My name is Mary. Nice to meet e1 here. I've been a gun owner for four years and I've yet to shoot my 22 Henry rifle. I purchased it for my deceased husband and he's only shot it twice (that I know of). I would like to know where would be the best place for me to have shooting practice and what do I need to do to get a license to carry? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

new to this
I made this poll because I'm trying new things as a resolution. I probably didn't do it right, but, I tried.

If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

Welcome from Southwestern Virginia. Check you local phone book. Look up and call a few of the Local Gun Stores and ask them if there is a public shooting range anywhere in the area (let them know what type of gun you will be shooting). Also ask them if they know of anyplace or anyone that teaches firearm safety/training classes. Someone at one of the local gun stores should be able to point you in the right direction.

Welcome from the AZ desert!
I think it's great that you have an interest in shooting! tkruf has the right idea... where better to find out about shooting opportunities than at your local gun store?
Perhaps there are some DC members local to you than can steer you, as well.

Mary, sorry to hear about the loss of your husband.
Glad to hear about your desire to start using a firearm. I'm sure that someone from LA will be responding on this site...52K members?...someone with some local knowledge will respond.
If you know any local cops, perhaps one who lives in your neighborhood would help with what to do.
The Henry rifle is a good one, I have the Henry .22mag...fine weapon.
If you are by yourself, you definitely need to get your concealed weapons license. This is also something that a local cop may help direct you to a place where the course is given. This course would be an excellent way to learn about the safety and legal issues involved with a firearm. When my wife took such a course here in FL, she really enjoyed it.
A firearm is a great equalizer for anyone especially females and older folks (not saying you're older...but I am). I would also plan on getting a pistol that you can keep around for quick access. A revolver would probably be a good firearm to start with. If you do go to a gun shop, don't go alone...gun shops sometimes push the guns that they need to sell...it happened to me many moons ago.
Here is a resource to look through...there are two state maps, just take your time and look through the LA parts...Concealed Carry Maps and Concealed Carry Permit Info.
Hope this helps.
