I just finished my 101 and 102 firearm classes at SIG SAUER Academy in NH!

My father was a doctor and was totally against any weapons - I mean I could not use a cap gun!

I wanted to take a gun class because I hate being afraid of anything and I was terrified of firearms. The discipline, routine and concentration that it took to fire a weapon really appeals to me.

I look forward to taking more classes at the Academy and eventually owning a firearm.

Ideally, I would love to learn how to skeet shot.

Welcome to the forum!

It is good that you are willing to appreciate and learn more along the way.

As for me, I can say that a P220 or P226 are very good. I even bought extras just to make sure. Big Grin



My other Sig is a Steyr...

Getting on my soap box for a moment...far too many new shooters "put the cart before the horse", they get far too wrapped up in the guns 'n' gear aspects of shooting (what mfr, what model, which holster etc..) and then go cheap by trying to figure out how to shoot whatever they just bought on their own. Often, it turns out that what felt good in their hands at the store didn't really work for them...and in the process of trying to teach themselves how to shoot, they ingrain bad techniques and bad habits, and then it takes even more money and time to have to unlearn them and then learn the correct techniques.

Shooting a gun, turning money into noise, is easy, and almost any fool can pull a trigger and make a bang while dirt goes flying... however, shooting a gun consistently safely and proficiently is not easy, so good on ya for taking the time to seek out not cheap instruction, but quality instruction.

Way to go on making a good decision...and welcome to the forum! Smile

Never been to Boston, and while I have no desire to live there, I sure would like to see that historic city someday.

Welcome from the NH Seacoast. Sure is nice having the Pro Shop and Academy just a short drive away. Have you looked at joining any of the local clubs?

There was no way I was going to handle a gun without proper lessons. Thanks for the welcome! I live just north of Boston. Had to look up "centennial state." I love Boulder and Vail, where I learned to ski.

Yes, being within an hour of Sig Academy is the best!

I am looking into a gun club because I want to shot consistently and get better. Suggestions?

Welcome. What's stopping you from owning a firearm now or in the near future?

Well, I see that you are from Texas. Here in Mass, we need a firearm license and that is taking about 3-4 months. I can't buy one with out that paper.

Once that process is completed, I hope to buy a Sig 320.
