Default New Shooter

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to shooting and guns and am just looking for a shooting buddy or someone who wants to hit the range with me and share some tips or just shoot together and have some fun. I've been lurking the forums for some time now though and the community here seems awesome! I just bought my first firearm a week ago (a glock 19).

I'm located in Northern San Diego area and my preferred range is at Discount Gun Mart since it's the closest one to me. I have a membership there so you can use the lane with me free if I bring you as a guest!

Welcome!

Any other info you can share? Age? Other interests?

I'm picking up a handgun from DGM next week

Thanks! I'm 21, male, and a student at UC San Diego. I'm pretty interested in the outdoors and outdoor activities. Actually planning on buying a long rifle and getting into hunting cause I think it'd be a nice skill to learn. Love cars too!

Haha, that is not northern SD. I live in Carlsbad/Vista and that is Northern SD. I would consider DGM in the middle of SD. Well I guess I am thinking county and you are thinking city...

I graduated from UCSD. Go Tritons!

Welcome to the forum!

Hit me up if you ever want to shoot some fun competition guns. I can bring you as a guest to Poway weapons and gear. I usually shoot weekends. If you ever get the itch to shoot a casual competition, I just started going to Escondido fish and game, very casual and newbie friendly. See the other thread.
