One of My Favorite Things

I love target shooting. It is one of m favorite things. I usually get up to my range about once every two months or so. I'd love to go more often, but it's pretty far from my house. I started target shooting when I was 19, stopping at a shooting range on impulse while on vacation, and realized that not only was it very enjoyable, but I was also pretty good at it.
I like shooting with both rifles and handguns, but prefer handguns, usually 9mm, .40 or .45 caliber. Glocks are easy to shoot, but I think my favorites are the Smith&Wesson Tactical or the Springfield SD40. I like the way they feel in my hand, and the weight of the metal reduces the recoil.

I think its funny that so many people are opposed to target shooting on principle, and believe that people who do shoot are just waiting to go around on a killing spree. Its nearly impossible to get a handgun permit where I live, but that doesn't seem to have any effect on the criminals that enjoy shooting up the neighborhood.
When you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have them, in my opinion.

I've always had an interest in target shooting. I have not had the chance to try it out yet but hope i will sometime. Is there any "skills" or things i should know about target shooting before i try it out?
