New Guy from NorCal
« on: November 04, 2018, 07:38:37 AM »
Hi, I'm Mark and I'm a Gunaholic...  :o
Sorry, wrong meeting.  ;)
Trained as a gunsmith in the 70's and 80's, about to retire from law enforcement, and... new to the Valkyrie.
Just completed my first Valkyrie build and looking forward to dinging plates beyond 1,000 and seeing what it will do to varmints.

Mornin' Mark... Wes here from Northern Virginia (NOVA) about 5 miles from Quantico. USMC (ret). I've got a brand new 24" EABCO barrel I need to put on a PSA upper. Picked up a Lantac Dragon for the muzzle brake.  Just need to "do it". I'll be interested on how your loads work for you.
BTW, I've got to steal your line. That was just too good.
Welcome aboard. Semi-new to the forum... Really good info here.
Good shooting to you.

With gunaholics, we don't say "steps," we use paces or yards! 8)

I've known for years I have GAS. For that reason I've had to carry a check folded up in my wallet in case I run across  a gun I must have, because Gun Acquisition Syndrome is a terrible thing. This may be as bad.
