I'm a member of many knife and firearm forums and decided to join you all here.
While I do not have a carry permit and live in California (Kalifornia?), I hope someday to have a carry permit and want to learn as much as possible from you all.
My firearm experience is primarily target shooting with a variety of pistols and revolvers in calibers such as: .22, .380, 9mm, .357/.38, and .45LC. (That and hunting upland game birds with both over/under and pump shotguns since I was old enough to get a hunting license.)
Sometime in the next year or two, I'd like to take a course at either Gunsite or ThunderRanch and hone my skills a bit. In the meantime, 'hello' to you all and hope to chat with more of you in the months to come.
