    Red face hello everyone!

    hey guys! i'm what you'd call beyond new to this. i live in Tanzania, East Africa, where the use of handguns is allowed but very restricted. and when i mean restricted i really mean it. (you need written permission from the police to purchase bullets, usually limited to 25 rounds/year. and they're FMJ)
    anyhow, i have recently purchased a RAMI P in 9mm and begun the very long process to obtain a license for it. (which takes between 6-24 months). wish me luck.
    i have done extensive reading on handguns/ammunition but absolutely zero experience with them. i hope to learn a lot here.
    cheers!

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    Good luck on what looks to be a very long journey to legal carry.

    Welcome from South Carolina, USA...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
