    Re: Just bought my first handgun for multiple purposes.

    Welcome and enjoy your new G22! It is a great gun! Sounds like you have a lot to learn, but it also sounds like you are willing to learn. You can learn a lot of valuable information from this forum.

    One thing I'll add. You mentioned the possibility of getting a 9mm conversion barrel to use at the range. While there is nothing wrong with that, just make sure you get enough practice shooting .40 ammo first. God forbid you have to use the gun to protect yourself, but you won't want any surprises when you pull the trigger. 9mm and .40 are much different when shooting.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.

    Hello, AR, and welcome from Missouri to this great forum. Good people and LOTS of info here!

    Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good instructional classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up.
