    Howdy from central Texas

    Hello all,
    My wife and I have recently joined in the ranks of proud new handgun owners, and are palnning to take the concealed course by Christmas. My wife has a new XD 9mm that she loves. I went the 1911 route with a Kimber Pro Raptor 2. We took private lessons 2 weeks ago at our loacal range with the 9 mm, as the missus has never fired a gun. She was hooked . I took ownership of my Kimber this week and plan on giving it a go this weekend. I have been told by several that she will be taking the Kimber away from me in no time. Good news for me I guess. This seems like a great place with a wealth of knowledge. I look forward to learning as much as I can, and one day return the favor. Bear with me folks, and thanks in advance.

    Hanky

    Hanky, welcome from North Carolina.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
