Glad to find this forum. I found it when looking for info about my .45cal Jukar long rifle. I picked it up at a yardsale years ago. Now that I am retired I want to repair and learn to fire it. I grew up with guns with my dad, we et game as our primary meat source. After the US Army, marriage, college, and career I dirifted away from gun use. My mother sold all dad's guns when he died without including me. I really love now living in Kentucky and woodworking. So anyway, HOWDY Y'ALL.

Welcome Lester, from Florida, the Sunshine state. Like Rooter I enjoy woodworking and also have a friend from Paducah Ky. Actually he is more than a friend, he is my youngest son. Hope you enjoy the Firearms Forum:)
