    SW Florida Newbie

    Before last Friday, the last time I shot a pistol was in Navy basic 1974, and that was 6 or 7 shots with a 45 (I think 1 hit the paper)..
    Shot a Glock 22, started at 5 yds and put 5 of 1st mag in the red, went to 10 yds and 3 of 15, 15 yds and 3 more.. The good news ..all shots hit the paper.. I am hooked.. Today another 4 mags with similar results.. I am right handed but left eye dom which I think I can work out with more practice..
    I'm already thinking carry permit,and after talking to friends/ gun store personnel, about Glock 19..
    Also had my 12 ga for 15 slugs and totally shredded 2 targets at 10 & 15yds..
    What the heck was I waiting all these years for...
