New guy here...

I take it that this is the forum to introduce yourself to everyone, if you're a new guy.

A bit about me...

I'm currently serving as an active duty Marine infantryman (just got back from Afghanistan about 6 weeks ago), am stationed down here in NC, but am originally from Missouri.

I started to get into long range shooting and that sort of thing when I was about, but never got too serious about it until recently. This weekend, I am headed home to check out my .300 win mag Savage 110 BA that gets in tomorrow-- definitely going to be a good time from everything I have read on it.

In addition, this weekend, I am installing a Kydex cheek riser on my Savage 10FP, and giving it a camo coat of sorts with that ultra flat Krylon spray paint. I'll be sure to post pictures of that adventure-- I've never painted a rifle before, hopefully it turns out well. I read about a dozen different threads on it here and was considering going with DuraCoat, but after having emailed them a rather extensive and detailed series of questions, they sent me several back with about the worst attitude towards a customer one could possibly impart in an email. That's one thing I can't stand-- poor customer service, so I made the decision that with my low income (thank you Uncle Sam!), I'd give it a shot with Krylon and never visit Houts Enterprises websites again.

About more about me and my shooting habits-- one of my favorite rifles is a 3 years Remington 700 VTR in .308. That sucker is a tackdriver. For quite a while, my favorite model rifle was undoubtedly the 700, but two months ago, I invested in that Savage 10FP. And what can I say fellas, I am a total convert.

Really looking forward to contributing to some of the great discussions here and learning everything I can. Hope to hear from yall soon. In addition, if any of you have questions about what exactly is going on across the pond, what I experienced, my friends experienced, and anything related-- feel free to message me and I'll be happy to reply and possibly send pictures if they are applicable.

+1 on that!! Big thanks!!

Welcome to LRH, tons of great guys and info here!! And a welcome to the dark side of the barrel nut, just wait till the barrel swapping bug hits, that 110 BA would make a nice 338 EDGE.

Re: New guy here...

Hi Mate and a BIG welcome to you and glad to see you made it home safe!

I'm sure you will love the Savage 110BA sounds like a real 'kick-butt' bit of kit.

I too own the Savage 10FP and have nothing but praise for it - I love it. Price, quality, accuracy all there, just mad.

You will find a nice piccy of my rig here in the new introduction section.

Since that photo, I've upgrade the optics to a nice new NightForce NXS 5.5-22 X 50 Mil Radian MLR reticle scope and my word - it is damn fine sir!

I really like the HS Precision stock on the 10FP, fits really nice for me.

Check this recent photo of my Savage at our first I.P.S.C. Rifle Match:



I was shooting in 'Open Division' due to mag capacity and muzzle brake.

Enjoy your new rifle

Cheers.
