In the early morning hours of December 9, 2007, 24-year-old Matthew J. Murray opened fire at the Youth With A Mission training center in Arvada, Colorado, with a pistol, killing two and wounding two others before escaping. Later that afternoon, he attacked the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with a number of firearms, killing two more people and injuring three before being shot by Jeanne Assam, a member of the church's safety team, who had been carrying a licensed firearm. Murray subsequently died from a gunshot to the head, which was inflicted either by himself or by Assam.
As some of you know, I have several guns for sale/trade on the Classifieds. Looks like I picked the wrong time to move what I'm trying to move, ads have been up for several weeks and I've had little to no interest. That changed last week when a forum member offered me an EAA Tanfoglio Witness...
A little about myself I've been into hunting and fishing and outdoors stuff since before i can remember I love deer hunting and got a 7 mag last year to reach out and touch em a bit better and I hope to get to know some of y'all :)
Hey guys what’s up! I new to the forums and semi new to firearms as well. I bought my first one about a year ago and since have acquired 7 more. I’m looking to make some new friends and find some like minded buddies to go train and plink with around the Portland area.
Nine Gun Buying Tips for the New Shooter - The Firearm Blog
Some pretty righteous stuff here. However . . . he does miss two CRITICAL POINTS (both of which are mentioned in the comments):
1. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! No matter what it takes, shoot one before you buy it. Or at least handle one...
I'm a newer shooter and just got my first pistol. Looking to do some outdoor shooting here soon.
I was wondering how safe it is to shoot a target that's on/in front of gravel? Anyone have experiences with ricochets when hitting gravel?
