I am an IT worker by day and a gun enthusiast by night. I wanted to go into law enforcement but I got married and wouldn't you know it my priorities changed. I've fired all sorts of guns, most in a police range, the rest a few private ranges. I have yet to actually purchase my own gun and have narrowed it down to an XD 5" tactical .40. Looking forward to buying the gun in the next 6 months and participating in this forum.
