Hello and thanks to all of you for allowing me to join your informative, interesting, and unfailingly entertaining forum. I have posted a few threads so far and I'm very impressed with the members' depth of knowledge, candor, and most of all their willingness to be helpful to others' needs. I am a firearms novice; I got interested in learning about them about 6 months ago and very recently took a firearms safety class at a local gun shop/firing range (NRA First Steps Pistol Orientation).
I am pondering my first firearms purchase and am planning to rent various handguns at the firing range to see what feels right for a CCW. Since I am so new to this - and I'm no kid; I'm 53 years old - I was thinking about some private instruction even though it is fairly expensive. I would like to follow and contribute to this forum and strive to be as helpful to others as I have found them to be to me.
I live in Marietta, GA.

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.
