    Hello All.

    Hey everyone, I'm 17 and greatly interested in handguns (revolvers especially) and plan on conceal carrying when I turn 21. Until then I'm just practicing to become a better shooter, and learn as much as I can about gun safety. Any help or tips from you guys would be appreciated!

    Welcome!

    Sybrid22 and I have gone to the range together during his past two visits to South Carolina, shooting .22, 9mm, .40 and .45. He is a mature 17 year old whom I have had the pleasure of getting to know over the years. He is eager to learn and accepts instruction and constructive critisism much to his benefit, and far greater than that of his peers. We have discussed safety a lot, which can never be understated, and he is a pretty darn good shot. He was even excited to learn how to clean a firearm, which in my opinion tells me he isn't in this just to punch holes or make things go "bang."

    You can learn a lot from this board. Ask questions, and continue to be safe!

    With that said, welcome!

    Greetings my young friend, from Rocky Top Tennessee. A dumb question is one pertaining to the subject that you have and fail to ask. Ask and you will receive.
