So i'm picking up my first purchase in a few days. a nice new glock 17. Unfortunatley, i live in NJ and had to wait for my background check, FID Card and pistol purchase permit to arrive, but everything went through without a hitch.
i guess my question is, when i pick this up (merry christmas to me), can i just head right to a range and use it? See, in NJ, there is no where to rent/demo pistols while at a range. They just don't do it. So a friend of mine has been taking me, each time with a different pistol of his.
but what should i do before firing for the first time? or, just go and have fun as soon as I have it in my possesion?
I like the 17 as a first pistol for a few reasons. but a biggie is that my wife seems to be able to handle it to (even though she is still getting used to the idea of a pistol in the house).
