Hello, I've been on CC for a while but finally decided to introduce my self. I was recommended from TheFiringLine and I must say this is by far the friendliest gun forum I've visited. I'm 20 and getting married in May. I just found out there is a shooting range across the street from where we will live. Guess I know where most of my spending $$$ will be spent. Maybe I can get a job there or a nearby gunstore.

I'm not much of a hunter and my interests in firearms lean more towards CCWs, self defense, and historical/military. I have a GLOCK 26 and a Ruger MK II (actually they're my fiance's b/c she's 21). I also have 2 870s, a Remington .22 and a Springfield .410. I will take my CHL class in May and hopefully I can start competing in handgun competitions when I get a GLOCK 17.

It certainly is a great forum. I've learned so much here. And I do intend to get a 1911, I'm in love with Kimber's Tactical series especially the Pro II. After a GLOCK 17 that will be my next handgun. GLOCK and 1911 are my favorite platforms.

Yeah my bride-to-be is great, and too beautiful for me. She even tolerates my gun addiction!

Welcome to the forum. And, Congrats on the up coming wedding too.
Ya know, she might become more than tolerant of your gun habit some day.
I sprung a little “gift” on my wife one day. It was a Henry Rifle. A youth .22 version. (It was actually for my 12 year old son, but a 12 year old can’t “own” a gun so she was to be the legal owner.) Well, her eyes lit up, and she has been my best shooting partner ever since. (She actually talked me into my Kimber when I was starting to waver over $$.)
So, this could turn out good for you. Just don’t wait 18 years like I did.
