New in Rockville

Hello everyone,
I have just joined, and I am a new shooter. I want to thank everyone for helping without knowing they did, as I used this forum for information and recommendations before my first post!
I am interested primarily in target shooting, and in beautiful guns as collectibles. I am not a hunter, although I have done that as a kid with my dad, but those days are behind me.
I have just ordered my first handgun after getting some information here and in other places: a Ruger New Model Single Six, the convertible 22LR/mag, the SS 5.5" model - really looking forward to its arrival and to playing with it!
If anyone has good recommendations for target shooting locations and instruction opportunities I would be grateful for your advice.

Welcome from Bethesda. I usually go to the NRA range in Virginia but Gilberts is in your neighborhood. There are a lot of threads about both on here, so search around. Good luck!

Thanks everyone, wow, I really feel welcome!
I was actually thinking of checking out the closest Izaak Walton chapter, it seems to be a great option for target practice. I will do so.
Looking forward to helpful exchanges and some fun.

Welcome from a noob in Rockville. Glad to have another aboard!

I go to the Gilbert Indoor Range in Rockville, just off Gude Drive.

But I'm also thinking of doing the Izak Walton thing too...

Welcome from Rockville. I usually goto Gilbert's at least once a week, if not every other week.
