Nor Cal, where we still love outdoor sports and don't lean way to left in all things we do. I got my first Winchester 9422 when I was 13 and living in San Jose with my family that was some what shocked that I not only was interested in guns but actually bought one. Then I started spending a lot of time in Trinity County on a ranch a family friend had and feel in love with the rugged outdoors and guns. That was 50 years ago and my love of guns has always been Old Winchesters, preferably with octagon barrels. I have been able to collect several over the years and still love them. I'm a country dweller now and can shoot all I want on the property I own and nobody around seems to give a hoot that I like to shoot. it nice to see a community of other gun lovers, and I'm new to the world of forums and chats but look forward to getting engaged with some of the other members and talking about vintage guns.
