    Well, the best way to gain knowledge is to read and ask questions. Most members are here to help so don't be afraid to ask! Welcome!

    Welcome! I was a beginner once, but then, at age six, I was a beginner at most everything.

    Lots of kidding around here, but also some good solid advice. Just don't trust any one who offers you free candy.

    Hello and welcome! Without prior knowledge of your experience level, let me be the first to recommend that you check out the NRA Gun Safety checklist, found at http://training.nra.org/nra-gun-safety-rules.aspx
    My second piece of advice is to learn what the difference between a clip and a magazine is. I have seen people get razzed pretty good over that one! Don't be afraid to ask questions, most everyone on this site is more than happy to help. Welcome to the family!

    Number one thing after making the decision to be "one of us" by acquiring guns is getting training. They are not magic talismans that ward off evil by merely placing them in your belt as you head out the door or in your nightstand drawer after a long hard day.

    Come see me when you are ready. We will get you on the right path.

    Ní dhéanfaidh aon ní a d'fhéadfadh a bheith níos fírinneach go sin. :)
