Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and new to firearms in general. Just finished taking one of our local CPL Classes and went through the registration process. Now I wait.

While I wait, I've been back to the place where I took the class and bought my first handgun, a G43 with night sight. It fits me perfectly. The next day, I hit the range and was more than thrilled with my ability to use it. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I think I went through close to 150 rounds. Given how pricey these can get, I hopped online and scouted for the best online deals to purchase bulk. I'm now waiting for my first and likely not my last 1000 round delivery: Browning and Remington 9mm FMJ.

The only down side I've found with the purchase is the lack of accessories. I bought a CC holster that I really like and I can't wait to have a chance to use it when I'm out and about. Nowadays, I run errands mostly during the days on weekends but at least with the CPL, I'll feel safer if I need to run out at night. My neighborhood is known for being safe as is the general area where I live, but last summer there was a theft only a few houses down the street from us near the dead end. It really got me thinking.

I have an Engineering background so technical stuff doesn't scare me and it's probably one of the reasons why I'm such a fast learning with anything technical. I'm also a very safety oriented person and always looking out for people and their safety. Yes, I'm one of 'those' people. :)

I hope I get a chance to learn from those of you who have contributed to the community. I've had some great experiences with car-fanatic forums but now, I turn my attention to a new found interest and likely, a life long, possibly life-saving subject.

If you'd care to correspond through the messaging system, feel free to drop a message any time. I love meeting new people.

Be safe everyone!
