    Hello From Virginia

    Hello everyone. I found this forum via a Google search. I am not totally new to guns, however I do not own one nor have I ever owned one. I shoot with my cousin now and then (he is a gun smith on the side), and I know some basics such as gun safety and basic cleaning. My goal from this forum is to get advice for my first handgun, which I will post about in that part of the forum. I want to learn more about handguns in general but am not interested in owning many guns. For now I only want one....my first gun.

    I have a tendency to be the "if it aint broke...dont fix it" kinda guy. Heck I have a 1994 Ford. LOL For me if I can find a gun that meets my needs.....I most likely will not try and keep shopping for something better. That is just me. Why buy the next big thing is razors if I am happy with a DE...brush...and shave soap? That is how I think.

    I come down to Hampton Roads area often.
    Me and girlfriend like to do a beach weekend regularly...even in winter.
    I also like to shoot at the Norfolk County Rifle Range on IDPA days. They are in Chesapeake.
    I personally don't like the AP Arms/Lynnhaven Range....you have to wait 4 seconds between trigger pulls.....REALLLY?
    But definitely The-Armory is THE place for ammo and maybe guns as well.

    Welcome....maybe see you at the range sometime.
