    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    With your two new guns you have the responsibility now to defend yourself (and others). Put lots of rounds downrange. Dry fire your weapons & practice drawing each time you strap them on especially if you use several different holsters & are dressed in different types of clothing. You'll always want to know where your guns are & the acceptability of them. Always be aware of each situation you find yourself in whether it's at the local grocery store or gas station or just walking down the street. Don't be a cowboy. All are simple no-brainer rules. Above all be safe & have fun!

    Thanks for all the welcomes. We have put 200 through the ppq and I love it. The ppq fits my large hands perfectly, the ergonomics are awesome. Haven't shot the xdm yet but my wife likes the feel of that more, kinda why we got both. We are definitely gonna be going to the range a bunch, looking to join one. We won't be carrying for awhile until we are very comfortable with them.
