New to firearms adult here. When I was young my father and I spent a lot of time hunting and shooting together. So I once had experience with handling and shooting but realize that all that is gone now and need to relearn. Now that I'm much older with a family, I want to have the skills and confidence to safely protect my home and loved ones. Recently, I've taken a safety class with Blackstone; Those folks are great. They recommended this this site. Any encouragement or tips for a newbie are welcome and appreciated. Glad to be here.
