    Ok, so Im back now. Mom didnt make it, we had company. I went, I really enjoyed it, some of it really was a review, since I have had my share of time on the range, but I wanted to get started out right with handguns. I borrowed a Glock17 9mm from the instructor, everyone else had brought .22lr pistols. We got some range time in, only got a chance to shoot about 30 rounds, it got cold and rainy, so we called it a day. 5 hours, $15 , good education from some fun gun-lovers.

    That is great man, I just got back from the range too. I put 300 rounds through my Glock 32c and 300 rounds through my S&W 640 which I decided that after today I am getting rid of. Keep us updated!

    I think that now I am seriously going to find me a handgun. I am pretty much set on a 9mm, as it is cheap to feed at the range, and I still can count on it as a defensive pistol. Gonna see if I can get a loan from my parents.
