Don't know if I exactlly qualify as a "newbie" as I am 69 years old and have carried concealed for nearly fourty years now. Before I retired I was a college professor and dean and learned how to deal with the unrealistic, biased, ill conceived, anti gun bias that seems to perfade American college and university campuses these days. Now that I am retired from college/university work I have turned to farming Hearty Kiwi and own 50 acres here in western Oregon. Some of the acreage is for the kiwi but some of it is for my own, private gun range. :smitten: The older I get the more I have to learn and this looks like a great place to learn.
