Greetings from Washington State

Well then about myself. I am 29, never married and I have 9 kids, 17hmr, .22lr, AR15 in 5.56 and 6.8spc, 25-06, .308 and .300Winmag of course there is one on the way also, the .338 edge I am building from a savage .338 long action. Though they are not real kids I pour enough money into feeding/building them every month they might as well be. I am currently serving in my eighth and final year in the United States Coast Guard and plan on going back to college for Mechanical Engineering. I guess that is what I like about distance shooting, the engineering and math that go into being able to place a small piece of metal within one minute of angle at over 100 yards is just intriguing. I have already gleaned plenty of useful information about gunsmithing and shooting from this site and I look forward to learning more and heaven forbid maybe contribute something.

    You'll have to show us a picture of the family when the new one comes...
