Re: Welcome and Thanks to S1
I'll second Ian's comments.
I've learned much at this forum and found the atmosphere pleasantly cordial.
I am a long time hunter who began investigating LR hunting less than two years ago so I'm still very much a cherry. The rifle I am just finishing is my first long range arm and being assembled primarily for LR varminting.
This project is a result of information gleaned here and some of the pieces were purchased, used, from members here. Not only have I received instruction here, I have saved a nice chunk of cash.
Prior to my investigation of LR shooting, I was one of those hunters who lambasted the LR crowd as I never took a shot beyond 300 yards and believed those who did were acting irresponsibly. My position was one of ignorance.
Now, as a proponent of LR hunting, (done responsibly, of course), I have found myself out of favour at most of the hunting sites I used to frequent.
I would imagine I'll get over it!
