    Thanks for all the advice out there. I just got back from the range and it was great. I wish I could figure how to post a pic. I brought home my target. It's probably terrible but being a new shooter I was thrilled just to go bang bang. I shot 100 rounds. I started to drift to the left after I moved the target to 40 feet from 25 but that was me I think because My eye protection was fogging up and I was a little shaky. The guy in the next lane was shooting a cannon that was shaking me out of my shoes.

    The folks at the range were real cool to me and as I'm fiding out from this forum, that is pretty typical for gun loving people. The gun felt and fired good. The fellow at the range said something about not firing until the gun was "dry" if your using the weapon for defense. Is it harmful (to the gun) to empty the gun or is that because its quiker to drop the mag and insert a new one, then you don't have to rack it I guess?

    I did get the Hoppes and the Outers too (yep at Wal-mart)

    I am glad to hear it went bang for you. I recommend now that you arrange to take a 1 hour or so class in the use and maintenance of pistols. One or more of your local ranges (try Caswell's in Mesa) should be able to set you up for a class. This Forum can only help you so far then you need to get some formal training. IMHO

    Enjoy

    Don't forget, I am a desert rat also. I stay about 1 1/2 miles from Caswells when I drop off the mountain.

    Enjoy your new Toy and endeavor.

    I think I'll see if it is online thanks.

    I just gave my gun its first good cleaning since i put 200 rds thru it yesterday and i had a hard time getting out all those little grains in the slide and the frame. I'm not sure how rough you can get I dont want to mess up the innards and I also noticed my soft "bore brush" from an Outers kit was leaving fibers behind which I had to try and pick out.
