Hi everybody! Just found this forum.. I'm a member over on HPFF. I don't post a lot yet. I just got my first HP 995ts about 2 months ago and have about 300 rounds through her. I'm mostly just looking to learn right now. I'll put in a few comments here and there. Just reading up and learning for now. Seems like a good group of people here. Thanks for letting me join..

Smart move. Few of us ever visit or post there.

Good choice, they are fun little rifles.

Jump right in -- always looking for a new point of view. Even if it's wrong.

:welcome: Hello and welcome from the BLUEGRASS state. This is an elite group of enthusiasts here, but luckily, their standards aren't very high and I slipped in. I've learned a lot from these folks and I'm sure you'll enjoy their expertise, humor and all round neighborly attitudes...LOL....I just cracked myself up! Too much bravo sierra. :welcome:

I think being "a little warped" is quite normal around here. Glad to have you.
