Hey y'all, good to meet you. As you all can see my username's Shinoda and I hail from the Midwestern United States.

I am extremely new to handguns, my only prior experience with shooting guns being my Boy Scout merit badges in Rifle Shooting and Shotgun Shooting. However, both of those (plus my time shooting muzzleloaders, which is amazing if you haven't tried them) really instilled a deeply held love of guns.

Given the gun-fearing views of many of my friends, I decided to become a gun-owner to both indulge my own interest and sort of set myself up as a "bridge" between the gun-loving and gun-fearing communities I am a part of. In some small way, I want to show people that guns are not death machines and gun-owners are not all psychos. I want people to know what I've know since I was a teenager - that guns are tools and gun owners are just regular people who use them.

I also started a personal project to upgrade a West German Sig Sauer P226, which I talk about in this post. If you have any advice, please share! I need it, haha. One scan of that post will show you I am really out of my area of expertise. But I like challenges and modifying my possessions to make them my own, so I don't mind.

Looking forward to some good discussions guys! Peace.

Welcome from Northern Italy to our forum.
Classic collectible "USGI 1911s", full size "SIG Sauers" and "CZ" sport pistols have always been among my favourite guns.
For the range I have owned several CZs, TANFOGLIOs and half a dozen SIG Sauers; great guns especially older German-proofed ones, the SIG Sauer P226 to me is probably the most reliable pistol that I have owned in over 38 years of shooting handguns, and I've seen enough makes and models, in all service calibers, to know what to trust and what not to.
I collected for years, then I realized that a huge pile of guns wasn't making my life any better, so I thinned my collection, took a hiatus from it, and decided to enjoy what I had; so for now no more new guns, but since I've always been a 1911 aficionado I'll keep my 1911s, a couple of SIGs, the Tanfoglio and the CZ for the range.
I never stop learning, and I love learning with enthusiasm.
After more than 38 years of guns-ownership and reloading, I still enjoy shooting steel plates and at IDPA ranges twice a week.
JMO this is one of the best gun forums among the several I belong to, to me it's quite a learning experience. hope you'll enjoy your time here.

Life is good.
