    Hello from Washington

    Hello from Washington State. I am an avid shooter that just recently decided to seriously start looking into the defensive side of using a firearm. We had an attempted break in of our home recently and now I am trying to take steps to make everything more secure.

    I shoot USPSA matches regularly and would consider myself an average shooter. I am A class in two divisions(Production and Limited).

    I just ordered a new Glock 17 for my wife. She has decided that it is time for her to learn to shoot a little better after the incident.

    I'm going to do a search here and try to find some reading material to get us started. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
