    Hello from York, PA...

    Hi all,

    My name is Chris, and I'm from York, PA. Up until a year ago, I had no experience with firearms at all. Then one day I decided that I'd like to be able to protect my family and home if the need ever came.

    So I began researching home defense firearms, and finally settled on a Remington 870P (18" blued barrel and walnut furniture). Then I thought I better find a place to learn to shoot, and I found a local skeet/trap range. That's when I got addicted to skeet. I used my 870P for while, but then stepped up to a Browning Citori XS Sporting. I just got my first 25 straight about a month ago. Now my 870P is pretty-much a home defense gun, keep cruiser ready.

    About 5 months ago, I purchased my first handgun... a S&W 5946 (full size, stainless, 9mm, DAO) from CDNN. It was in like new condition, and I really love it. I think this was an ideal first handgun because it was nice and heavy to reduce felt recoil, was a cheap caliber to shoot, and the DAO trigger helped teach me good trigger control. Since then, I also purchased a Springfield 1911-A1 Mil-Spec, which was a purchase more out of reverence to the pistol's design and history than practical use. I love this pistol as well.

    I've taken the NRA Basic Pistol class (10 hours), and will be looking for more self defense handgun training in the near future. I just got my PA LTCF so I can protect myself and loved ones when out in public. So now I'm seriously looking for my first CCW piece, which I'll be posting about shortly in the other section of this forum.

    Thanks for reading, and the wealth of information I've already learned from a lot of you!

    Chris
