Hello!
#1
Hello there everyone. I just signed up and thought I'd introduce myself. The name's Mike, and I'm from Shillington, Berks County (just west of the wonderful city of Reading). I do not yet own a gun, but I just got my carry permit and am in the market for a good, affordable, and reliable carry gun.

A joined at the suggestion of a friend (acosenza2) who spoke very highly of this site and the forums. I'm really looking forward to doing a deep-dive into the information you have here!

I'll also welcome any thoughts you might have for a first-gun owner (e.g. how to shop, where to shop, what to shop for, etc.), as well as just conversing with like-minded patriots!

Take care,

Mike

welcome Don't try shopping on your own for a while. See if you can hook up with a couple of friends who have different firearms and will let you try them out. Barring that pay attention to the papers, sometimes Glock or one of the other manufacturers will have a "demo day" at one range or another where you can fire different models of that company's firearms. Good luck and feel free to ask questions, we were all newbies at one point or another.

Thanks a lot! I appreciate the advice. I'll probably ask around to the couple of folks I know who do have guns.

I can't believe I'll be 28 in April, with a father who was in the Army Reserves, and I've never shot a gun! Confused

My fiancee', however, has shot numerous guns. Must be why I asked her to marry me... Cool

Welcome!

When you are ready for more help and information, start a new thread for it. The title of this thread gives no indication of what you are looking for and will likely be passed over by many as 'just another introduction thread'.
