    Hi There From Wichita, Kansas...

    Hi there...

    Just thought I'd drop by and introduce myself. I'm Kathryn (aka PrairiePixie) and I'm from Wichita, Kansas. I'm a single mom to four teenagers and five cats... all of which keep me very busy! I just sent in my application for my CCW permit, so hopefully I'll have it before too long. I'm a registered nurse for a cardiac hospital and the school district. Right now, I'm having a difficult time figuring out how I'm going to conceal carry because I'm small (5'1" and 95lbs), and so far everything I've tried either digs into my ribs, hips, or sticks out like a sore thumb if it's comfortable. I'm here to make new friends and learn as much as I can from everyone who posts here. I'm still pretty new with dealing with handguns, but I'm getting better with them. I'll be carrying a Taurus 85 Ultralight 38 Special revolver once I get my CCW. Unfortunately, I've developed some bad habits like flinching, anticipating the shot, and closing my eyes because the Taurus has a little bit more of a bite than I had anticipated, and it tends to cause sores on my hand where I hold it.

    Anyway... best wishes to all for a wonderful day, and smile often...

    Kathryn (aka PrairiePixie)

    Welcome to the forum Kathryn!

    Do you have access to local training/trainers that can do one-on-one instruction to help you with your flinch problem? Further, can you get access to either a bigger revolver (like a six-shot .357 Mag) and load it with light .38 loads or maybe even a .22LR handgun to acclimate yourself to firing a handgun without the heavier recoil of a small-framed .38 SPL like your Taurus?
