I have, until last year, been a passive supporter of RKBA. On my way home from Seattle where we had a family gathering to welcome my latest grandchild, I saw news clips about the VPI shootings during my layover in Milwaukee. My son and daughter-in-law had been students there.
Since then I have obtained my CCW license and purchased a S&W M&P 45 with Crimson Trace Lasergrips. I have been helping out at our local range during IDPA and USPSA matches while I waited for my holster and magazine holder to be delivered. I have shot in a USPSA match and plan to shoot in both. My goal is to improve my confidence and competence. I also follow the drills on Pistol-Training.com.

Good on getting out and shooting match, that'll certinly improve competence and confidence
