New Guy From VA

This is such a subjective thing and so many opinions that will cover a wide range, read and find a range that rents some and try and find what suits you best. Any quality firearm from a reputable manufacturer that you are willing to train on and become proficient with......GO HOKIES !!!!!!......JJ
Welcome from Iowa! Where in VA are you?
Howdy from the Lone Star State.
Welcome, fellow Virginian.
Best advice is to go to a range that rents and try some guns out to find out what fits you best.
If you are in NoVa, try Sharpshooters in Lorton, VA.They have best selection of rentals and they have a lot of guns for sale including used guns.
Or, try Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly, VA if that is closer. Good selection. Not as good selection for sale.
Down in Stafford, VA there is The Range which has a small selection.
In Richmond, go to Dominion Range on Terminal Road. Excellent selection of rental guns.
In Hampton Roads area, go to Lynnhaven Shooting Range in Va Beach. Good selection although strange range rules: Can't fire faster than 4 seconds per round...wierd.
I don't know of one in Roanoke, although I have heard there is one down there.
Lots of good training instructors work out of the NRA range in Fairfax, VA.
I recommend IDPA matches to practice your skills.
For a start on the guns, look at the S&W M&P, the Kahr PM40, the Cz 2075 RAMI, the Sig 2022 or P250, SPringfield XD,
Walther PPQ and of course the Glock. Have fun trying them out....its worth the money. If they don't have a .40 in everything, try the 9mm...they will be essentially the same gun.
Welcome, and good luck.
PM me if you need more info.
Welcome from Wisconsin..........I shoot .40, and love it, but I carry S&W Bodyguard/w/ Rem UHD 102 gr. bjhp........

Welcome to the forum! As others have said, try out as many as you can before you buy. It's a personal thing, you will find some you like and some you dislike. Find out before you buy.
Hello from (well right now in) Arizona.
WELCOME...from a fellow Virginian, now transplated to easy retirement living to SW FL.
Try to shoot all the DEMO models you can find before you buy. Obviously YOU are the best judge of what feels good to you.
