I did a lot of handgun shooting back in the 60's while in the U.S.A.F and early 70's as a civilian. After marriage and a couple of children I quit shooting and sold off most of my firearms. I also used to hunt almost everything but as I've gotten older I've given up everything except deer hunting. I dearly love smoked venison sausage! I recently retired and decided to get back into handgunning so I've joined the local gun club and purchased several handguns. I've found a person can learn a lot by checking out these firearms forums.
