Hey everyone. I'm Andy. I'm one of the new kids on the block. I live in Monterey County. I grew up around guns and shot with my Pop. I've been away from firearms for quite a long time. It's finally time to add something else into my crazy schedule that I have always enjoyed...shooting. I'm in the market for a handgun. Something smooth and easy to handle for the wifey and I. I also got two kids which will be learning to shoot. They have been learning gun safety from nerf guns to now air soft. It's time to finally trust them enough to have a real firearm in the house and teaching them to use it and respect it. I look forward to reading and learning from all of you. Thanks for this forum. Take care.

Cool. Grew up in Salinas. Mom still lives there too. What's the best store in the county to shop, etc.?

Welcome
Salinas Here too, the only actual gun store in Salinas is Hunters Supply. Big 5, has select rifles/shotguns, and ammo, they tend to carry the same 5 or 6 models of shotguns, and same 5 models of rifles. Markleys in Watsonville, has an indoor pistol range (or 22 rifle), and a really good selection of pistols, and probably a ton of rifles/shotguns, you can also rent pistols there, to see if there is a particular model you and the wife likes prior to a purchase. they probably have a hundred pistols available for rent.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes everyone. Sorry for my delay. My mind has been distracted. I appreciate the insight on the shops. I've been to both Markley's and Hunter Supply quite a bit but not as a serious buyer yet. I'm taking my HSC test soon so that it's out of the way when I'm ready to actually buy. The more I think about it, I may end up with a shotgun for home security. I've actually never shot one before... :eek: ...not acceptable! We'll see...either way I'm saving. Thanks again everyone.
