Well, Jim and I have become interested in acquiring some hand guns and have help from Bob and from John and Des in making our decisions. Dave has also given us some good advise. When we were out snowshoeing over Christmas I became a little concerned about becoming cougar food, so we talked all the way home and decided to make some purchases. We went to the shooting range by ourselves, with John and Des, and went over to talk to Bob. Jim tried out several caliburs and decided on a Glock .40 and I went with a Glock 9mm. Then at the gun show this past Saturday, we got another one--a .22 semi automatic pistol. We bought a gun safe and took the class for a concealed permit, so we are feeling better about being out in the wild on our 4-wheelers or snowshoeing in case we meet some kind of problem. It has been interesting, to say the least. I've learned a lot about guns and ammo and still have a lot to learn. Bob reloads his own shells and is going to teach us how to do it. He has all the fancy equipment.
We hope you are all doing well. Don't forget to add your posts here once in awhile. We can be more personal here than on Facebook, although I have to say that I do enjoy Facebook!
