I bought my first gun on my 21st birthday, a Smith & Wesson 4516. That was a horrible gun for a first time handgun owner, but, it's an otherwise rock solid pistol and I regret selling it back 2005. Years of casual shooting went on until a coworker introduced me to the PA Steel League. After I shot my first steel match, I was hooked. I went on a buying spree, buying nearly a ton of ammo, a bunch of new guns, and then I discovered reloading. Wanting something more than one steel match per month, I started shooting IDPA where I could shoot a match every weekend. Now, 6 years later and more than 100 matches shot, I've slowed down with shooting a match every weekend and have become a fair weather shooter. While I'm not shooting 13,000 rounds a year anymore, I still have what most recreational shooters would call a high annual round count.
I am a sworn LEO in PA and I shoot IDPA in my duty gear and complete in the LE category with my Smith & Wesson M&P9. At my peak of steel shooting, I was an A class shooter. Occasionally you'll find a post or two here related to shooting videos or photos, Johnny I Shoot Stuff doesn't just mean I shoot guns. There are many things that can be "shot" and you'll find those here too.
