Welcome from SE Texas.
I've been here a few days and read a lot and decided to say hello.
Thanks to all the posts...been very helpful narrowing down our choices for our first handgun. A visit to the Saxet gun show today in Pharr, TX (while visiting my in-laws) helped also narrow down the candidates to 5 and I am sure any of them will do.
Thanks, I actually lived here (Edinburg) for a year but had to move to Austin due to job availability.
Welcome to the forum and have fun researching all of the options available to you. In my opinion, the research is half the fun when buying a new pistol!
