As many members on this Forum have recommended, I did go to an indoor gun range and I rented different calibers to see which one was best for me for my first pistol. Wanting a 9mm I read tons of reviews as well as a gun that was easy to conceal. Having searched for a few months I finally was able to purchase an S&W Shield 9mm so my next step was to take a TN Carry permit Class. Having only fired a Browning Buck Mark 22 pistol, I felt a little nervous about how I'd do in this Concealed Carry Class. Once I bought this gun, I went to the indoor shooting range a couple times to get familiar with my new gun. As long as I pull the trigger slowly, the gun is very accurate especially given that it's a compact. I gotta tell you how much of a fan I am of S&W 9mm Shield. Now that I have a S&W Shield, I now see why they are so popular and why S&W is having such a hard time keeping up with demand. They scored a home run as far as I'm concerned.
Here's the silhouette I qualified with at my TN Carry Permit class.

Good shooting & congratulations on passing your CCW class! Everything that I've heard about the Shield has been positive. At this time I'm negotiating for a Glock 23, a gun I'm familiar with as I qualified for my Armed Security license with it some years ago. I gave my duty G23 to my son before WI had a concealed carry law. Now I regret that. If that deal falls through I'm sincerely thinking of getting a Shield in .40 cal.

Don't bring a knife to a gun fight...unless it's strapped to a gun.
Thumbs up on the shooting and passing!!!
Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
Not bad at all... keep it up at the range...
