Just bought my first gun S&W 9mm Shield, if you donít count a Browning Buckmark 22 which was handed down to me from my Father 20 years ago. Traveling long distances from home to work each day and getting off of work at midnight I decided to purchase a firearm followed by getting a carry permit. Having researched for long time now which gun Iíd like to carry, I decided and bought an S&W Shield 9mm ($399) which Iíve been searching for three months throughout TN. Iím now actively searching for a quality conceal carry permit class in middle TN as my next step to being a responsible gun owner.
Through this forum I found some very helpful information and recommendations on what type of ammo to shoot at an in-door gun range (Winchester Whitebox) and a holster I believe will fit what Iím looking for like Ramora Series 6Art IWB.
Since Iím new to gun ownership and donít fully understand ballistics, stopping power, grain ammo yet, what would be good not too expensive ammo for self-defense?
Since I plan to practice with my gun quite often at the range, any suggestions on a range type bag where I can carry my two guns and ammo in?
Any other tips or suggestion would be appreciated.
