    New to the forum, but not new to OCing.

    Like the forum, hope to be a help not a burden.

    The avatar to the left is my everyday OC.


    This is my "in the field" OC.

    Welcome to the forum. It is true that the NM boards can be kind of quiet, just depends what is going on in the state and what Mc Donalds is causing troubles :P

    Nice shotgun, I carry one like that in my truck (Mossbergs Maverick 88 with short barrel and pistol grip). I used to carry my AK around when my wife would drive, but a lot of people thought it was a fake or a pellet gun. Had someone try to jump in and take it, but got a real shock when I racked it and he could see the 7.62 being chambered.

    Different story for shotguns, because if they see it, no one ever thinks it is one of those "air soft" rifles, plus I do not care what language you speak or what country you are from, when you rack a 12 gauge it says the same thing in any language.

    DAMN SickTag...
    Im not sure why some one would try to jump in and grab a AK out of a truck....but good for you on being quick thinking and on the defense. (I know that is how we should all be but people are so often unaware of the situation so good to hear of someone who is on point)
    Glad to hear that this is the way some of yinz roll out here...
    I think Im gonna like it out here...

    Well thanks all for the welcome.

    That BUG up there is actually my wifes, but she is kinda leary of the recoil, so it's mostly mine. Winchester mdl 1300 in 12ga.(home defender they called it). It has got to be the lightest darned pump I have ever held, which don't help the recoil any.

    Darn I don't know what the heck I was thinking. Heck I should have guessed it since I spent my teenage years hanging out at the Sonic on El Paseo and the one on North Valley drive!!

    I'm not sure what you are asking or where the comment is directed?

    If you are asking about the six shooter at the top, well it is my field carry.
    It is a Uberti Cattleman's SAA .45 long colt. I carry this one when hiking, camping, fishing and etc.

    The one for daily carry is a Steoger Cougar 8000, 9mm. Originally made with the name Beretta.

    The post with the Winchester 1300 pump shotgun is my BUG, or back up gun. If the other 2 don't do the job this one will!

    Thanks for all the responses folks, hope we can make the OC continue to grow in NM.
