Hey everyone! Im originally from New Jersey, live in South Florida during my breaks and currently go to school at Florida State University:D I am new to the gun world; a bunch of my buddies are Army ROTC, Rangers, Green Beret, and EOD Navy. I have been to the range with them countless amounts of times and fire off guns that they own. Ive been looking for a pistol for about a year now (taking time to make money to purchase a pistol comfortably) and really just fell in love with the feel of the Springfield XD 9mm w/ 4inch barrel. I shot well with it, in my hands it felt comfortable and most importantly, natural. So I made my decision to purchase this pistol and did it yesterday:)! So excited! My pistol should be in my hands by Wednesday, and from there I wil be traveling back to South Florida to hit up some ranges while on summer break! I want to eventually join the U.S. Marine Corps after my graduation at school and felt as though this would be a good starter gun to get the feel of and taking care of. My parents arent thrilled about guns or the military (although they agree with the military, just dont want me joining) so Im pretty new to this atmosphere. This is a little about me! Questions, comments, helpful tips will greatly be appreciated! Thanks much if you read! and cant wait to start talking to some gun enthusiasts:razz:!

Or so they say! ;) How is that practically no one in the military tells you that they are clerks, mechanics, truck drivers, etc?

Welcome from Tallahassee/Miami, FL

I recently graduated from Florida State University with my Bachelors and Masters. I used to go to the public range up there all the time. Now I am stuck in Miami, definitely not the same but not bad.

Hope you enjoy it, if you have any questions let me know.
