I was registered on the old CU, but rarely posted.

I frequent over 15 online gun boards, and am a republican.

Hello and welcome.

15 gun boards? Cool. What's a G3 by the way?

I shoot revolvers mostly and favor shotguns but I enjoy all the techie talk about different weapons. You can get a lot of good information there.

Glad you're here.

A G3 is a German made battle rifle, made by Heckler and Koch.

The semi-auto version (commonly owned by civilians) is the HK-91.

Before the G3, the nazi doctor that developed the rifles operating system had fled to Spain. His rifle was adopted there before the Germans were licensed to produce the rifle for their military.

My "G3" is actually a CETME that was reconstituted from a Spainish military surplus parts set.


I used to not know the difference between the two, so I named myself "g3shooter".

The name grew on me, so even after I learned the difference I still used it.

G3shooter is a good name. Thanks for the info.

I've shot revolvers so long that it's hard to get me to shoot an autoloader. I have a Beretta Model 92 but more often than not when I go to the range I carry an old thumb buster.

I learned to shoot on single action revolvers. They just feel right in my hand. I did go modern for my self defence weapons and have double action revolvers. :D
