Welcome aboard The 'Hide. Most O/T (Off Topic) subjects are dealt with on the S-2 forum. Marines are easy, you treat us decent, we treat you decent.
We generally like to know what sort of shooting you're into, and a lot of folks will appreciate your filling in the blanks about your personal info in your user profile.
We like showing off by answering question. Often you'll get a number of different approaches to a question. Take it in stride, all it really means is that there's usually more'n one way to defur any given feline.
Sometimes you'll run afoul of folks who like to argue. Don't let the bastards wear ya down. You take the bait, you pick up the gauntlet, you're on your own. No-one will think the less of you for behaving like a gentleman.
