Thumbs up Hello CalGuns!

I've been reading on this forum for a couple of weeks and have found it to be very helpful, lots of good info. I finally made an account, so I thought I'd say hello.

I've shot a handful of guns in my life, but I just purchased my first handgun (Springfield XD) and take delivery on Tuesday. Probably going to get a shotgun and rifle in the next year, but I'll need some range time before I make a decision.

Anyway, thanks for all the good info on this forum. I got a great deal on my handgun and a safe, courtesy of the posts I found here.
