Welcome aboard sir.
I myself happen to be a real gun nut as well. You know you're a gun nut when you have a reloading press clamped to the head of your bed. I have names for each of my firearms and a very special rifle sleeps next to me and I kiss her goodnight before I go to sleep. (I will deny any accusation of being crazy)
I too was initially brought here in search of great gun mods.
Also, since you had an account on the old VGU, you might want to see about getting veteran status. Here's more information if you haven't already read it. http://www.gunetwork.org/t1871-promotions-how-to-get-mod-access#
I'm just one of those big gun nuts
