    New CCW from New York State

    Hello to all. I am a new CCW permit holder from the Catskill mountain area in New York state. I am grateful for this site and all the information I have gotten from it in the last two days of reading and searching. Cudos to "Bumper" for a job well done.

    So where do I start? I have yet to purchase my first handgun. I am 40 yrs old and feel like a kid in a candy store. I hope to purchase one soon.

    I have been reading a lot of handgun stuff while I was waiting for my pemit. It took 10 months once all the paperwork and fingerprinting was done.

    I am really leaning towards a Glock 19 for my first purchase and concealed carry weapon. That price range for the Glock 19 would work for a different weapon but am not sure what.

    I wll post more questions in different threads and thanks to all and I look forward to new friends.

    Welcome to your 2nd Amendment right. Congrats on the "permit" to carry!

    I have yet to purchase my first handgun ... leaning towards a Glock 19 ... [price range] would work for a different weapon but am not sure what.
    If uncertain about which specific gun, I would recommend starting with a few questions. That should guide you to the "right" combo for you.

    1. How will you be carrying / how would you prefer to conceal? In the pocket, on the hip (IWB, OWB), small of the back, in a shirt holster?

    2. Will you be carrying daily (meaning, is light weight an extreme got-to-have, for you)?

    3. Will you be carrying a backup gun along with your primary?

    4. Do you have a specific preference on caliber, power, number of rounds? What are your preferences on characteristics such as weight, size, slimness, grip feel, etc.?

    With the above info, folks will have a lot to go on and will be able to recommend quite a lot of alternatives.
