Hello everyone! Other than shooting BB guns and dart guns, I'm fairly new to shooting but I've always been interested in target shooting, weather it be by gun, bow and arrow, spear, what have you. I currenty have an old Winchester .22 rifle and a Rossi .38 special that was handed down to me by my father. And I currently have a Mossberg 500 combo on a 10 day wait. I'm probably going to sell the Rossi but keep the Winchester for some fun target practice. The Mossberg will be for home defense. I look forward to soaking up all the info you guys have to offer!

Jon

Welcome. Shooting skills are transferrable.





























































































































If you are a good shooter, doesn't matter whether a BB gun or arrow.

Hi Jon, welcome to Calguns. Don't be in a hurry to sell the Rossi, it was from your dad and everyone should have at least one .38 revolver around.

Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome and already some useful info!

Hi Jon, welcome to Calguns. Don't be in a hurry to sell the Rossi, it was from your dad and everyone should have at least one .38 revolver around.

I've debated having a handgun in the house and I'm still not sure I want one. I have a 3 year old and even tho I'd keep it nice and secure, I just feel that a handgun is too easily accessible. Not saying that that's how I feel for everyone, but it's just not for me. Strangley enough, I'd rather have a house full of rifles and shotguns than a handgun. But I may at some point get one, just not now. And the .38 Rossi feels really small in my hands. My father got it for my mother when her store got robbed at knife point, and it's perfect for her. But it just feels too small. If I do get one, it'll probably be a semi-auto, something beefier.
