Hello from Ruston, LA! My name is Zac and I'm originally from Tampa, FL. While growing up in Florida I was around fishing more than shooting. No one in my family owns a gun (unless you include airsoft guns haha). Once I moved to Louisiana with my new bride we quickly realized that everyone loves to shoot and hunt. So I'm currently looking for my first pistol and I really like the Springfield XD Mod2 9MM Service Model! It seems like a good all around gun for a first timer like me. I look forward to learning a lot from this forum and, I must say, I really like the way this forum is run with integrity. I'm thankful to be a part of it!
