As others have already said, I was looking for something else and stumbled upon this forum. Lurked for awhile and decided I wanted to be a part of this group.

I live in Evansville which is the largest small town around. ~175,000 people in the county and most of us are usually one degree of separation from each other. I'm 55 with wife, two kids & two dogs. (The dogs listen to me the best.) I teach 8th grade Science here in town.

I've always enjoyed shooting. Started deer hunting in my thirties. A couple of years back a buddy took me to the Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot where I bought my first milsurplus. Mosin Nagant 91-30. Other interests are Scouts, camping, boating, computers and home handyman projects.

Welcome aboard, I'm new also, so we can hang out in the corner together and observe the salty older board members nervously.

Science teacher eh? I love a bit of chemistry here and there. Send me a PM if you wanna talk shop.

Oh and I also love milsurps more than any man should love an inanimate object. Unforunately my (combination of mine and my fathers, which I use more than him) collection only contains:

Enfields:
SMLE
No4Mk1 unfired
No5
P14 (eddystone.303)

Mauser:
Colombian contract 30-06

MN:
1941 izzy 91/30,
Chinese type 53 (M44 knockoff)

Misc:
Boys .55 AT Rifle
82mm Mortar... Yeah... Funny story with that one.

Your town sounds nice, I am from Hobart, Tasmania; about 200,000, outlying rural areas are great for shooting.
