Taihawk, welcome to our world. May I offer a suggestion? No disrespect intended toward your friend, but I suggest you take professional training from a qualified firearms instructor. The sooner the better, before you learn / develop bad habits that can be very difficult to break.

Absolutely no offense at all! Love the respect everybody shows each other on this board...

....but to respond to your suggestion, my buddy is a qualified instructor and is the guy who teaches the conceal and carry course for the county, in charge of leagues, etc.

Now your big problem is keeping your wallet closed.

Welcome to the obsession...
My first boyfriend took me shooting when I was 16, I had to wait 5 years before I could buy my own handgun but I've been addicted since day one and now have three guns. I love them, a lot.

Hi Taihawk,

I was wondering whether you have found your lack of depth perception to affect your shooting and if so, if you have come across any methods to compensate. I am wondering because my dad and I began shooting a few months ago and he is also blind in one eye and is still having some accuracy issues.
