Hi all,
I am so glad to find a California forum. I have been spending some time on another board and the folks are great there, but it is always nice to be able to talk to local people.

I am really new to firearms, but I have jumped in with both feet. I bought a Ruger MKII from a friend and got hooked on shooting. It didn't take long before I started renting larger caliber handguns at the range. I avoided test firing the Kimbers because of the price, and I settled on a Springfield XD45. After shooting around 600 rounds with the XD, I decided to rent the Kimber just to see the difference. Needless to say, I am now the proud owner of a Kimber Custom CDP II. More accurately, I am an owner in the waiting period of said weapon.

I have also decided to reload my own ammo, so I bought a Hornaday LNL and associated equipment that should be arriving around the middle of April. I am hoping to get some good advice when I get started, and maybe even get to watch someone else reload some. That is if any of you live close enough and are willing to let me watch. (I am in Williams near Sacramento) I will of course supply the pizza and soda :D

I look forward to picking your brains.
