Hello All,

I would like to say hello everybody. I have perused this site and I am so glad I found it. I feel I'm getting some good information and encouragement. I am especially interested in your information pertaining to reloading for lever guns.

Well once again I would like to say hello. You will be hearing from me soon in different sections of this forum. I have a lot of questions. I might even have some answers and suggestions.

Welcome here, LL

Rules are simple: be nice and join in. We're glad your here and I look forward to hearing from you. You'll find you have a lot in common with a lot of the guys here. It's the friendliest place on the net!

What do you all shoot? What levers do you have/want? Do you do any competition?

The only lever I have is a Browning BL-22, but then again, I'm in school, so once I'm out, there will be LOTS of time (and money) to build a bigger collection! :)

See you around the forum.

I like the idea of "Western Massachusetts" as much as I like "Eastern California."

Thank you all for the welcome. I have lived in western Massachusetts for 24 years now (half my life). I've met some good people here, especially at the sanctuaries - gun clubs. And to reply to jmortimer, I was born and raised in western Pennsylvania. I came from an area where gun racks in vehicles with guns was a common sight. Things just aren't the same in Mass; however, many of firearms sisters and brethren are still feverishly fighting the good fight to keep our 2nd amendment rights as intended.

Hi Matt M. Thanks for the warm welcome. My only lever action at this time is a Winchester model 94 in .30-.30 from about 1981. I also have some Mossberg shotguns, a S&W model 17 and some black powder rifles. Currently I'm not doing any competition; however, I will be getting back to bulls eye competitions soon. My dream lever actions would be pre 1964 Winchester 1894's and 1895's. I also wouldn't mind a Winchester model 12 shotgun, and S&W models 14 and 19 to match my model 17.

Hi PaulB,

I'm about 15 minutes or so away from Smith and Wesson. I've never taken the factory tour; however, that is definitely one of my future plans. The S&W store is fun and they have a good range.

Same here the better/eastern "half" at odds with the western "half." Actually about 80% of the land mass of the state is "Red." We are out numbered as evidenced by our many "progressive" gun control laws. At least I can shoot all I want on my property whcih is a rare thing here in Southern California.

It sounds like you have a similar problem to me: I live in Maryland where the city of Baltimore and a couple of counties dictate to the rest of the state. We have some pretty onerous rules, too, but you can navigate through them with a little work.
