    Hello from Iowa

    Hey all. I'm fairly new to the shooting sports. I did a little hunting as a teen, but then didn't touch a firearm for almost 30 years. Now I'm trying to make up for lost time. I've also managed to get my wife involved, and she has 2 pistols of her own. I'm fortunate that I have an indoor pistol range within 2 miles, and a rifle range about 20 minutes away.
    I conceal carry everyday, and just yesterday traded my LC9 for an M&P Shield 9. I ran across this forum while researching holsters, and it looks like there's a lot of content for me to learn from here.

    Thanks for the welcomes! A lot of states represented here. I'm glad to live in a gun-friendly state. It must be frustrating to live with very restrictive gun laws.
