    hi from a newbie :)

    Hi there,
    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

    anyway,
    once again hi :)

    Welcome to the forum.
    Fee free to join right in. No need to just read.
    We like "present and former" Brits here.
    We sure do also have more than a few great and friendly Texans that are active on DefensiveCarry.
    If you want to meet some great people from the TX area then start by participating on DefensiveCarry
    You can't make friends here if you just read - so jump right on in.
