Gun Training

Afternoon Ladies and Gents,

I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on a gun safety classes? I had a gun permit when I lived in Chicago, owned a handgun that my parents gave me and never once fired it. I don't feel confident in myself around guns and want to change that. Any suggestions on classes in the OC area?


As of now my plan of action is to read this book

CA Handgun Safety Boom by CA
http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/hscsg.pdf

Take the test at a dealer

Purchase a handgun

Then take a class

I'm up in the Burbank area but if you want to go to the range with me, shoot me a PM. I can show you basics and monitor you.

For real I didn't expect this type of response so quickly lol. I'm totally happy they chimed in. I asked my parents to take me last time I was in AZ as they have a couple of handguns and they told me they would have the neighbors take me... Which I just didn't feel comfortable enough going with them so I opted out lol.

So I went Saturday and took the firearm safety course and passed with 100% looked at a couple of guns. Fell in love with the Glock 19. Not to small, not to long can be concealed if needed. I noticed the price of used guns and older gens aren't much off from buying a new one. So I'm thinking I will pick up one next month.

Nice, man!
You're lucky that you don't live in LA. There's no chance of getting a concealed carry permit for me here at the moment. I miss living in the OC.
