my name is jason and i'm 22, i've grown up on long island and spent the last year in massachusetts working with farm animals but now i'm back

 

 

anyways i have only shot a firearm probably less than 20 times, a pistol once or twice, rifle, shotgun .. not too much experience

 

 

i'd really like to become familiar with firearms as i'd like to get into hunting one day and also for self defense 

 

 

if someone is willing to bring me along shooting with them i'd be very much obliged ! i am a clean cut and reliable sort of person and i take firearms seriously

 

 

of course i would pay for myself !

Welcome, maybe go look around and see what your interested in and maybe pick up something. You can go to Mitchell field and get a leisure pass and go to the range when your available and get into it.

While the pro-2A crowd is generally friendly and helpful, handing a loaded firearm to a stranger can be rather uncomfortable.

 

My advice is to visit your local gun shop and buy a Ruger 10/22 for around $300.00 (every gun owner has one or has had one) and take the NRA Basic Rifle course.

 

The course will give you basic instruction in safety and marksmanship. As for the 10/22... it will last you a lifetime...  When you tire of the basic 10/22 there are tons of modifications you can add for a little money or a lot of money.

 Yeah, he really "blasted" me. (never mind it was a reference to a well-known forum inside joke and he got all defensive about it)

 

Nice guy. Works with farm animals and takes pretty pictures.

If you wish to shoot pistols, go to Guns for Hire in NJ. You can rent pistols rifles and take courses too.

But get there EARLY! There was a three-hour wait when I went there a couple of months ago.

I'd be happy to teach you about shotguns, but you are probably better off taking a lesson at Suffolk County Clays in Yaphank where they rent shotguns.

In Wayne County Pennsylvania try 3 B's Indoor Shooting Range. They have Certified NRA Firearms Instructors and rent handguns and rifles.
I know that T&T allows it's customers a free night to shoot when they purchase a new firearm with an NRA Instructor.
