Hey guys, completely new to the forum and new to the world of guns. I've always wanted a firearm since I was a kid and to build my skill up to shoot. After moving up from archery, I figured it was time. Luckily, I have many friends who shoot and fell in love with it after my first outing at the gun range.

I am originally from New Mexico, moved out to the central valley (Modesto/Salida) and now currently reside in Berkeley (been here for 6 months, recently moved from San Jose).

I've purchased my first firearm just this past Saturday and am waiting for the "11" day wait period. Purchased a S&W M&P 15 Sport from The Modesto Pawn Shop when a friend recommended me Alquist arms in Turlock 2 hours later to save a few dollars more, but I'm sure I'll still be happy with my purchase. Now currently looking to purchase a mosin-nagant, probably from Big 5 and finally purchase either a heritage arms .22 revolver (love that western look and feel) or a ruger MK III .22 as my pistol.

I have a lot to learn but have some great friends around me that'll help and I'm sure this forum will be just as helpful and entertaining as my other groups.

Just to note* I've been through a hand gun safety course and have my HSC and have about 9-10 in range time down.
