    i'm always happy to see another new member from Washington State. welcome.


    in light of your youth and because the Shield is your first gun, i caution you to to be cautious. "a gunfight avoided, is a gunfight won." and the aftermath of even a 'found to justified' shooting incident can be terrible. see George Zimmerman - i know his hasn't been judged "justified" at this point - just using him as an example of how bad things can get. "owning a gun makes you a shooter in the same way that owning a horse makes you a rider."

    you now carry, quite literally, the power of life and death. i recommend training. there are some excellent training venues in the Puget Sound area.
