    First time at the range.

    Took a private NRA class this past weekend and shot my first handgun. Targets are 9" the first one is two S&W revolvers a .22lr and a .38. Second is from a Kimber compact custom shop .45. Not sure of the exact distance, it seemed about 15ft. Had a great time! Now waiting the 2-3 months to get the phone call to pick up my permit.

    Congrats for 1) taking up shooting and 2) for having enough common sense as a newbie to get professional instruction!

    Yes, but you can't buy one without the permit. There is also an eligibility cert you can get but i'm not sure how that works. But I have neither. The guns were my instructors accept for the Kimber, he borrowed it from a friend because I mentioned I was interested in them. I thought that was really nice of him.

    Thanks todd!

    yeah, that is pretty cool of him. also, I wasnt sure because here, if you can buy it you can carry it, as long as its not concealed. you need the permit for that part of it.

    Yeah CT is a little more strict with it all. I'd imagine you can get the certificate to purchase, but then you cant carry I'm assuming ? So it seems pointless to not just get the CCW permit.
