Good advice by all. Just go and see if you can find a couple guys to shoot along with. You might find a couple to travel and shoiot with on a regular basis. Then you won't have to go solo so often. You have to get your feet wet sometime and there's no time like the present. The more you get around this the better you'll get and find that most will welcome a new shooter. Who knows? Maybe you'll meet a guy or two that;s in the same shoes you're in.
