Re: Do I have a Longe Range Gun?

I believe you have a good foundation to build on, depending upon your needs and your willingness to put forth the time to tune yourself as well.

By the way welcome to the board. I hope you enjoy it here, as I have found the members to be very helpful and friendly for the most part.

Also BUFFALOBOB if I can ask without hijaching post where can we get a list of rules, as the only ones I am aware of are:

What are the rules?

Shadowman

Here is how you view the rules that you had to agree to to become a memeber

1. Get you computer to this site but "DO NOT LOGIN"

2. Up at the top of the page in orange text will be "NEW USER"

3. Click on it and it will bring you to the "Board
Rules"

4. You will notice down at the bottom there is the little clicky thing that says "I agree"


Why do I know this? Because this is the first forum that I ever joined and I was very worried about online security and what kind of people were on such forums etc. My desire to meet and talk to people who were doing openly the kind of hunting I once did overcame my worries. I have been very happy here. You can go over to introductions and you will see that I am not an easy going nice laid back kind of person. I try very very hard to keep my normal personality in check and off the forum. What I learn from you and others is the stuff I wished I knew 25 years ago. The information is worth more to me than my ego but it is not worth my self respect.

P.S.

I probably should not have made that post up there, I just was trying to do Ankeny a favor and keep him out of trouble because he seems like a nice person.
