    Hi, everybody. I live in Las Vegas, am 63 years old and never owned a handgun. I just bought my first, a Glock 30 sf. Got it last week and went out this past weekend and ran its first 100 rounds through it.

    Bought the gun for home defense and a shooting hobby. First gun had to be one that would work with my wife's small hands. She instantly liked the .45 cal 30 sf. Actually I was shocked but very pleased.

    We're joining a sportsman's shooting club and plan to take both defense and shooting lessons.

    Looking forward to talking Glock with all of you and learning everything I can.

    Welcome from Vegas.

    Are you joining Desert Sportsmen? Check out Desert Hills before you do that. Their range is a little nicer for newer shooters.

    Welcome from Henderson.

    I like Boulder City Rifle & Pistol club. Members have the gate combination and can shoot 24/7/365.

    Range is open to public four days/week during normal business hours. If you get there and the public range is busy, there is an equally large "members only" range too.

    Those chiming in from Vegas, check out our local online community, nevadashooters.com if you aren't already a member. It's an awesome group of people with only a couple of resident liberals :supergrin:
