I'm almost 52 and I have never fired a handgun. That's about to change. I'm signed up for a beginner handgun safety and proficiency class in a few weeks and I can hardly wait. In the meantime I've been learning as much as I can from your many great forums. One thing I've noticed: there often doesn't seem to be a "correct" answer. i.e., 9 mm vs .40 S&W vs .45 ACP, lighter faster bullets vs heavier slower, etc. Looks like one simply has to figure out what's best for themselves. I'm looking forward to interacting with you fine folks.

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.
Welcome Kansas from Kansas. You'lll enjoy these forums...very informative and always good folks alway willing to pass on their thoughts and experiences. IMHO you're right about the issues mentioned. What works for you is where you will end up. I went thru several different guns before I locked in on Glocks -27 for EDC, a 19 and a 22 for competition which I want to try. Also have a Kahr PM9 which is super concealable when my G27 just won't work. You will also find yourself trying out many different holdsters to find the most comfortable and concealable for you clothing style and body type. I'm a business casual/jeans guy who tucks shirts. My best carry position isright side appendix. I have used a Smartcarry as I prefer the weight of the gun to be on me and not on my pants. Just be patient and know you will have to experiment. Above all have fun and practice!!
