Just picked up a new to me Lee Enfield ; next post will be in that section. Knew very little about them and still reading up, lots of history. I'm sure like many here I discovered this site because of my military/firearm/shooting fascination. I have lots of hobbies, from a 1963 Ford Galaxie restoration/nastalgic drags in progress to casting and loading my own ammo among my favorites.

Hope to be of some assistance, but if anything else meet new friends!

Welcome aboard! The Enfield's are easy to fall for as they're so perty.

Greetings

I used to live near Peoria IL. The Fort Defiance Rifle & Pistol Club at Wyoming IL was my home range.

They have Highpower matches (200 yards with pits) and small bore prone matches if you're interested. Nice bunch of folks.
