Had a great time today and I learned a lot from the Range Master he really took his time to show me the basics and most importantly about safety.

My 1st HG was a Beretta 92F maybe 25 years ago. Before CC was needed. I have like 10 acres of woods, so I took it out to shoot some cans.

Fired off one round and the noise (no 'ears') and recoil scared the crap outa me!

Walked back to the house ... put the 92F away ... drove down to the LGS and purchased a Browning Buck Mark ,22. Learned to shoot it well, qualified well enough and then got my CC several years later with the 92F 9 mm.

Still have both guns and enjoy shooting both.

Enjoy the sport!

Nice pistol and it looks like you did well at the range. They are fun shooters. Enjoy, Ed

Congratulations. You picked an excellent pistol and it will serve you well.
