Took the CCH class on January 21, 2011. They said it would be at least 10 weeks before I receive my CCH permit, and so far, this has proven an accurate estimate.
I've been a shooter/fan of shooting since the age of 4. My Dad, a former Marine and a LEO, taught me about firearms and self-defense from an early age.
Bought my first gun, a Sig P226, in 2004.
I was an occasional range-goer until my Dad passed away in 2010. I have since inherited his collection, and I've suffered a serious injury from a motorcycle accident, so while I am healing and contemplating whether to ride again (bike was not damaged), I have gotten back into shooting and guns. Bought a Glock 30 SF a couple months ago, and I've shot about 500 rounds through it so far. Love this gun!
What I really wish I could do is find a free place to shoot. Not so easy here since I don't know anyone with oodles of land. Range fees are pricey.
I'm also starting to get into reloading.
Any info you all might be able to provide would be much appreciated.

Welcome from South Carolina...
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.

If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
Train hard, live easy.
