    I recieved my permit on Friday

    It took less than a month. I plan to buy my first handgun this week. After that, it's directly to a local instructor for some one on one training for my wife and me. We're both brand spanking new to handguns so he's got his work cut out for him. Maybe it's me but, I just couldn't see not paying a certified trainer to take me from basic safety and handling to tactical shooting versus going to the range with a buddy. Nothing wrong with that of course. I just figured this is the best way for me and my wife.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Congrats on your permit and your decision to TRAIN...Very wise!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Formal training is an outstanding idea...no matter how long you do anything, training is necessary to improve...

    Good decision, and good luck!!!
