Welcome. Smart to get advice, too many don't.
First tip: Beware of what you hear at gun stores.

great to know we have another member. buying a first gun is the slipperiest of slopes. you start with 1,then you find another. a couple of months go by and you find a cool gun (so you buy it obviously). it's a slippery slope I tell you....


long story short, be responsible, be safe. welcome to calguns

Welcome ekkthree! Burbank Firing Line indoor range is excellent. I'm a member there.

Oaktree is also a great outdoor range.
