    I'd like to introduce myself ans I have recently joined the forum. Pertinent data would be:life long resident of Illinois, married an Illinois girl 49 years ago,we have two children who don't live in Illinois (shows good sense, I think), hobbies are guitars and playing music, mid-sized motorcycles, golf. Shooting is something I have enjoyed since I was a kid, but I no longer hunt.

    We bought an SR9, mainly for home defense purposes. It's a very good pistol and I enjoy shooting it. As time went on, it became clear to me that if having one gun is good, having more would be better. So I added a Mark III pistol and a 1022 rifle to the collection. Owning these two 22's has brought back the fun I had as a kid with similar small bore weapons. These things are great fun. Of course the ammunition shortage that exists with 22lr ammo is a problem.

    It was great to find this forum. I'm sure I am going to enjoy being a member.:)
