    Newbie from FL

    Hi , everyone new to this forum. Have been looking through it for a few weeks and finally wanted to join in get some opinions and advice because I still have much to learn when it comes to guns. I am 19 years old and plan on applying for my CCW on my 21st. I plan on my first gun being a Taurus 24/7 G2 compact in 9mm. (thoughts/opinions please). Would already have it but I have no money because I am a college athlete and do not have time for a job. So hello to everyone glad to be part of the community.

    Welcome from Washington State! I've got a 24/7 G2 compact in .45 and love it. It is my EDC.

    Welcome from S. FL. Pick up a copy of Jon Gutmacher's Florida Firearms Law, Use & Ownership I believe the latest edition is seventh). It's worth every penny. As for the Taurus, you can do better for little more $$s. Each firearm is a personal selection. Also take some time and read through the FL statutes under FS 790 and 776.

    Enjoy the forum.
