    Hello.

    Just acquired A G17G4. I'm all over the paper with this thing. Practice I guess.

    Just wanted to say hi. Ryan, Colorado

    Welcome Ryan! [​IMG] The G17 is a great gun. No worries though, you'll get more proficient every trip. 3 things to remember:
    Take your time...quality over quantity.
    Breathe. Sometimes you get caught up in the rush of the shoot. Oxygen increases brain function and therefore muscle control.
    Learn to shoot with both eyes open. You're not going to take aim in a life or death situation. :)
    Welcome to the forum and looking forward to seeing you around.

    Welcome!

    You're on paper. That's the first step. Remember, Practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent.

    train, train, train. :D

    Welcome, FuzzyTofu. The only "fuzzy" tofu I know of is the really old "stinky tofu" in asia. Do you like Stinky Tofu? Or is your screen name another thing?

    You might as well start your own introduction thread. You might get lost in the shuffle on this one.

    Hello Fuzzytofu, and WELCOME to the Forum as well!

    Like DWC said, you may be better off starting a new Intro thread, so as not to get lost in this one.

    Again, WELCOME!
