Right now, range, defense, after yesterday SHTF, and maybe do some IDPA down the road. Need to take some more advanced training classes first. With the right instructor, they are just too much fun, and invaluable!

Taking the UT, AZ, WI and FL CCW class next month, awaiting IL to get out of the stone-age so we can start shooting the bad guys rather than being political cannon fodder. Hopefully by then we'll have some direction in IL, but I'll apply for UT, AZ and WI (I'm near WI and travel there). No rush to CC, but was going to go back and shoot a number of guns again when I get some $$$ saved back up. Being lefty does require some testing for sure. Looking forward to trying the P227 Carry.

I'm a left hand shooter also. Most it's no problem with ejection. The few that did a slight tilt sent it somewhere besides my forehead. Most the Sigs and FN pistols I've shot really sling brass so it was not a problem.
