    Looking for some Gun Show reviews and info.
    I figured I would say hello here first.
    Welcome Hackerjoe. As you've noticed already there is some bantering between people who have gotten to know each other. There are many who have been here who "don't get along well with others", as some of us old farts remember from report cards in grade school. You'll find them everywhere but the moderators here seem to be pretty good at keeping them under control or getting rid of them.

    Like you, I found this site looking for gun show information about 10 years ago, I'm still here and liking the friendships I've made during that time. (Not just online friendships, I've met some really great people in person through communicating with them here). There is a lot of good information to be had here, but as with all internet activity, there is a certain amount of bullshit to be expected. It shouldn't take you very long to learn who is full of bullshit and who isn't.

    Enjoy your newfound friends, we're glad to have you.

    I don't have a short temper, I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

    Hi, just joined this forum from Philly. Moved here from MD about a year ago. I like to keep abreast of issues, as well as to have a place where I can ask questions and continue to learn. I just joined Holmesburg, which is quite unique as a resource in a major US city. I used to have to drive an hour outside of Baltimore to get to the Associated Gun Clubs of MD. Interested in pistols, trap, and bird hunts.

    Hi, my name is Joe. I found your forum via a link from King's Shooter Supply.
    I've been wanting a gun since I went shooting with co-workers, and found I am a good shot with a pistol. I researched pistols for a year and finally bought my first pistol yesterday. A Tanfoglio Witness P-S 9 mm.
    Now I'm looking for a solid safety training course and shooting instructions. (A little bass-akwards I know).
    I want to learn and be a responsible gun owner. Thanks for letting me in.

    Not backwards to 99% of gun owners. Most get safety from grandparents and parents if they grow up with guns. Formal training only follows after for most when the interest picks up for hunting. You are wise to seek the advice and instruction in a formal setting. Learn the 10 golden rules and if any instructors break them, leave and find another.

    I've been reading and rereading the 10 (or 12) rules. They are simple and straight forward. Also going over my manual, watching videos, etc. But nothing beats hands on training. Looking forward to it.
