Hi all, I was directed to this site by RangerEric. I am new to the area as I moved here from South Dakota all by my lonesome a few months ago for a promotion. I live in Keizer, OR now. Before I moved here, my gun experience consisted of owning a shotgun and having to pay someone to clean it. Since I have been here and had a lot of free time on my hands from a lack of a social network I started to educate myself. This education led me to build an AR-15, which was really enjoyable and I recently picked up Sig P229 .40S&W. So now I have these great pieces, with next to no practical experience on how to use them effectively. I am wanting to get a membership at the Albany gun club, but I was hoping to find someone to bring me as a guest first so I could check it out. Well, that is a good start. Have a great one!
