Oh my goodness! Welcomes from all around the country!
My first weapons purchase was a S&W 617 (.22LR-10 shot) a really nice "fun" gun and good for practicing "fun"damentals.
My next purchase... S&W M&P 9 EZ (I have some arthritis in my hands, but doing hand exercises and have gained considerable strength!)
Last week, I purchased the S&W M&P 15-22. .22LR ammo is cheap and available so I figured my first rifle should take advantage of that.
As you can see, I'm definitely making up for lost time. But I'm having a blast! (Ooops. Really, no pun intended.)
Again, thanks for all the "Welcomes" and well wishes!
