New From Illinois

Postby Flinch » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:55 pm

My nickname among those I shoot with competitively is Flinch. I started shooting in 1967 and have been a NRA member since 1968. I shot competitively for over 20 years and am a firearm instructor. I started reloading in 1988 to save money, but that didn't work out, I just shot more. I learned about shooting and reloading through trial and error, mostly error. :D

I owned a Henry Frontier for several years and sold it off to buy a Golden Boy, because I like the way they look. It won't be long before I own a Henry centerfire lever gun to keep my Golden Boy and EMF Hartford company in the gun safe.

I have already learned a thing or two from the Henry Rifle Forum and look forward to reading about other shooter's experiences.
