Just thought id register and read :) theres certainly a lot of good stuff on this forum...
Im originally a brit, but am a US resident, working at the moment in Europe, but returning to the states, TX in fact in a week. Im a total newbie... never fired a pistol (have shot hunting rifles).. Im looking to purchase my first handgun, do some pistol training, and the concealed handgun permit.Im looking towards getting a gun for defence but i figure shooting is also a good way to meet some decent people and do something fun in my free time...
Im still getting my head round the info there seems to be so much haha
once again hi :)
