New from North Carolina, USA

Postby OverHill » Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:44 pm

I live near Raleigh, NC. I’m pushing 80 years old so not too active collecting or shooting at this point, however, I started firearm collecting as a teenager with a WWII P35 pistol an uncle cut from an unfortunate German officer (I still have the pistol) and was a licensed collector for many years. I was a USA paratrooper in the early to mid-1960s starting with the 2nd504th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg, N.C. and later with the 2nd503rd Infantry regiment all around the Far East. I have experience with the M1 rifle including competition shooting, the M14 rifle, and believe it or not the M2 carbine. In addition, I’ve fired many rounds through the Chinese Type56 rifle (AK47) and the Type56 carbine (SKS) during my military tour.

Welcome to MAH overhill, I'm not too active collecting myself but am fortunate enough to still be shooting very regularly.
