    Based out of Everett, WA. I am new firearm owner. My main goal is to educate myself about firearms, legal self defense, safety and eventually marksmanship.

    My first firearm is a Pardner Pump 12 Gauge Shotgun. It was affordable and actually very comfy at the range. I would welcome any opinions (expect that it is made in China...I Know, I know), experiences and education about shotguns, specially from and police or military backgrounds.

    Also, I'm currently awaiting my CPL and want opinions about EDC handguns, as well as any good certification courses available.

    Hope to meet some great mentors and knowledgeable people!
