Indianapolis, Centerville OH, Peoria AZ. This is where I want to be now that I am retired. I never considered buying a firearm until now, one year after moving to the Phoenix area. It is not because I feel any less safe. It just makes me feel more like an Arizonan and desert dweller. Also, I love understanding how electric and mechanical devices work, demonstrated by my GM muscle car and self-restored juke boxes. After spending many hours researching firearms, gun ownership, and the laws, I purchased a Springfield Armory 911 (380acp). After taking a gun safety course and firing at a range, I decided I like this. The plan now is for me and wife to obtain CCW permits even though it is not required here. My Kimber Micro 9 Stainless LG is on its way. I have to have a pistol that not only works well, but also looks good. Right after it arrives we will be heading to the impressive AZ Ben Avery shooting range. I am pleased to join you guys and ladies.
