    Hi, I'm Jimmy from Illinois. I've just purchased my first handgun, a lovely G19. It's great except for how with the current market, I can't afford to shoot it much. I think I have just about 150 rounds through it (but a lot more dry-fire practice learning this trigger :embarassed:).

    I did, however, find a place where I may be able to consistently get practice rounds for half of what I had been paying, so I see a lot more shooting in the future.

    I really enjoy learning about firearms of all kinds, and hope to learn much more here. Gun forums are usually extremely conservative areas with lots of current/former policemen and other mostly conservative groups... I've had one problem on another site for saying something that did not jive with the popular opinion, and was booted for it (and it was not disrespectful, just a differing opinion). I hope this place doesn't prove to be the same, and welcomes all polite sharing of ideas and opinions.

    Nice to meet you all.
    Jimmy

    Welcome and congrats... Your politicians finally put together a not-completely-full-of-bs concealed carry laws that are on the Governors desk. You might be able to legally carry soon.

    I'd just like to say that I've perused the site today more than in all the time since I've signed up, and I love this board!

    Pros and cons...

    People are quick to insult you if they disagree with you or even if the sense the slightest disagreement on your behalf.

    The butthurt is strong here... So take everything with a grain of salt.

    Even simple posts like "recommend a small carry gun, no .380 please" type of posts get offended .380 owners all rude and they go on the offensive.

    Thank you for all the welcomes. The site's a good one. Two things I've learned is that this place has many who can offer great information/help and even possible friendship. Also, the butthurt can indeed be very strong! :rofl:
