    A Quick Hello from Downriver, Michigan

    Hello all,

    Having recently joined the boards, I took a few days to read (and read and read) the posts here and have learned quite a bit. I am fairly new to guns and enjoy going with my significant (and much better armed!) other to our local gun range for an hour or so of shooting my rented plinker at some targets. I am currently gaining some range time in preparation for my CCW class coming up in early June. After that, I will be working towards purchasing a firearm for concealed carry. A slow process, but I am okay with that. I would rather have a gun I am comfortable carrying than one I am too scared to use.

    I am off to read more!

    Dawn

    Hi dawn and welcome

    For sure, make your choice of carry something you have tried and liked - and shoot well. Now you are here, and reading a lot, should be possible to help you along in your mission.

    srfl - There are some firearms that are pretty, and some that have a good solid reputation. I can think of a few things in life that are the same way. =] Right now, I am pretty wide open as to what I will end up carrying. I do not have nearly enough information, with the exception that I enjoy revolvers. So, the hunt continues (and that is one of the more fun parts, anyway!).

    Bud White - We shoot over at Top Gun in Taylor. I hear that there are a few more ranges nearby, and I would like to check them out as well. Being left-side dominant (and very ambidextrous besides) has made it interesting to shoot a rental .22 magnum revolver made for a right hand.
