    Haven't been on here much as I've been waiting to get everything in order for my first gun purchase.

    Tomorrow night I'll be the owner of a Ruger .22 slabside. Got in to work this morning and one of the guys I work with gave me my keys to the gunclub as I'm now the newest member. Can't wait to get started in the world of guns and shooting. (was looking for a new hobby and this really interested me).

    Also going to purchase a 12 guage and a 30/30 in the next few months so I can work on all sorts of different skills at the range.

    Just excited and wanted to "type it outloud":D

    Congratulations on your newest purchase!

    Regarding purchasing a 30-30, I STRONGLY recommend either the Winchester 94 or the Marlin 336. You're going to love a 30-30 lever action. There's nothing that compares (other than a good ol' revolver) to the feeling you get with a lever action :D.

    Congratulations! But one word of caution, shooting is addictive. ;)

    Congrats on the new Ruger! They are nice pistols. I am a Marlin 336 fan but do not rule out the Henry Rifles. They are very nice and made in the USA.

    BS! Crack is addictive. Shooting is much worse...
