Hi, I'm Gutpile Charlie and I just found this forum today. I live north of Tulsa and I am retired from both a corporate carrer and as administrator in education. My shooting interests have always centered around military rifles, and from this I got into service rifle competition and have traveled to Camp Perry in Ohio to compete in the National Matches on a number of occasions. I actively collect military firearms and have recently developed an interest in S&W revolvers. I've got at least 30 years experience in reloading and collecting and served in the Army reserve during the late 50's and early 60's, taking training at Fort Jackson, S.C. During my corporate life, I moved all over the western US and have a liking for both the inter-mountain west as well as the ocean. Back home here in Oklahoma I almost feel out of my element. Besides my interest in firearms, I have a degree in music and have both taught music and peformed as an instrumentalist, vocalist and conductor.
I'm very happy to find this forum, and from what little looking I've done so far, I hope to spend more than a little time here sharing and enjoying each other's posts.
Welcome aboard GC! I hail from NE Oklahoma myself... Grew up in Delaware County, just North of Grove and on Grand Lake... I Loved Oklahoma, but I like the dryness of Colorado and the lack of bugs... At least the things that bite you in the woods here are big enough you can shoot!
