I took my first gun safety course today, shooting a rented Ruger SR9, never ever having fired a gun in my life at 65 years of age. I was very nervous, sweating, hands shaking, anxious times 10. Whew, but I made it through and somehow was fun through all my preconceived anti gun safety fears. So now it's onward and upward with renting other guns at the range to decide what I want to buy for a first gun. So here are my first target results at a whopping 15 feet, guaranteed distance for success.
