Hello. I am one of those new gun owners and I must admit that the initial reason for my decision to get my concealed carry permit and purchase a gun was the fear of not just the COVID 19 pandemic, but also what comes afterward an now in the wake of current protests (some of which got out of hand) My wife and I are in our mid fifties and much to my shame I haven’t taken as good Care of myself or stayed as fit as I should have and I’m not afraid to admit that we’re a bit scared and intimidated all of this. That being said, I’ve opted to buy a gun for each of us. I go to the range as often as I can afford to so that I become a more accurate shot. I also try to practice drawing my firearm, acquiring the target and hitting said target. I wish I could acquire a more formal training, but unfortunately at the moment, finances are a bit tight given the current situation of the economy. I have however found two ranges close to me where the owners, staff and patrons are fantastic wonderful people who are willing and ready to share their knowledge and in some cases expertise. I don’t know if it’s permissible but I’d like to give a big shout out to Spray and Pray in Sebring FL. As well as Big Bang Ranch in Avon Park FL. They have been instrumental in my confidence and ability. I personally welcome any and all information, tips or ideas to help us in the betterment of ourselves. Thank you.
