    Hi From Orlando - a familiar story.

    Hi all,

    Just introducing myself. I'm sure this is a familiar story - bought a gun for home defense (G17 Gen 4) and got a couple of private lessons on hand gun basics then did the CCW class. Intended to stop there but got the bug somewhere along the line, now at the range at least once a week and my wife rolls her eyes when I come home from the supermarket with mags like "Recoil" and "Guns & Ammo". I can see this is going to be an expensive hobby and I haven't even begun to look into rifles yet.

    Been browsing the forums for a few weeks, figured it was time to get off the sidelines and take part.
