Hello. Let me start by saying that I am a complete newbie to everything. Since a kid I have always been fascinated by guns. My mother was very anti-gun. No bb guns, no airsoft, no paintball. Well I applied for a pistol permit here in gun-hating new York, and was approved for a full carry. I purchased a Ruger lc9 since it seems to be highly rated and reccomended. I do not know anyone with any kind of firearm, including hunting. So I have to depend on forums and you tube to learn cleaning, field stripping, etc.
That being said, I pick up my lc9 from the ffl on Tuesday. I would like to take it down to a range after I clean it. I went to my local Walmart, and they have 4 different brands of 9mm ammo. For reference they are:
TULAMMO, FEDERAL, WINCHESTER, & REMMINGTON, all are 115 gr. FMJ.
My question is this. For simple range shooting, is FMJ good to use? And what are the primary types of ammo that are used, I know of 3(FMJ, hollow point, self defense), but what are the others, and what's the difference between them.
I realize this is a newb question, but I don't have anyone to ask.
