Recently bought first handgun
I just recently bought my first handgun (first gun of any kind!). I'm very excited to find this forum as I am sure I can find some great advice. I bought a .38 Ruger LCR. This gun is actually the second gun I purchased but I took the semi auto back and got the revolver. I had a lot of trouble racking the semi auto. I am a 53 year old female. I know there are ladies out there that can rack and handle the semi auto's but I am just not ready for them just yet. I almost gave up on the idea of a gun because of my very brief experience with the semi auto, but...my husband encouraged me to go back to the gun shop and look at revolvers and I ended up with the Ruger. I already feel more comfortable with it. It just seems less complicated. I haven't shot it yet, but I hope to get to the range next week. My husbands concern is reload and capaciity as this will be my defensive weapon, but its a starting place for me.
I look forward to comments and advice as I get started.
