Hey all, I'm Erin, live in the suburbs of Phx, AZ. I'm 28, and last week, i purchased my first firearm. It's a Glock 23. I've shot firearms before, always been a handgun fan. I've always loved the sport of shooting targets, quick draws, and what not, so I'd love to get into those at some point. I've not been able to make it out to a range or the desert to shoot my Glock yet, but hopefully soon. So far, I've taken it apart a few times, studying the interior of it. I've also began open carrying, which is quite the experience lol. The mixed reactions are definitely interesting. A goal of mine is however to go thru some instruction, I'd like to be able to feel more confident and knowledgeable about the Glock and things related to shooting. I know the basics, but i also know there's room for more. I also would like to obtain my CCW even tho it's not required here in AZ.
Thanks for reading!
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

Congrats on the Glock for your first purchase...it takes many people lots of purchases to finally find out about Glock.
