Thumbs up Hello, from Florida

Hi!

New member here from Florida. Fabian is my government name, but call me Uncle Elroy for forum purpose. ( "everybody loves Uncle Elroy" )

Just picked up my first M&P 9c two weeks ago from Guns and Range west palm beach ( great store, friendly and knowledgeable staff , please check them out )and i LOVE it. Its the first personal handgun i've owned, but not the first ive shot. ( mostly glocks ) From the first time i picked one up i knew, that i was going to own one. It just felt correct in my hand. from first grip to trigger pull.. it was instant love. plus the fact it built to shoot for lefties, well the deal was sealed.

I have a few other guns, mostly AR type rifles. Been shooting weekly for the past 6 months, but ever since Orlando i knew i needed to take better steps to not be a victim.

I been check this sight for about 2 months, and was happy with the crowed. so im happy to be a member!

Welcome from Wisconsin, Uncle Elroy!

I came over from the dark side myself about 4 years ago, Never regretted it. My Police Officer son now has my G21 & G23 as his off duty carry weapons. He carries a M&P40 on duty & advised me they were great handguns.
