A huge shout out to all of you who are just starting to learn about guns, gun safety and when you can use a gun in self-defense. The amount of information out there is daunting and can be really confusing!
One of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard (and given) to new shooters is if you’re looking for your first gun, see if you can try it before you buy.
That doesn’t mean you’re going to get to shoot the new gun before you buy it. Find a local range that has guns to rent and go shoot a bunch of them to see what you like. You wouldn’t buy a car for the first time without test driving that model – the same thing applies to firearms.
