    Newbie from Oregon.

    Hello all, I figured I would introduce myself. I've been lurking for a while, and reading, but it never hurts to say hi.

    I'm pretty new to handguns, I have a couple of rifles, and a shottie, but am getting ready to buy a handgun for concealed carry. My CCW is in process (I hope, after much confusion about what county I needed to apply with, I hope I got it right).

    Anyway, hello, I look forward to learning a lot, and likely asking for some advise on upcoming purchases.

    --John

    Yes, I have noticed there are quite a few Oregonians on here. Which is good, not being a range goer myself with my rifles, when I get my handgun, I will need to find a place in the Portland area. So any feedback on good ranges would great. I would like to find a place where I don't get guns pointed at me all the time, and people telling me it "its ok, its unloaded"..

    In Portland the place people talk about is The Place To Shoot. Nice people and real good ammo prices. I go there and like it. Never had a gun pointed at me yet.

    Good luck on the permit, and welcome to the forum!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
