Hello to my fellow gun lovers and Floridians. My name is Lloyd and I'm new to this network and I am looking forward to learning, sharing information, experiences, photos, and any knowledge I can gain from fellow patriots. I am a 29 year old currently finishing up my Nursing Degree in Jacksonville, Florida. I am an 8 year veteran of the U.S. Army and a proud father. I enjoy collecting firearms and shooting with an emphasis on modern sporting rifles and NFA weapons. In addition I wanted to join any group that supports one of our nation's most prized freedoms. Gun owners are the largest political group in this country and we have to stick together to protect our rights from those that choose not to respect them. Thanks again and I look forward to enjoying this site!

New here and have already found a bunch of good intel. Name is Brad, 40 something, currently a writer/consultant, formerly a federal law enforcement agent for about 15 years. Living in N. Broward County and looking for a place to safely shoot tactically within say 1 hour or so drive. Something outdoors and private would be nice. I know... everybody else in the area is looking for the same thing. Favorite firearm depends on the application. Generally rely on the weapons I trained with. Not an expert, but have done extensive weapons training and instructor courses. Hope to learn much more here.

Outside of a dog, a gun is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to shoot.

Arguing with a liberal is like wrestling a pig in the mud. You both get dirty....and the pig loves it!

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but hollowpoints expand on impact.

I can't understand people who think that banning guns makes them safer.
They must also think that banning books makes them smarter.
