    Hello from a newbie in Phoenix!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm pretty bad at these introduction posts, but here goes :P

    I am originally from Central Illinois, where I competed in 3D archery, practiced martial arts, and shot long guns every now and then for fun. Two years ago I moved out to Phoenix, AZ with my then-girlfriend-now-fiancee and had to leave my bow and Mosin Nagant (the only gun I actually owned) behind. Well, fast forward to now and I've still got martial arts on my list of hobbies, and I've added leatherwork as well. After almost 3.5 years of being in a relationship with my fiancee, she is FINALLY convinced that she needs to get over her massive fear of guns and learn to shoot so we can own one. Her boss will be taking us shooting in a few weeks and after we are comfortable with handguns (I don't think it will take me too long, since I've used long guns and a revolver before) we will be getting a CZ-82 as our home and personal defense weapon. We plan on taking as many classes as we can find/afford, including the CCW course, so I figured I should do some online digging about concealed carry beyond what I already found in my research that led me to choosing the CZ-82. Anyway, that was long and drawn out, so I apologize. Any advice for a newbie is definitely appreciated and I look forward to lurking around here :)

    Welcome from Phoenix! If you want to replace that Mosin Nagant I was just at Bear Arms in Scottsdale (Scottsdale Rd. and Shea) and they had them for $119 I think.
