Howdy,

My wife and I are getting an XDM 9MM for Christmas (already under the tree). Haven't fired it yet, but we've both fired several of her father's several handguns, and both had small arms training years ago in USAF boot camp. We have a shotgun and a .22 rifle and are looking forward to spending a little time on the range.

I'm an aerospace engineering professor, and a motorcycle nut, with five bikes in the garage at the moment. If it were a few degrees warmer, at least one of them would be OUT of the garage right now!

Have enjoyed reading numerous threads on this forum already and looking forward to learning from the collective experience here.

Merry Christmas!

Welcome to the forum Chris. I live about a half hour west of you in West Virginia. Good choice in guns, I think you'll really like it.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes. My wife & I are looking for a CCP class soon, and will probably add more guns after getting some good experience. We will also be shooting the .22 and the 12 gauge more often.

Still have to have time for the motorbikes, too :^}

Chris, you've got a fantastic knife store close to you, New Grahams in Bluefield VA, but then you probably already know that.

Yeah I have been there a couple of times. Where do you shoot? You ever shoot at the range at Jefferson State Park? I was there last weekend and it is a pretty nice range.
