I looked for a thread dedicated to introductions, but couldn't find one. I guess "The Bear Pit" would be the right place for mine then, save for the fact that even the name "The Bear Pit" makes me think it'll be tough to fit in here.

Basically, my knowledge on weapons is slim to none. I want to learn, so that's how I accidently found my way here. I'm hoping if I keep quiet and pay attention I might be able to learn a thing or two. Maybe I'll get lucky and find someone willing to answer all my dumb questions.

Personal info, my name is Chelsea. I'm female, yes. I'm a baby, pretty young. I've never used a weapon in my life, unless you count my fists! Haha, or throwing shuriken for fun. I've got no idea if I'm going to make it on this forum, but I won't hold my breath.

    Don't worry you'll fit right in as long as you keep a thick skin. Also make sure to hang out in the Shout Box whenever possible. It's pretty entertaining there.

    This forum is overwhelmingly male, and hence women are always lauded and approached with the same typical sexual curiosity they can expect anytime they're surrounded by a bunch of men.

    If you're genuinely interested in learning to shoot this is a good place for that.

    Enjoy the show, and welcome.

    I'm right here, haha. I'm not gone. I just got a little distracted. And don't worry, I'm not scared...yet. :p I might look sweet, but I'm a bit tougher than most girls my age, or most women in general.

    I am sure that will get her attention......perhaps not the desired effect but her attention none the less.

    What do you guys want to know? Like I said, I'm Chelsea. I'm from New Jersey. NO I don't have a Jersey accent and we're nothing like the show Jersey Shore. I play too many video games in my spare time. I've been playing part-time mom to my nephew since I was 14. I've got a lot of military friends. Always been a bit of a tomboy. If there's anything else you want to know, ask!

    Seriously? Do we have to put that in my intro topic? You've already said it once, that's just kind of overboard, in my honest opinion.

    Your honest opinion doesn't count. In case you aren't aware, any interaction with sexual overtones to a minor (you) is very illegal and has no (read ZERO) place here. We welcome your presence here and will do everything we can to help teach you and answer your questions however that willingness to help does come at a price and that price is our overly cautious reminders.

    My apologize, Mike, I was unaware that screaming the fact that I am a 17 year old female would help reduce people's comments about it.

    Minx, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it many of the guys here will act like they are 16; and just like with 16 year olds drawing attention to something will only accelerate exacerbate the issue.

    If your willing to have a little thick skin you will find that many of these guys will also go above and beyond to help you in any way they can with regards to LR shooting. Keeping this in mind may go a long way in your stay here.
