I'd also like to welcome you to ASC.
My one and only new blurb to add to what has already been said is that you should really try and get out to a local game. Even if you don't have the Guns, nor the gear to play, just being there and watching other people was great fun for myself when I did it. It helps get your foot into the door, more-so than it may have already been by just being a member of the forums here on ASC.
Good luck, and happy shooting.
