G'Day everyone!

I stumbled across this site when looking for information as a prospective new gun owner, and I was blown away by some of the knowledge (and the ability to relay it in a clear/concise manner)

So, creating an account and getting into the mix was a necessity.

About me - While I (will be) new to the ownership of a firearm, I am definitely not a noob when it comes to firearms in general. Of course I had several rifles (pump action BB as well as bolt action 22) when I was a kid. My parents had possession of a 9mm that I used several times as well as a (very dangerous) 'Saturday Night Special' revolver. My experience was diversified even more during my time in the Navy with the VBSS team as well as ASF and SAT/BAF details (both of which required the carrying of a sidearm or shotgun) As well as the continual quals that come with it.

So I guess I am ahead of the curve with the 'comfortability' and 'safety' aspects of owning a firearm, yet I never felt the need to own one personally. -Until now...

Recently some things in my life have changed *cough*divorce*cough* that have all but 'forced' me to relocate from my once 'safe' neighborhood to a place that could be considered more of a 'target' as its located in one of the more economically depressed areas of the city I live in. Well, that and the fact that I am no longer in a relationship that is not necessarily 'anti-gun' but moreso 'you wont do it unless I approve' mentality.

So I guess along with some of the major changes that are happening in my life (some within my control, others not) I came to the conclusion that owning a firearm would be in my best interests, as well as give me a release and something to do that I enjoy. (i.e. going to the range to shoot)

I am looking forward to learning as much as I possibly can, and eventually being able to share some of my knowledge/stories that I have picked up along the way as well.

Thanks DangerField!

Yeah, that is usually forum etiquette but it is surprising to see how many folks can be lacking in that department. Treating others as I would like to be treated is pretty much how I live my life.

The cool thing about online forums though is the 'ignore' button is merely a click away :tongue:
