Ruger_Newbie Posted February 27, 2008 Share Posted February 27, 2008 Hi all, I am 25 years old and have been shooting since I was 11 years old and just a few months ago I got the chance to shoot my brother's Walther P22 and got hooked into the crazy and chaotic world we know of pistols. I have watched the various competitions on tv over the years and decided to give action shooting a chance. I went to my local range and started talking with the owner and a few of the people there and they helped me out a lot, they seemed very knowledgable, and very trustworthy and down to earth people. I ended up purchasing a Ruger P95DC 9mm pistol that was used. I got a great deal on it. It came with a Blackhawk duty belt, double mag pouch, holster, and the 2 10 round mags that came with the gun and 2 15 round mags all for $300 plus tax and fees, u know got to pay Uncle Sam and the evil Ed Rendell his portion lol. Well the gun is great I love it. I have put over 300 rounds through it in a weeks time. The range offers classes for beginners and also private instruction. I decided that with my busy work schedule the private instruction was the way for me to go and I am going for my first session tomorrow. The range has their own action shoots the 1st and 3rd Monday night of every month and I get to shoot that for the first time on March 3rd. Also one of the neat things is that the Sportsmans Club I belong to the person who runs the USPSA portion is also one of the employees at the pistol range helping the owner out part time. The club is having a new shooters orientation on the 29th of march and i get to shoot my first match on the next day. I can't wait I plan on using my Ruger to shoot in the production division. My question is this: Is there any advice u could give a new shooter on shooting the action matches and any modifications that i could do to my Ruger to make it a little more competitive, within the legal boundaries of the rules of course. Any help would be appreciated and I would like to thank you all for the help in advance. I have learned so much just by surfing through the forum here.
