Hey guys! Christopher from Royston, GA. I am engaged and we have a little boy born Feb. 19th 2010! I plan to become a member for GCO, just wanted get acquainted before making my first pistol (or firearm for that matter) purchase! My father was never much of a gun-wielding man, though we're Irish, we're lovers, not fighters lol. I've had an interest in firearms for as long as I can remember. I was passed down a .22 rifle from my grandmother that belonged to my grandfather. I never got to shoot it as it's stashed in my parents place. A few months ago I was given the opportunity to shoot my cousins AR-15 and Springfield XD40 - boy was it fun! Well, I guess that's the conclusion. Any help is appreciated!
