    Newbie: SW Virginia

    Hello everyone...

    My wife and I just completed our Hand-gun safety course and submitted our applications for our concealed carry permits. I have been searching the web for information and have found this forum to be very helpful.

    I currently have the Ruger LCP .380 for concealed carry (personal defense). However, I am looking to purchase something else that I can use for both personal defense and target shooting. I've had my eye on the CZ 75B, or CZ p01...We will see! I have a friend who is a diehard Glock guy, and another friend who just loves SpringField Armory. I'm not sure but I think all three of the above guns are good. Hopefully I can get the opportunity to shoot one of each, so that I can decide which is better for me.

    I look forward to getting to know everyone!

    take a look at SigSauer too. The others are good guns, just find out what fits and feels the best. Welcome to the forum from Utah

    Welcome to the forum from the Richmond area.
    As for CZ's, you'll have a hard time beating them for accuracy/reliability and ergonomics. I carry either a P-06 or P-01 and my wife has the 75 Compact. I also have the RAMI in both 9mm and .40 cal that occasionally get carried.

    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.

    Welcome from Montana.


    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.
