Hello from Surprise, AZ

Hi from sunny AZ! Moved here from Colorado last year to get away from snow. My buddy said, hey you're in Arizona now, you need to get a gun. He took me out shooting and i really enjoyed it. Have also been out shooting in the desert under the open sky which is really nice. Last fall I purchased a Ruger Mark IV target to learn how to handle and care for a gun. Today I purchased a Ruger American Rimfire 22 lr. I was looking for some tips on cleaning the new rifle and decided I better join the forum. Hopefully I can contribute some helpful info and pics for other new gun owners as I go along. Thanks in advance for the help others will give me!

New folks all the time, Welcome from NH. You'll need to ask the more rifle minded folks about the rifle stuff, but glad to meet you.

Welcome to Surprise. I live here also. It's a great place to live.

If you want to spend a good time at the range go to Ben Avery Range off of I-17 and Carefree Hwy. They are closed this week until Thursday do to the Virus.

Shooter's World is also close. It's on 89th Ave and Cactus.

What kind of shooting do you enjoy? I may be able to steer you in the right direction for matches.
