I am new here. I was referred here by axxe55. I hope he is a member in good standing here otherwise I'm off to a bad start. ;)

I am pretty new to guns, having only been shooting about 2.5 years now and I'm no spring chicken. :( I don't own any long guns at this moment but my Dad does have a Marlin that I have shot. I don't know the exact model but I will find that information for you. I know it has a tube magazine. :eek: I don't even know if all Marlins have tube magazines or not. As you can see, I am very much a gun "newby" and I beg for your patience for my lack of knowledge and in answering my gazillion questions I always seem to have. When I first bought a gun, I joined a forum that was quite impatient with me and I didn't last there long. I now belong to another forum which I really enjoy and I'm sure I'm going to like it here, too.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention, if 'affirmative action' ever checks out this forum, I am your token female. :D

*Looks around to see who the heck he is talking about*
Let me also add I am a very new Mod on another gun forum but I have quickly learned that it really means it is a very quick way to make enemies. :( Dang, some of those members can be vicious. *cry*

Thank you so much for the warm welcome, Axxe55. I'm happy to join here and shake this place up. Has anyone here been banned yet? I hope I'm not the first one. :eek:

Hmmmm.......what do I want to post as a first poll?

ROFL..........I just noticed Axxe55 is one of the Mods. All the more reason to tear this place apart. Only kidding, Axxe. I'll behave. I sure don't want the wrath of Axxe falling upon me.

as of yet there have been no bans of any member that i know of and very few posts have only been moved to different sub forums, with the addition of new subforums. the members here are very friendly and a few you will reconize from the other forum, FTF. other than deleting a few spam replies on here, it's very laid back and civil.

okay Windy, just for you, i issued you a five minute ban! LOL! JK!:eek::D

I don't smoke cigars either...wife won't let me and while we're there, let's not even talk about the issue of a motorcycle! I'm only 53 and we've been happily married for 26 years but like I keep telling her, I'll get my bike when the girlfriend graduates from community college in the spring. She of course commented that she "understood that seniors got free tuition".

Haha......your wife is a very wise woman. You're lucky she's kept you around for 26 years. Just kidding. ;)

I met her my senior year in college and she's still my college sweetheart (despite the bike issue). Of course, no bike = more gun money...right?
I'm kind of with her on the "no bike". We women like to have our loved ones around for a while. ;)

Welcome aboard Windy. It's nice having someone to share the female point of view with this gun forum. It's great to see women get involved in shooting sports.

My sister has taken up shooting in the last year or two. Like you, she is no spring chicken, but now she loves shooting her 9mm and 20ga pump shotgun. I am encouraged that our 2nd Amend. rights might be saved as more women become shooters. The more responsible gun owners in America the better.
