Hello from Spring, TX!

#1 Post by soydeedo » Sat Dec 28, 2019 3:15 am

Hi, all. I have a bit of shooting experience from when I was younger, but I'm looking to get back into it. I'd consider myself a novice and want to start with a fresh perspective as an adult, so I look forward to meeting people around the area that are responsible and friendly.

I'm near the intersection of Kuykendahl and Spring Cypress if anyone knows the area.

Thanks to climate change, it's been near 70 degrees here since winter started. It should be a whole lot colder.

Right now it's just my neighbor's Beretta 9mm and Sig .380. I don't recall the exact models, but I'm not ecstatic about either one. I'm planning to spend some time renting other pistols from a range near my house to find something that I want to own.

Some models I'm interested in trying out are the PX4 Storm, CZ 75, Glock 17/19, Taurus G2c, Sig Sauer P320, and some 9mm 1911 variants, but who knows what I'll end up with. =)

I activated a base membership around the time of my first post, but it doesn't look like it's carried over to the forums yet. I just applied for membership to the LGC-TX group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lgctx/

That's great to hear that there are members close by. Hopefully I will be able to make the next meetup!

That Taurus G3 also looks decent for a low price. It really depends on your preference. Check out a lot of the items in your list by holding them in your hands. Then rent, if you can. Get a sense of what you like and don't like before buying. Go slow.
