Hello all :) I'm a newbie from Richmond VA. Taking my concealed permit in a few weeks from Dominion shoot range and looking at getting my first handgun.

Although I haven't owned a gun before, I've grown up shooting 22's, shotguns, and a few handguns. I'm not a horrible shot with a pistol; my last time at the range didn't look too bad at all but I know I have a lot to learn and have a healthy respect for guns. Every time I look at my friends 40 (he carries it more often than not) he clears it and I still clear it myself.

2 of my friends purchased handguns (a glock 23 and a 27). The friend who bought the 23 hasn't really fired a handgun before and watching him at the range was a rather amusing experience. He's take his CC class at the same time I am, and my other friend already has his, so it should be a good experience.

While I was at the range I rented and absolutely fell in love with a PM9 with a crimson trace sight on it, so hopefully I will have one of those little buggers in a few weeks here. I was also looking at a Taurus Millenium pro, but after talking to the range owner as I have not shot one yet, he urged me to find a more reliable pistol for CC.

Wow, good reflexes!

Oh, on a side note, I have been in contact with my parents over the purchase of a pistol. My mom is somewhat familiar with it from a defensive standpoint as her dad gave her a derringer back in the 70's in case of a break in and my grandfather carried at some points. I told her I wanted to get a pistol for defensive carry and she offered her .38 derringer. I told her I would be more than happy to have the derringer but I still wanted a real pistol for concealed carry :p

Welcome aboard from a fellow Richmonder. While your looking at Dominion, try shooting the CZ P-01 they have there. Might be a little bigger than what your looking for but reliability and price are hard to beat.

Is that the green 9mm they have? I have fired that gun and from the google images search it looks to be the same gun.

If not, I'll have to give it a go next time I am here in a few weeks.

I have a pretty big frame so I think I could carry a bigger gun without printing but I loved shooting the PM9. I fired off a fast clip and was giggling like a school girl :embarassed:
