    Shooting is too much fun!

    This is such a great forum, I've sent just one message previously asking about holsters for Kahr PM9 and CW9 and got 4 responses which really helped! I have to admit, I am hooked on the entire issue of concealed carry. I've taken multiple martial arts classes and have always practiced safe habits. Unfortunately I have lived in Florida for over 30 years and am finding that this has become a scary place. Not a day goes by without a home invasion, car jacking, or other violent personal action. My wife and I have taken the appropriate courses and now have our concealed permits. We applied the same time and it took nearly a month longer for my wife to receive hers than it took to get mine, and she is truly a better, and more conscientious person than I am - go figure. I now have an addiction - I want guns! Bought 5 over the past 3 months and now want a P6 Sig that local dealers have from West Germany. We have shot over 2000 rounds since we have started our interest and had to buy a Browning Buckmark Camper so I can shoot less expensive ammunition and still keep going. What would you, on this forum recommend for our next step in training? I am considering Massad Ayoob's LF1 course but wanted to see if anyone knew of any Florida courses that were as good.
