    Hi! I am a 31 year old female, I'm an ER nurse. I grew up around hunting rifles, but hand guns are a new interest to me. I've done loads of research, and shot lots of guns, and I'm still in the process of deciding on a gun to purchase. I'm hoping hanging out on here will help me with some decisions.

    WOW...
    Well Welcome from WA state. It warms the cockles of my heart to see a Nurse, and an ER Nurse to boot grace these pages. To quote a medical term there's a stool sample's worth of more qualified individuals here to take you down the path of finding the pistol or wheelgun of your choice for a first handgun purchase.

    Been quite awhile since I used any medical terminology.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
