    Born & Raised in Southern CA, then got out

    I'd like to take this chance to introduce myself. I was born and raised in Southern California by an "Anti-Gun" far-left mother and a moderate, highly pro-2A Father. They managed to raise me, about as far-right as people can be. With a mother like that i had to teach myself to shoot at a young age, with my Father stepping in once i didn't live under my mother's roof.

    I'm a fine shot with a 1911-frame and a good shot with pretty much anything else toted in a holster, although i grew up on long-arms.

    Joined the Navy in June '06, and haven't looked back since. In that time I have acquired an old Kimber Custom II, my trusty SA Mil-Spec, and various AR-15s.

    I'm due to move to Groton, CT this week, and if anyone in the New England area has any tips on the area, ranges, etc. I'd love to get your input.

    Welcome from South Carolina..
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
