Default Hello from newbie in San Jose

Hi, everyone.

I just wanted to drop a quick "hello" to all the female members in this forum. I've been in the Bay Area most of life. Currently live in Gilroy and commute to work in San Jose. The threads have provided a wealth of information. As another new member had posted before me, this is a wonderful place to get another woman's perspective on the world of firearms. Very interested in some of the meet and greet (and possible bbqs) that hopefully take place each month around the county.

I'm super excited. I've always been a fan and admirer of firearms, I've had my HSC for more than a year now, and now I'm happy to say I purchased my first firearm yesterday! I know..I know...took a while..but hey, times are tough. So now I'm restlessly and impatiently waiting for the longest 10 days of my life to be over with so I can bring my new baby home I'm the type of person who gets hooked on things I love, for instance during the first year I started riding a motorcycle, I ended up with a closet full of various jackets, gloves, pants, backpacks, and helmets so I already know the same will happen with this new love. Forgive my rambling... so yeah, trying to contain my giddyness.

Thanks ladies!

Welcome, indeed.

In any case welcome to the Women's Forum. Lotsa good stuff here.

Welcome. Guns are like tattoos, once you start getting them... you always want more.

Sweet! Thanks for all the warm welcomes will definitely check out the Second Saturday outreach and Bonnie's suggestions after I get my handgun. Poms and Smoothies, would like to meet up at a range like Markley's or another during the summer or something.

Thanks for all the wonderful greetings!

Welcome! I've been a gun fanatic for about 1.5 years and barely started reading the women's forums. I, too, spend most of my days in Monterey County, Gilroy, and the South Bay. I, too, frequent Markley's, Targetmasters, and Laguna Seca...depending on what I'm shooting. PM and let's meet up sometime!

Why don't see if we can find a good day and time and get a group together to meet up at Markley's for a fun range day? Would week day or weekend work best?
