My name is Stan. I am a Law Enforcement Officer and Desert Storm Army Veteran that has been hunting and shooting for a majority of my life. I actually tripped across this site while doing a google search about the .17 HMR and liked some of the experience and info that I found here. I own some top of the line shotguns and pistols and a few decent rifles. Right now I am looking for that "one" rifle that will fit my wish for a superbly accurate, out of the box plinking / target / varmint rifle that I won't have to take out a second mortgage for. Anyway, I'm glad to be a new member of your community. I am from Southwest Ohio and I look forward to learning as much as possible here.
