newbie from Tennessee
Hi guys and gals of Firing Line Community. I'm newbie to this wonderful site. I'm also a newbie to the wonderful world of guns. After helping take care of my ailing mother who recently passed away from Brain & lung cancer I was looking for something to help take my mind off of how much I missed her because my father & me were helping her with anything & everything she needed for almost 5 years. So 1 day my father was fixing to sell a commercial property he had & took a old stuffed animal & pulled out a little 25 & told me to shoot. he actually had missed it his his 1st couple of shots. he said don't be discouraged if you miss because you probably will because you have never shot a gun. so I took it and slowly fired 4 rounds. Then we went to see how I did and he said wow your a natural. I've been hooked ever since. Shortly after we went and took the gun class & filled out for our carry permits & I actually just got it yesterday. I also purchased my 1st gun yesterday to. My 1st purchase is a Ruger GP100 357 Magnum. I went with this because after my 1st shooting experience my dad gave me a family heirloom he had got from his father. It was a1976 Colt Trooper MKIII 357 MAGNUM. Its my favorite gun I own. But with it originally being my grandfathers gun & then my dads & finally mine. I've decided to keep it locked up tight in my safe. I was an only child & since I have only 1 child even though its a daughter I'm going to give it to her one day. Sorry for the long rant. I just wanted to introduce myself & give a little info about me & to say thanks for letting me become a member to this cool sight. I'm not the most computer literate but I'm going to try & post pictures of both my guns if I can figure it out.
Also if anyone could send me a private message telling me how to post pictures it would be appreciated also Im on Smart Phone this pretty much only internet access I have is through my phone. Sorry for silly question computer technology to me is like Kryptonite to Superman
