    Excellent way to end the week !

    I know this sounds old hat. Yesterday Florida CWL arrived at last after the FULL 90 day wait.

    Today some range time with the the Tangelio Compact .40 cal for the first time. At the range, I happened to meet a professional Tactical trainer / NRA instructor looking to boost training availability in this county. Nice guy who gave me a few freebie tips and a critique. I was admittedly a bit edgy on the first 20 rounds out of the piece having not fired a semi-auto since my USCG days way back when. He fired some rounds out of my gun at a silhohette target set at 25 ft....naturally, waaay better than I had. Told me "The gun is fine...works very well." My mission today was soley to experience noise, recoil. muzzel flash and brain embed saftey features BEFORE I CC'd out in the world. Marksmanship will follow with some help.

    Right after exiting the range I shifted to CC mode in the parking lot and did a quickie grocery store trip just to see how that felt. (IWB Bianchi).. Felt fine. Avoided tugging at shirt tail and just did shopping as normal. Not Wally world, but did buy taco shells.

    Congratulations on getting your permit. And it was nice to get that little bit of training. You may want more. Best of luck.

    Congrats, it's good to get your gun fired by someone who knows what they are doing, that way you know that the problems belong to you and not the gun.

    Sorry, no go. Wally World or your CWFL is revoked. We have our standards.
