Hello. I am from North Tonawanda, NY. I have just recently been granted a concealed carry pistol permit here in gun hating New York. My pistol is on order (a ruger LC9), and I have been in many different boards already trying to learn. No matter how much you read though, some things need to be demonstrated to learn. When It comes to guns, I prefer to learn the safe way rather than the hard way. NO ONE in my family or my wifes family has the capability to teach my anything about them, and the local stores only offer the pistol permit class required here in NY.
I am looking for a member who lives locally, who would be willing to meet with me at a range nearby so that I can learn a few things. I don't need a licensed instructor or anything (escpecially since im kinda broke), I just need someone who would be willing to maybe show me the ropes of proper handling, cleaning, ammunition, etc.
Anyone who would be interested please be forwarned, I DO NOT have any means to compensate you unfortunately. It would be more of like a friend helping out another friend sort of thing. Please let me know if anyone can help me out.
P.S. Love this forum already.....
