I'm new here and new to firearms. I learned to shoot with my dad when I was a kid but I didn't shoot for many years until I received a Springfield XD subcompact 9mm for Christmas from my husband. I can't say I'm 100% happy with it but it sparked a passion that I had long forgotten. I took my Basic Pistol course, joined Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club and get out to the range as often as possible. I also have a 1953 Colt Woodsman that my dad gave to me a couple months ago and I love it. It's actually the first gun I ever shot when I was six years-old and was a very cool gift. It's saving me a ton of money, too.
I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can. I don't know all the proper lingo and terminology but I'm a quick study. I'm taking as many classes as I can and am looking forward to the Personal Protection in the Home class I'm signed up for at the end of the month.
I'm not into politics but I do believe that we all have the right to keep and bear arms. My CPL should be arriving any day now and I'm trying to decide what would be my best carry gun. I definitely need to shoot a few more pistols before I make my decision but I am always open to suggestions.
I'm glad I found this forum and look forward to meeting you guys!
