Hi All. New to CC and site. Actually waiting to take my classes with my fiance. Picked us each new LCRs last week. Grew up around guns and hunting all my life. I know I have a ton to learn about CCW and what goes with it. Looks like a ton of good information and people here. I look forward to learning a lot here. Thanks in advance for any help with my stupid questions.

I have a hobby. I have the world’s largest collection of sea shells.
I keep it scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you’ve seen some of it.

Hello, Fredg, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum. Good people and info here!
Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, I recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, 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. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free.
Here is a very good technical review of self defense ammo, when you want to consider this:

This is an informative review by a doctor of different gunshot wounds effects; we all need to be aware of this real-life information:
