New member and first post, but not totally new to firearms.
I am going to be getting my CCW here in the next couple months and was out gun shopping the last couple days. I was going to just get a High Point 9m because of price until i handeled it and found out how heavy it was. I went to a local shop and was looking at the selection and the saleman told me to look a the P22, I held it, it felt good but the fact that it is a .22 is a deal breaker. I do not want something heavy but I want something effective. My budget wont allow for me to get a Glock (I had one years ago, wish I never sold it) or any other high priced firearm, $350 is the most I will be able to spend and still have the extra money for the class and sheriffs fee. I have always been a semi auto man but the guy showed me some revolvers and that has opened my horizons, just not sure about 6 bullets to 10 + extra clip. I know I need something that will last for years to come, when I had my Glock, it babied it and kept it clean as can be. I also need something comfortable to carry since I made multiple trips a year out of state (from looking, the places I travel through up to my destination accepts Ohios permit) and want something that wont be a pain to wear on a long car trip.
Some insight from you all would be great. Thanks in advance for your time.
