Default New..want to learn more

So I am new to calguns and kinda guns in general. I've grown up shooting every once in a while with my dad. Since then he has passed and I inherited his guns. I got:

Winchester model 70 .270
Remington 12 g magnum
Ruger .357 model blackhawk
Glock 19 9mm
Marlin lever action 30-30

So those are my guns as of now. But my question is does anyone have any good resources to learn more about guns in general (magazines, websites, books, etc) or if you have any information yourself, that would be awesome too. Thanks!

Hello Clay and welcome to calguns. Sorry for your loss. You've inherited a pretty good selection of guns there. I'd check with the local shooting range and see if they are offering some of the NRA gun courses. Where are you located?

Here are some general rules that everyone should know:
# All guns are always loaded!
# Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy!
# Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target!
# Always be sure of your target!

The first thing I'd do if I were you is buy yourself a quality safe and bolt it into the floor so it cannot be moved. That way if you're broken into you wont lose all of your irreplaceable, inherited guns.
