    N.G. here just wanting to say hello. I'm retired military and still trying to make up for some lost time by hunting and shooting as much as I can. I enjoy deer and hog hunting the most, but always enjoy trying something new as well.

    I also enjoy collecting guns, mostly rifles in big game calibers. Back into lever rifles recently and enjoying shooting and hunting with some big bores, 45-70, .444, .450, etc.

    Anyway, thanks for letting me stop by and a great day to all !
