Hey Fellow gun enthusiasts!

I'm a fairly new gun owner, but have enjoyed firearms since I was a kid and shot BB guns, pellet guns, and 22's while I was in Scouts. I've shot my best friend's .38 a few times and finally at his and my friend who owns gun shop in Idaho encouragement, I now own a Rock Island Armory 1911 .45ACP in which I traded out all the pins, springs, and grips for Wilson Combat's Bullet Proof™ firing pin, firing pin stop, mag release, etc., a Canik TP9SA in Desert tan, and my most recent purchase was a v-e-r-y lightly used Taurus Model 66 in which I am currently doing a "fluff and buff" job and replacing the trigger and hammer springs. I am waiting for the hand spring that I launched somewhere in my carpeted dining room.

Welcome from Northern Illinois! I have had parts go AWOL also, some people do their gunsmithing inside of a large transparent plastic bag for that reason...I've never been that smart. :rolleyes:

For a 'fairly new gun owner' you're getting a good start on a collection (MSM would call what you've already got an 'arsenal').

(BTW -- in my day it was the BOY Scouts).

Welcome to the forum!

Wow, for someone who calls himself a "fairly new gun owner", seems like you're diving right into the deep end.
