    Been following the website for a while. I mostly shoot varmints at longish range, but enjoy reading about the big boomers too.gun)

    AHHHHHHH, but thats how it starts............ see how far you can smoke a p-dog with a 22lr, then the flood gates open and you are pushing limmits with your hunting rifle......... your hooked before you knew it :D. Glad to have you aboard.

    My wife would probably agree with that. According to her I have too many toys dedicated strictly to long range stuff. :D

    No such thing. Have you asked her why the bathroom sink has so dang much stuff on it that you cant use it, and 3/4 of the cupboards in it are full of her stuff?:D, now thats ''to much'', but a ''few'' toys here and there in your 1/4 of the closet......
    Been there, but she understands. I only get one hobby cause its about all I can afford being a daddy and a husband, so she's cool with it.
    Oh and days like today she realy appreciates my hobby....... We went to the ranch to visit grandma and shoot sagerats. Ya, you can guess who shot my custom 10/22 and and the Colt 22LR revolver, and who got the Henery lever with open sights.:D hahahaha We stacked the sage rats like cordwood today tho. And my 4 year old and 2 year old got to shoot too, so it was an Awesome day.
    Give her time, she'll come around:) Mine did.

    I think I can safely say it's more like a quarter of the garage (maybe just an 1/8th I haven't measured the floor space.) It's amazing how much stuff you can can accumulate in 20+ years. I keep telling her they spontaneously reproduce:D

    I live out East of Colorado Springs a little ways. It is still to close to a bunch of people but it's better then living in town.
