    New Lady to Guns!

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I have only dry fired the gun so I am hoping the recoil won't be an issue. Also, I should have said experienced rather than "professional" gun owners in my opening post. We are from South Florida and enjoying some good weather here. Hope to try out the gun tomorrow.

    Welcome from South Carolina...

    You might enjoy reviewing this site: Cornered Cat | If you have to fight, fight like a cornered cat. ... I think you will find some excellent information there to go along with what you discover on Defensive Carry...
    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 JudyGun, from the great state of Texas. Quite a few new lady members here of late. Glad to have you all. You'll find lots of good info and plenty of nice people here. Let us know how your new gun works for you.

    Welcome and congrats, if you find yourself back out at the range with this in mind, try your husbands pistol (if it is a semi auto that is) try this it worked for the ladies in my family. before trying to pull the slide back pull the trigger back first, then try the slide, this way you are only pulling on the slide not the hammer and the slide. I would never tell you to do this with you CCW weapon just so you can enjoy all weapons at the range.

    ^^^^^

    A lot of new shooters also dont think to push forward with the strong hand while pulling back on the slide.

    Anyway, welcome to the site
