    Hello from Dixie

    Hi Everyone. I'm new to this forum and guns. Just completed my CWP class. Shot a pistol for the 1st time, ever, to complete my test. Beretta.22lr. It was a lot of fun despite being nervous! Managed to hit the bullseye several times & keep the rest of the shots close in the chest area. Ha. Going to get my fingerprints for SLED today and will be looking for a new gun with low recoil. My husband has 2 revolvers, and I like the simplicity of those guns but have not fired them. I have 3 kids, am very concerned about safety, and I need to practice, practice, practice. My oldest child, age 12, has a heck of a shot with a special edition NRA red rider bb gun, and I'm determined to encourage her love of shooting by becoming proficient in safety, defense, and accuracy myself. Guns, a bird crazy Vizsla, and God's country is a great way to spend time with my family, and I have been missing out due to fear. That is going to change along with my ability to protect if needed. A lot to learn. Thank you for having me on this forum.

    Welcome from Charleston, SC. Please let us know how long your permit takes. Mine was 89 days of the mandated 90 day maximum wait. Happy shooting.
