Hi all!

Hi! I'd like to quickly introduce myself here, I've made this account ages ago, but never really did anything with it until now So I'm from the Netherlands, 25 years old and officially got into the FAL game two years ago when I got a 1959 BSA L1A1 which I use for sport shooting, but have had an interest in the FAL type rifles long before that. Anyway, I'm looking forward to participating on this forum
Regards,
Steven

Welcome to the asylum.

There’s plenty of knowledge and real world experience on these pages, and no matter how much you know, you’ll still learn much n

Awesome looking "Kit & Caboodle" there Steven.

Kinda makes me want to burn my scruffy-looking FALs and start over.

Welcome.
