Shot my first match this morning at the Brooklyn Sportsmans' Club in Brooklyn, MI. Used my XD(m) .40. I expected to be put in a goup with other newbs but instead each new shooter was put in with a group of experienced shooters so we could learn more quickly. My main focus was on learning the range rules and handling my gun safely. The guys were extremely helpful and friendly. I had a super time and look forward to a return trip.
