Went absolutely great...I am hooked. Put 150 rounds thru my new .45 and my shooting partner said I did really well. He kept asking me if I was sure I had never shot before. When we stopped to get more ammo on the way home, I went ahead and signed up for the CCW class right away. Looking forward to going back to the range next weekend. T

I think you have contracted the addiction we all suffer from here. And there is no known cure. Congratulations on the great day at the range, and on being able to purchase more ammo on the way home! :thumb:

Welcome into the fold. You are now ruined for life and all those who care about you will now wonder if they will ever see the person they once knew so well, again! Just kidding, I'm glad you had a positive, fulfilling experience. I've been shooting since I was 5 and its always been a rewarding hobby full of awesome people to share it with.

After retiring from about 40 years of Motorcycle racing of some sort or another, I decided I wanted to try something else for myself. I think I have found it. The local gun shop has .45acp for $25 for 50 rounds with a 10 box limit. No problems here.

Welcome to the club! :wave:
But don't listen to Smoke. He's just wrong. Shooting is not an addiction. I can quit anytime I want.
I could have quit anytime in the last half century if I had wanted to.
Really.

O'h No, you have contracted the disease of gun ownership and shooting. There is no known cure for it, but regular visits to the range and gun shops will cause it to be tolerable and the most pain is felt in the wallet. :)

Just go ahead and enjoy it.

Oh, man you've gone and done it now, and with a 1911? There is absolutely no cure...

Double that addiction! Just shooting in itsself is fun enough but shooting .45ACP which is my favorite
handgun caliber makes things ever better! Congratualtions and let us know how your CCW classes go.

Tried a few other guns why we were at the range...a possible problem I might have is my hands are really large. I don't know if it will limit my selection in what I am comfortable shooting.

Yeah.. another addict! :D :D

This can be a very expensive hobby. You might even end up buying a new firearm when all you were looking for was more ammo... :D

I'm glad you had fun! Welcome to the sport!
