Car/Gun Enthusiast - New from North Metro

Postby carbide on Tue Jan 27, 2015 10:18 pm

Hello fellow gun lovers,

I'm Kevin from the Northern Suburbs of the Twin Cities. I came to here to find like minded people who love guns and want to shoot them!

A little about me:
I work in that quality side of the high precision manufacturing sector programming CMMs - I get to work with a few MAJOR gun manufacturers - and via the engineering department, even more neat things.
I love working with my hands, I originally went to school to be a machinist and in the past worked as one for awhile.
While I was in school, I worked as an automotive technician for about 5 years.
I enjoy racing cars at BIR, Rockfalls, and Prokart haha

I have interest in modern sporting weapons based on military ones, and I enjoy shooting as well as introducing shooting to new people.

Let's just say my favorite long gun at the moment is my Arsenal SLR-101S Milled 7.62x39 with a Aimpoint Comp ML4 attached with a Midwest Industries 30mm side scope mount.

Video of the first gun I ever bought, ending a watermelon's life. And yes don't mind my chicken wing arm. Breaking her in and had a failure to feed. Video here: Image

A fun toy of mine :geek:
