    New to forum & carrying

    Just got a CCW in NC a couple of months ago and picked up an M&P 9 Shield at the local gun show yesterday. Went to a range for the first time (ever), first time shooting a 9mm, and obviously the Shield. Lots of new stuff for me! I've been doing a lot of reading about CCW, the various common carry guns, and a lot about the Shield. Hope to learn more (this forum has been great so far).

    My wife was bit by the bug yesterday too and decided she wanted a Sig P238 (w/ night sights and laser). Great little gun, got to fire it today also. These are our first two pistol purchases and will be our carry guns.

    See ya around.

    I loved the P238, everything was perfect but the price tag for my sorry married-to-a-med-student wallet Welcome! You'll get a lot here - I've only been a lurker for about a year and a member less than that, it's definitely worth the membership fee

    Thanks all.

    @lyzgrace: Yeah the price was definitely up there! Adding the laser & night sights didn't help. But for her it was the easiest to handle when it came to the safety, slide drop, etc. Sig make such good quality guns! For being a small gun it felt very solid compared to some of the other 380's out there.
