    Hello from Massachusetts

    Hello I'm Jay from Massachusetts.

    I am a newbie trying to learn everything I can about concealed carry. I'm currently awaiting the arrival of my license to carry. Of course I live in Massachusetts so I may be dead before that happens! I would appreciate some suggestions for a good starter handgun. I have shot gunsninnthe past just never owned one. Looking forward to some helpful tips!

    Greetings From Richmond/Rosenberg, TX
    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    I'm suffering here with you brother!
    This is a great forum and you'll learn a lot like I did.
    Good luck with your LTC!

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Welcome from West Virginia!

    Glock
    Smith and Wesson m&p series
    Springfield xd series
    These are a good place to start for semi autos. Try to get your hands on as many as possible and shoot them- if you can rent them at a range or if you have a friend that owns guns.
