Foray What does it mean?

Foray?   The word foray came up in a discussion the other day.  I think many people aer using it incorrectly.   

Foray definition: a sudden attack, to maraud, pillage or raid. It also used to mean to ravage in search of spoils.

Sometimes, I hear it used to try something like foray into a new area of business.  Only one online dictionary referenced this use of foray.  It said it could mean to explore something unfamiliar or try something new like an occupation or activity.

How do you use the word?
