I've been reading the forums as a non-member for a while now, so I thought I would join and be all official. I grew up shooting .22 rifles and the occasional shotgun, but until probably January of this year I hadn't shot anything in a few years. I found out that one of my coworkers is actually CCW instructor, so I signed up for a class and bought myself a Glock 30. I took the class, got my license, and try to get to the range as often as time and money permit.... .45 rounds aren't exactly cheap... I maybe should have thought that through a little better, but, I digress. I am contemplating getting myself a 9mm semi-auto, so I'm reading a lot of reviews on the various Glock 9mms, and also I'm interesting the S&W M&P line. I also plan on getting a 12 guage pump for a HD setup. I look forward to reading and learning as much as I can on this site.
