Glad to finally come across a quality CCW forum. I am a 20 year old male in college studying software engineering. To be honest, I had never considered owning a gun until a couple years ago and never considered carrying a gun on me until recently. As I have gotten older and more independent I have also found myself feeling more aware and responsible for my safety as well as that of my family and those around me.
I am learning as much as possible about the pros/cons of various pistols, calibers, bullets, etc. and plan on taking a few firearm safety/skills classes in the near future. I'm also trying to decide what pistol would best fit my needs, here is the thread I started to further explain my situation/needs as well as ask for any and all suggestions from everyone here.
I didn't want to post my "what is best for me" type thread in the new member section, so head over to my other thread and give me your feedback and recommendations! Thanks, and I'm glad I joined the board and can begin learning from you all!
