Hello from Santa Monica, CA. Just got my first gun (as a civilist) and looking forward to get active in your forum. My only shooting experiences going back to my army time. But I always liked it and always wanted to do some recreational shooting. Unfortunately, where I used to live it is very difficult to almost impossible to own a gun. Now I live in California and so I decided to finally treat myself with a nice HK USP compact 9mm.
By the way, does anyone know some real good indoor and outdoor ranges in the greater L.A. area? I only now the indoor range near LAX and I believe their is nothing closer to Santa Monica.
