    Introductions... (Florida)

    Greetings, all... first time poster, long time lurker... well, at least a couple weeks before I took my CCW permit class. I'm not convinced I got proper instruction at my class, and I wanted to expand my knowledge online and enhance my skills at the range.

    After years of shooting other people's guns here and there, I decided to get my permit and purchase some weapons. The only gun in my house has been a .22 bolt action rifle (sans bolt) that belonged to my Dad and hasn't been fired since the 60's, but I am now proud Papa to a Sig Sauer P220 45ACP and a Taurus PT 745 PRO, also in 45 (standardizing my bullets). I've shot a variety of calibers, both revolvers and semis... but I gotta say, this Sig feels CUSTOM in my hand... it seems to fit PERFECTLY, much better than a Colt Commander I once shot. The first time I took it to the range, having not done any shooting this century, I put my first 6 right in the heart of a silhouette target at about 20-25 feet. This is a truly elegant machine...

    The Taurus, I'm not so sure about... it seems to fire low, for some reason. I like the feel, the small size, and the weight, but it seems like if I pull this baby, I'm gonna cap someone in the groin if they are more than 20 feet away... LOL!

    Anyways, I'm looking forward to gaining some of the wisdom I've seen displayed here over the last few weeks... the tone and information here is second to none...
