February 25, 2012
Because of recent assaults and burglaries in the area, I feel it's time to get a gun, learn how to use it, and learn other methods for personal protection. I think it would also be a great way to meet new friends. UPDATE: I took the Basic Pistol Course on May 25, 2012, and had no idea shooting could be so much fun. I look forward to learning more and purchasing my first firearm.
I'm interested in a multitude of things, but primary interests are reading (some fiction, but mostly history), genealogy, travel, science, and involvement in volunteer activities (primarily the DAR and military/veterans organizations).
Only the basic course, and no self defense, though I'm interested.
I'm a middle-aged (yikes!) woman, living alone with my beloved 14-year-old female Sheltie. I spend most of my time at home, as I'm self-employed (IT consultant) and work from home.
