Hello from Illinois
« on: February 16, 2019, 11:15:36 PM »
Just wanted to say hello and look forward to much interesting reading in the forum.  Hope to learn as much as I can and if possible to help others also. I enjoy shooting my air guns very much and upgrading them quite often! This hobby can easily become quite expensive!!!  LOL.  Wish everyone a goodnight and fun shooting.  Thanks   Ken

Welcome to GTA Ken. I lived in just north of Decatur from 1998 to 2005. Not crazy about the gun laws there but the folks were some of the friendliest I have ever met. I just joined GTA and I have learned these guys are super, loaded with knowledge and eager to share it. And if you need help spending money you have come to the right place.
