    Thanks all for the great welcome.

    I'll take everyones advice and rent a few before buying..still leaning
    towards the 45 lol

    Little background info on me. My father is from the country of Norway, and I have been living there the past 15 years. Now at the age of 35 I moved to Texas. I'm a pipewelder so, Texas is good to me

    Norway, has a lot of red tape when it comes to firearms so thats why I sold my shotguns and 10-22 rifle when I left for this country long ago.

    Now that I'm in America I want to have a firearm. I used to be a good shot with my guns..never had a handgun. I think they sound like more fun to shot.

    How is the 45 in the recoil dept? I'm not a small man but, I was wondering if it kicked hard?

    Howdy from another Texan, you may want to also consider a Springfield XD maybe even a Glock. Welcome to the forum. If you are in the Dallas area let me know if you decide to CHL, maybe we can assist.

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Hey Stormbringer,

    I like your signature at the bottom. I lived in Norway, many years.
