Greetings from Massachusetts
My name is Eric and I have been lurking here for about a month so I thought I would register and introduce myself. I'm brand new to shooting (never even handled a firearm of any type until my basic handgun course last month) and have found the information available in this forum to be immensely useful. I applied for my license exactly one month ago and expect to wait at least another month to receive it. I've spent this time shooting at a local public range for practice and researching my first purchase.
Once I finally receive my LTC, I plan to buy a 9mm Sig 2022 because I felt very comfortable with the usability of the P226 and P229 but can't afford either of those right now. I realize that there are differences between these models, not the least of which is the polymer construction of the 2022, but have read good things in forums like this one and am comfortable with other relatively lightweight handguns I have used. Plus, with the money I save I might be able to pickup a .22 for additional practice without breaking the bank.
I look forward to contributing to this forum and I thank all of you for the knowledge you've provided thus far.
