    Hello
    I’m am new here. I have been a diesel and hydraulics tech for 39 years. I grew up in and still live in the country.
    I am a bit apprehensive about being here. When I was young, my uncle was home invaded. I didn’t go well. I will spare details but they new whi he was from him being at gun shows. There were many who invaded all at once from many entrances. I wish not to have that issue replied to. I thank in advance for that.
    Thank you for having me.

    Don't post your home address and you'll be just fine. Or... procure a couple dozen claymores and then post away.

    All jokes aside welcome to the forum!

    Thank you for the warm welcome Scout ( second I saw your name, my mechanic brain instantly went to, huh? Don’t work on many gassers but,, pretty sure the International Scout did not have a 308 cubic inch engine. Split second later, said to self,, he is referencing some .308 carbine ).
    Washington Co is nice, my sister and husband have a horse farm there, a dental office there and one in Hancock.

    Why do you not want to have that home invasion situation discussed?

    If you're apprehensive based on what happened to your uncle, why not let it out and discuss.

    You ever hear about AI? I have.
    :D
    Because I wish not to. I respectfully asked that I not be questioned about it yet you are asking. Yes, I have heard of artificial intelligence. I see no relation to it, me or my post.

    :thumbsup: It's a shooter's forum. Standard measurements are primarily in caliber and grains. My BIL has a thing for the other variety of Scouts... and an old one waiting to be rebuilt in a garage on his property, IIRC.

    You haven't yet. Please click on the first couple of links in Dave MP's message. Then refer to post #12 in this thread. Stick around for a while and it will all start to make sense.

    Except for MD gun laws. They will never make sense.
