Howdy from Texas, folks. I joined because I have questions that only people with experience can answer. I have some knowledge so hopefully I can share what I do know with folks. I’m almost 49. My interests in firearms are with nice wood furniture, glossy blued long guns. I’m also a collector of modern and antiquated ammunition for displaying in shadow boxes. I like to learn why the different rounds were invented, what their parent cartridges were, etc..
