    Hello from Nassau County, NY

    Always wanted to target shoot but never got around to it.
    I'm in the middle stages of the permit process.
    In my neck of the woods that means if I'm fortunate I'll have my permit around Halloween. I'm in no rush though.

    I'm educating my self on 1911's and I am presently favoring a COLT.

    I will not carry. This would be strictly a range gun.

    I will take the NRA pistol safety course and hope to handle several pistols before even entertaining a purchase.

    I am open to any and all recommendations.

    Oh yeah...Glad to be a member!

    welcome from Michigan.. Try to locate close by ranges near your area where they rent handguns..Best way to know more about a gun and how it feels is to shoot it if you can..Usually gun rentals run around $8 to $12 per hour depending on where you are..Try this option out first.

    Welcome buddy, where on Long Island? I used to go out to Woodmere often to visit family when I lived in the city.

    Good luck on the permit process, I've heard NY is a b*tch.
