were so expensive! Nobodies fault but my own. Although their business strategy is a little interesting, considering I will be buying more guns and a lot more ammo.... just not from them! I guess they're kinda unpopular with the locals?

Live and Learn. Speaking of which, what the hell is a Ding Dong? (Apologies to those offended by my repeated blasphemy)

Welcome Dex!

You're the immigrant the likes of which we could use MORE of!

If you ever roll up North, we'll have to give you a proper tour of the Beautiful end of Nevada, and properly introduce you to Ding-Dongs

Thanks for the sentiments GryphonX, and thanks for explaining the Ding Dong issue...

Ding Dongs are available at most local stores including Albertsons near my house

AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!

I've had the Guns'N'Roses version of "Sympathy for the Devil" running through my head all morning, and I only just realized why

.........

the title of this thread!

The power of suggestion is a BITCH!



Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul and faith
And I was ’round when jesus christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around st. petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a general’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
Who killed the kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me lucifer
’cause I’m in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah
What’s me name
Tell me, baby, what’s my name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

Ding dong's are associated with Northern Nevada Arfcommers. It is an inside joke here on this forum.

Not just a "free gun state" NV has the best state laws period . there are a lot of states that are gun friendly but you have to buy your booze at a "state run" liquor store or cant even buy a damn porn mag.
