Welcome aboard! You'll enjoy the sport.
You living anyplace near Houma? Lived there myself back in the 80's when I worked offshore. Fond memories of heading to the bar on a saturday AM, grabbing two trash-bags of aluminum beer cans from the garbage, and then going plinking "any old place". Cops would come by and join in the fun now and then. Pick 'em all back up and haul 'em full of holes to the bar garbage in the afternoon and go home. 1000 rounds of .22 was about the norm for a Saturday.
