    Well not sure how often I'll get over here but I've already been lurkin a plenty so guess I best intro myself! I'm Lav. Have a here n there hx w/firearms. I was in Army ROTC for over a year and have done lots of the usual backyard plinking. Have a S & W .357 mag (2" and 4" barrel) and a Colt .45 70 series. I figured it is time for some formal training so next weekend I will be going through an all day course (w/ some unarmed self defense thrown in) taught by my friend, a Navy and POST certified firearms instructor. I am soooo excited and ultimately my goal is to acquire a Glock 22 or 23 but it sure would also be nice to get a Sig P229 as well!!! Then I hope to attend a USPSA camp this Sept or next year.

    I live near Athens and am a Georgia native. Although I work inside for a living (dental hygienist), I adore being outdoors and being in touch with my tomboy self!!!! LOL

    :welcome: Listen ~Lav~ pay no attention to USMC-R. He has no class! I have a Glock 23 and you will love it. I will tell you a secret, but promise me you will not tell anyone okay? USMC-R is a little slow if you know what I mean. :lol: More later.

    Hmmmm...Glockalaid??? Sounds good !! Maybe better than the beer I'm drinking right now and yes...I thoroughly enjoy getting intouch with my tomboy self although if you met me you would never guess it!!! LOL

    Since my friend is a veteran cop and major Glock fan it is what I really have my lil firearm craving for. Yeah I have read many great posts by GlockGirl and hope to have a chat or 2 w/her!!

    GeorgiaGlocker~shhhh..don't worry...your secret is safe w/meeeeee!!! lol

    Getting advice on firearms from a Gym Teacher (not naming any names here) is like getting advice on cars from Lance Armstrong.... :lol:
