    New from VA

    Good evening,
    A short story... I learned to shoot on a rifle range as a kid and always enjoyed the challenge. But life got in the way as I got older and I kind of forgot about it. As an adult, I have lived in several communist states including Rhode Island, Mass. and California and guns were more trouble than necessary.

    But after moving back home to Virginia, I started shooting sporting clays with buddies and my wife and I decided to have a kid... and I decided to start taking our personal safety seriously.

    I got a CHP, and started acquiring firearms for carry and I started working on my marksmanship again.

    Now I'm just learning how to comfortably and safely protect what's most dear...
