    Finally purchased my first gun!!

    Well, after much deliberation I have purchased my first handgun, a Smith and Wesson M&P 9C. Tomorrow it's off to the sheriff's office to get my carry permit. Thanks to everyone here for the help, and I'm glad to be a legitimate member of this forum now, lol.

    That's great, Steve. Since AL doesn't have a training requirement for CWP, I strongly suggest you seek some to build your skills and enhance safety. Typically, local gun shops can get you steered in the right direction. Have a bunch of fun with the new toy.

    Congratulations!! Hope you never get in a situation where you have to actually use it for personal defense. Enjoy it, practice and stay safe.

    Congrats on a fine purchase! I own a M&P 9c as well and love the gun. As stated before...train and practice...a tool is worthless unless in the hands of it's master. Be a master!

    Nice!! I've heard good things about the compact m&p's. I have a fullsize but, I think I'd like a compact too.

    Congratulations on your purchase. From what I read, a very good choice.
