Lived in Seattle for a couple of years, having moved from rural Michigan. I've been surprised by my coworkers and others reactions of astonishment that I own and shoot firearms for recreation. It was always just a part of life in the midwest so I never thought it was different anywhere else.
Anyway, I certainly picked the wrong time (or very right time) to get into building AR15's, but luckily I just got one fully together a few nights back and a 2nd lower in the stages of being built. With all the political fallout the past few months I thought it important to join the local community to help fight for our 2a rights as citizens.
Looking forward to participating in this community!
