    just got back from my first time shooting a handgun. i rented a hk usp 9mm compact. i liked the gun alot. i tried the glock 19 my boss rented and didnt like the trigger pull at all. ill probably be posting in this forum alot more having experienced it. range master also said i did quiet well for a first timer, and had consistant groupings.

    any tips for a newbie for shooting only??
    im going to look into purchasing at a later date, im goign to try to get to the range once a week and try some different guns out and see what i feel comfortablke with the most.

    tips for a newbie- don't jerk the trigger, be smooth with it; don't anticipate the recoil, let it surprise you; try out different guns and stances to see which one you like/are better with; practice, practice, practice.

    good luck and welcome to the fold.
