Hey all!

After wanting one for several years, I picked up a Steyr AUG A3M1 about a year ago as my first privately owned firearm! I must say that I have been having a blast with it!

I'm 28 years old, and am originally from Nashville, TN. I have lived in Fairbanks, AK, and am now currently in El Paso, TX. I'm here to learn about the newest developments in the realm of bullpups, and to share experiences with others.
 
Below is a "glamor shot" of my rifle that I took at my local shooting range. I'm no photographer; I just got lucky.  Grin

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

I first became aware of the Steyr AUG's existence in 2004 through, of all things, the video game Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. I remember seeing it and thinking how cool and futuristic it looked! I found out in 2008 that you could actually buy one, and I first handled one in a gun shop in 2015; it just felt right when pressed into my shoulder.

The range is Butterfield Trail Shooting Range outside of Los Cruces, NM. It is about an hour drive for me, but the scenery is nice, and there is a LOT of shooting space. Plus, it isn't too heavily trafficked; on the day that I took the photo I had the entire long range (up to 1000 yards known distance) to myself for about three hours. Definitely worth a look if you live in the area.
