    New guy

    Hey guys,
    Ever since I was very very young I've liked guns and often shot my granfather's pellet gun with him at soda cans. I searched for a good, quality gun forum on yahoo and this is what I found and liked. I will be making my first gun purchase(purchases) within the next week or two because I feel like a sitting duck, but not for long . One of my friends (in his early 30's), recently got me into shooting at the gun range and as I expected, I really enjoy not just the security of a firearm, but also the hobby of target shooting.

    Although I am only 18 years old of age, I have already been living off on my own with my fiance for two years. In Florida, we are pretty gun-friendly, so that is a good thing. Unfortunately, to get my CCW, I have to be 21. However, I will be getting weapon(s) to protect our house, as well as my car.

    I have somewhat of a unique background. I dropped out of college to pursue intensifying my game as a professional poker player. I am widely known across the internet and will net nearly 7 figures this calendar year.

    Anyways, I will be thoroughly searching the forums for all sorts of information that I would like to gather before making my first purchase(s) as well as continue learning more and more.

    Hopefully I can contribute to this forum in the future and I am well received/liked here.

    Thanks,

    -Boosted J

    Welcome to the forum!

    It probably seems like 21 will never come, but once it does, let me tell you, things start to speed up.

    There's lot's of good gun info here and some good folks as well.

    It's great that you're getting in some quality range time now & I know that you'll be carrying as soon as you legally can. That's great.
