    Post Hi Everybody, another newbie here

    Hi Everybody,
    The dreaded introduction...

    My interest in shooting is all my Father's fault.
    He took me out on the moor in the early 1970's when I was 5 ro 6 years old and I haven't stopped since.
    I can handle a shotgun and airguns also have their place in my collection, but I have always preferred using a rifle.
    I have had an FAC since I was 17 or so.
    I shot my first Red Stag up in Ross-shire a couple of months after finishing my A-Levels with an Estate Mauser 66 in .270.
    More recently I have been "protecting the trees" in the Forrestry nearer home in Lancashire, adding Roe and Sika to the species list.

    I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, but have ended up doing IT support to earn a living.
    My team Keeps the CAD/CAM systems going for a local Aerospace company.

    My engineering background and inquisitive mind mean that I'm just as interested in how guns work as shooting them.
    I'm not frightened by "home gunsmithing" - all LEGAL mind you - and enjoy working on and customising my guns.

    Happy Hunting.
