Wow, that looks like a lot of fun. I was an observer, checking it out. I got lucky and found a local group a few miles from my home that meets every week: http://tbspc.org/ There were about 20 people, mostly men, mostly LEO, all very nice. At age 43, I was one of the youngest there. Some of them had really nice guns. My small SIG 239 9mm will get me started, but I'm already thinking of getting something with a longer barrel, and more firepower. It's only money I have everything but the belt and some clip holsters. I plan to attend next week. I think I just found a new way to spend my money and time I'm really looking forward to it. They all said it's very addicting. Looks like a good addiction to me.
