    Welcome from a fellow buckeye.

    This is approximately what I did, or learned what I should have done:

    Your first decision will be caliber. Find a local range that has pistols to rent. They will usually have contacts for personal instruction. An hour or two with an instructor and different pistols will help answer the question of what feels best for you.

    Since you are interested in concealed carry, the size of weapon will be an issue. How are you going to carry. Outside the waistband, inside the waistband, deep carry, etc. You're body type, comfort level and arthritis will be important issues.

    Last, the choice of brand will come into play.

    As you gain experience, you will have more specific questions. This is a great resource, so continue to ask.

    Welcome to the party!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
