    Hello everyone, my name is Austin (I usually go by Booth, been called that since the 7th grade). I am 22 and a c2-c4 quadriplegic due to swelling in my spinal cord that was caused by a spinal cord stroke, leaving me paralyzed from the neck down. Thankfully I have regained enough use of my arms and hands to return to shooting which came to be one of my favorite hobbies during my junior year in highschool
    I own numerous guns, probably aroud 12 or so. but I currently only own one browning, a stainless buckmark urx camper with the fiber optic sight. I have had it for a year or so after trading for it because I always wanted one! The best 22 pistol I have ever shot! I plan on buying a surplus high power at one point because I am a huge fan of all of John Browning's designs, and look up to him greatly as one of the most innovative people in the history of firearms.
    I originally joined to ask some question about an an old a-bolt 22 mag that I was trying buy, but unfortunately the owner is a bit of a hoarder, so he wouldn't sell it. I figure I should go ahead and introduce myself (even though I may not 0wn the buckmark much longer)
    I mainly focus my collection now on guns with historical value, or ones that have interesting mechanisms, and those that are kind of eclectic. I love milsurp firearms of all kinds and read constantly about the different variants of service firearms from all over the world.
    I hope I will still be accepted here even though I am not a browning collector per say ;), and look forward to being on this forum!
