    My bestfriend and I went to the range together for the first time. I brought my xdm 9mm 5.25, and she brought her s&w 40 tact. The first two pics are of my first time shooting her gun at about 20 ft. The rest are me laying it down with my xdm. What a great day we had together and we got to meet some really nice guys who were full of useful info.:D

    My first time shooting a .40 and 3rd shooting my 9mm. I have to admit I acted like a little school girl when I shot the .40 jumping up and down, naughty language, and a couple hell yeahs...I loved it and will probably be looking at a xd40 soon.:p

    Yeah it is safe to say we stuck out like a sore thumb, but everybody was really nice and was open to help out if needed.

    Most of us who have been shooting for awhile love to introduce new people to it, and help out others with less experience. It is one of the joys of firearms.

    Well, being new I just want to say thank :p. I have yet to run into anybody that is arrogant or makes me feel like an idiot which is great when entering into something new.

    Don't mention it. I would say the family of gun owners is one of the most tight knit out of any common interest group. Although we sometimes disagree about tactics, guns, etc... we all love the sport and/or self defense training and when push comes to shove we have eachothers backs. The only people I have ever had a problem with is employees at the gun store. Some of them think they are the end all be all haha. Welcome to the family!

    Grouping look very good. The best part is that you had a good time and are ready to head out again. I love seein' the look on a new shooters face when they realize that they can hit the target. It gets even better for me when I see them begin to "run 'n gun" for the first time. You may never head down that path, but I hope that you do. It opens up a whole new dimension in your shooting skills and gives you confidence that you can handle anything that comes your way in a defensive situation. If you decide to do that just make sure that you get a good instructor to show you the ropes. Best of luck and keep training.

    Than you would have loved to see my reaction:) one of my happier moments in life. Not much has excited or intriged me more than shooting my gun.

    Run 'n gun...that sounds like a blast, and Im sure it would be a path I would love to take in the future. I will have to find out more about it.
