Hiya(s) from Northern Illinois, Home of the Polar Vortex.

Hiya Folks,

New Member Intro. I'm a long time shooter and reloader. I like IPSC, HighPower, Benchrest, Skeet/Clays, and especially shooting steel at unknown/unmarked ranges.

I reload 9x19, .45 ACP, .357 Mag, ,45 Colt, .223 Rem, .22-250, 6mm BR Norma, .270 Win, and .308 Win. I also shoot black powder.

I'm a NRA and ISRA Member, and an ISRA Range Member. I see others here, who must live in this godforsaken state. If you go to the ISRA Range, you likely know me.

Interests: Motorcycles. Shooting sports. Women who smile. Dark matter and dark energy. Two seat convertible roadsters. V8(s). Ford Mustangs. German shepherds. Photography. 1911s. Aircraft. Nylons with the seam down the back. Astronomy. Anything involving engineering. And New Zealand...is mine.

I just got my first non-Gov't 1911, and my first Kimber, an Aegis Ultra II. I'm hoping John Moses will forgive the 9x19 thing, should I meet him in that 'Heaven' thing, folks told me so much about, when I was a kid.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Send Margaritas. I'm also a member of the ISRA but I've never been out to the range in Bonfield Illinois.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee! Very informative introduction, we share a lot of the same interest's. For my first 9mm pistol I went with the Kimber Sapphire Ultra but have also been looking at the Aegis for more of an every day range pistol.
We love pics.
