New guy from Southern Utah
« on: July 10, 2021, 08:11:03 AM »
Hey all- Obligatory intro! I'm Steve, and I'm from Utah, if you didn't deduce that from my screen name. I'm retired military and a private security contractor now. My first real centerfire rifle was an SKS, and after many years I've kind of come full circle and found my way back to them. I only have a couple but they're fun rifles and I look forward to reading through the forum and learning from you guys.

Steve, Welcome from Kentucky/Colorado!!! Glad things have full circle.  A fair amount of us here are former/retired military.  Like you, my first center fire was an SKS but back in 1980 I couldn't find ammo for it and it languished in my closet while I was in Okinawa.  Came back to CONUS and used it as a partial trade for a High Power.  Wish I still had both wink1.

Welcome from the "Show Me...I can't own a gun" state. :)
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.
