    Howdy from NC

    Just purchased my 1st gun 2 days ago and joining the forum to learn from all of you. Unlike most, have not spent any time around firearms with the exception of shooting a few muzzle loaders owned by my neighbor when I was a kid (about 35 years ago) and shooting my buddies pistol a few times about 20 years ago.. Trying to find a good orientation class in the Raleigh, NC area now.. looking down the road to go for my conceal carry permit, but have a long way to go...

    Be patient with the newbie.. willing to learn..

    From Raleigh too, near the airport.

    Welcome, There are a few places to shoot.

    I took my CCW class at http://www.facebook.com/mike.otoole1...axpipe=1&__a=8

    I took it there because the price was cheaper and they had openings when I wanted to take the class. A bit of a drive to Wendel but worth it.

    You might want to check out the triangle open carry meetup group too.
    great people talking guns etc....
