Hello forum,

I am in Northern Ca and am new to the forums and new to being a handgun owner. I'm new to almost everything regarding guns. I am in the midst of purchasing a Sig P238 and this will be what is on my CCW permit. Once I receive my Sig, I will do my 16 hour class then complete my permit.

I am more excited than I expected to be and 10 years ago I would have never thought I would be a gun owner or permitted to carry concealed. I am very serious and completely understand the huge responsibility involved with owning a weapon, which is why it's taken me so long to get to this point. I have promised myself and my hubby that i will be at the range often . There are many reasons why I am at this point now, primarily protection of myself and my children.

I am sure I will have many questions as time goes on. For now, Hello everyone!

LdyApxr Well, first things first. Take your HSC test(I think it's $25). Rent different guns so you know what you like.

Apply for the CCW as soon as possible as it can take a wait. Where do you live? Hubby, son and I have a pretty wide variety of firearms and we generally shoot at Center Mass in Vacaville. If you're close, let us know.

Thank you and I am not too far. I've rented and shot several guns. I have already completed most of my CCW. The wait period is on for my sig. Hubby is well versed with firearms but it is new to me. I was always nervous around them, so I am overcoming that with experience and education.

Thank you very much for your reply. What do you firearms do you enjoy shooting?

Sorry to dip into the ladies' forum...

Something I've heard at my range frequently: Never let your husband, boyfriend, or father teach you how to shoot. Supposedly it always causes trouble and bad feelings.

When my wife grabs a gun, I have to shoot from the bench which is furthest away.

Good luck on your journey!

welcome to calguns' Ladies Forum: as you can tell there are men that chime in here from time to time, too.

you've said something important that i think gets overlooked lots of times: gunownership IS a great responsibility. those that acknowledge that are, i think, the best of gun owners.

welcome!

Welcome. I also am from NorCal, but Upper NorCal if you are Sac. Just got my CCW, it wasn't that difficult, and I recently split sheets after 34 years so having my little friend along for the ride has been really reassuring.

I know that I haven't met anyone at any range that is rude. Everyone is cool. Of course you are carrying a loaded weapon... that might have something to do with the everyoness Miss Manners.

Welcome.

Teresa

I totally agree. This is just asking for trouble, to let a SO teach you to shoot, drive, play golf, etc.

We're not that way at all. DH has re-introduced me to shooting, helps me with my stance, shoots next to me and is often my range officer. We have a blast together.

Well, every marriage is different, SacRN. Do what you're comfortable with, but don't let him run you over. You probably wouldn't anyway....
