    First Time Handgun Owner from MN

    Hello everyone. I recently purchased and shot my first handgun: M&P 22. I have never shot a handgun before, but wanted one for home protection and to go out shooting with as a recreational hobby. I brought it to the range for the first time last weekend and fell in love with shooting. I am planning on going to the range as much as possible to familiarize myself with shooting and increasing my shooting confidence and accuracy. Maybe 6-12 months down the road I will want to purchase a larger caliber for range and home protection - initial impressions would be a M&P 9c or 40c but need to give some other manufacturers a chance i suppose. I am also possibly thinking of getting my conceal and carry. I will be posting in the forums for advice on what my next investment to make, but for now I will enjoy getting to know my 22.

    Thanks all and I look forward to becoming a regular posting member.
