who introduced you to this great competitive sport of shooting? as for me, i used to feel dreadful about guns. then one day, a friend of mine who owns a lot of guns decided to sell me his HK USP 9mm. At first i was hesitant coz i really didnt believe in guns before in whatever form or purpose. But then, my friend was insistent and told me that he needed money badly, he said that he would use it for his sick brother. So, to cut the long story short, i got persuaded and bought the HK USP 9mm. Lo and behold, he used the money not for his sick brother but to buy an m16a2 rifle which he needed to add for his collection. and then i tested in the range and at first i was kinda scared handling the gun, fearing it might backfire and blow up a hole in my head, things like that..hehe. but then when i got to use it, i became more drawn to it that i visited the range often, almost daily. it has the sense of power in it. My friend just reminded me though to keep it a secret specially to people i dont know for security reasons. simply stated, do not brag about it. I did and then, as time passed by i began to buy a long gun, an m16a2 rifle too, and eventually i ended up owning a Glock 23 mariner. i bought accessories and stuff and then i decided to join a competition in armscor which i began to enjoy. now, im looking forward to join IDPA shooting competitions just to improve my skills in handling the glock. loved shooting that pistol, every minute of it.
