    Howdy from north Texas

    I have been involved in shooting sports, mostly rifle/shotgun for most of my life. I was a boy scout leader while my 2 sons were scouts for many years. They have now completed their time in scouting and we were looking for a new activity to share together. My sons have wanted to get involved in pistol shooting so here we are. I am in the process of getting my conceal and carry permit. Joined a local range, and will go through all the training with my boys. So when they turn 21 they can get their permits if they so choose. I hope that this forum will help me become better educated in this endeavor.
