    HOW-dy

    Long time Rifle Shooter since I was 12, I'm 51 now and got my 1st handgun from my Daughter last Month. I never gave much thought about owning a Pistol, but I'm really enjoying the heck out of it!

    Where are you from NY? I used to live in the triple city area ( Binghamton/Johnsoncity/Endicott). I move to NC about 12 years ago.

    Thanks for the welcome all! Did read the rules, pretty much common sence and curtisy.

    I forgot to add is that the Handgun my Daughter gave me was a F.I.E. .22LR/Magnum Revolver. I only use the Magnum Cylinder.
    Next Month my Wife and I are going to apply for our CCW. It was her idea and I agreed with her 100%. It's good to have a wife that is into Motorcycles and Guns like I am!

    ??Never heard of them. A quick search turns up that FIE was an importer. Is there another makers name or markings on the gun? Photo?

    It says F.I.E. Texan Miami, FL on the Barrel, on the Butt it says Made in the USA & S/N on the frame and that's it.

    Boy don't see many FIE guns anymore. I have a 38 spl. Derringer made by them. I know FIE is supposed ot be an importer. But it's stamped FIE and come in an FIE box. Quack! it's a duck!..lol!!

    I bought it off an old lady that I was afraid she was going to use it and hurt herself. worst 50 bucks I ever spent It works and all. I just don't like those little things

    Welcome from Ky. by the way
