    I like to target shoot with pistol / shotgun at indoor / outdoor ranges and rifles outdoors. Do not shoot competition, I just enjoy shooting. Anyone else?

    Always loved shooting. Been shooting rifles since I was 7 or so, but only just started with pistols. I want to get competitive, but time constraints just won't allow it right now.

    People think that I am weird when I tell them that I enjoy cleaning guns.

    It's funny that you would say this because I love the scent of Hoppes and have told my wife that I wish that they would use this scent in a cologne.

    I have a new found love for trap shooting. I did it as a kid and not again until recently. I remember why I dig it so much. I'm thinking of joining a league next spring.

    I have never done this but would like to try. I have four shotguns and love shooting them. I have a Stoegar side by side Double Defense twelve gauge that is very cool.

    The Guard belongs. Just saying that the money might make the difference on your time.

    Then again you could always cross over to the blue side. Bound to be a Navy Reserve unit in a commutable distance. You know what the Navy considers small arms? For one projectile it can be lifted by only four sailors without a mechanical lift. ;^) Skeet shooting takes on a whole different meaning when the small arms shell hits and leaves a crater!

    And remember this quote from America 's premier Founding Father:
    "Peace is that brief, glorious moment in history, when everybody stands around reloading!!!"
    Thomas Jefferson
