    Welcome from Las Vegas, Nevada!

    One thing might want to do is take a trip to a local gun store. Try holding the various size guns. Check to see how the various guns feel as you hold them. Once you decide on the type grip the next question is the caliber of the gun.

    Try and find what caliber is the best for you. You want a caliber that you feel comfortable shooting. You don't want the smallest caliber but not a gun that is too much for you. If you can rent the gun, rent it and see how you handle the recoil. Too small of a caliber is less effective. Too much of a caliber handgun is hard to shoot with regards to recoil. Experiment with the right size & caliber. You will find the right gun through trial & error.

    Suggestions

    Tishia,

    Some training centers have 'Ladies Only' classes with female instructors. In Memphis, TN Rangemasters offer such classes. I do not know if they have any in somewhere like Fayetteville, Ar.

    The minimum carry caliber I suggest is .380.

    For best concealment a sub-compact semi auto would fit the bill. Revolvers are good for a first pistol as they are simpler to use but are more bulky.

    The Arkansas CCP is quite easy to obtain. It now costs $60 for the application and $60 for the range qualification instructor fee.

    The holster you select will depend upon the weapon you choose and what works best for you carrying the holster/weapon concealed.

    Always wear hearing and eye protection while shooting.

    Good luck.

    Bill

    QUOTE=Naturallia;1077645]Hello all.

    My name is Tishia and I have recently decided I will no longer be a victim. I am doing research about the steps I need to take to carry concealed. I have never shot a gun before and I am overwhelmed by all the possibilities out there for firearms and add into that all the possible holsters and different locations on my body to carry. I'm hoping that with the help of my husband and with all of your feedback, I will figure out what may work for me.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Sincerely,

    Tishia (A.K.A. Naturallia)[/QUOTE]

    I'm in Missouri :)

    Thank you all for the kind welcoming.

    I'm peeking around, asking a few questions here and there and everybody has been so helpful.
