Welcome from upstate New York, and thank you for your service!!
Welcome from Maine. I hope Mills doesn't screw you up too badly.Well, we'll be in Maine in a couple weeks at least. Currently I'm in Ukraine with my wife having successfully completed her immy visa process. If the queen of Maine will allow it, she'll get to see her first USA parade and fireworks on the 4th.
I'm 63 and a retired USAF MSgt. I was an MP in W. Germany then an SP and ended up as an AGE wrench bender in The MAINEiacs (101st ARW).
I've been around firearms since I was big enough to hold my dad's H&R Pioneer 22 (that HE bought -sans parental knowledge- when he was 12, which I think was 1944). I was an Expert paper puncher with my M16, but that's about all I was ever expert at.
I have a rebarrel question, which I will try to post in the appropriate forum.
Hope to learn much from the group and maybe share some in the future.
