Hello, from Wisconsin
This is a discussion on New to Guns within the New Members Introduce Yourself forums, part of the DefensiveCarry.com Forum Office category; Hello, from Wisconsin...
Find friends, have them take you out to shoot. Guns are loud and some kick, they are all a "Blast" to shoot. Have fun, be careful, and welcome to this mixed up United States.
Welcome to freedom and having rights, as someone commented, go to a range where you can rent and try different calibers and brands. Handguns have become very expensive, there are some that you can get for under $500, most of those are subcompact.
Congratulations on attaining your greencard, I hope you consider becoming a U.S. citizen once when the time comes.
