    Welcome to the insane asyl... um.. to the fun group! I can vouch for the EC9s. I've put a few thousand rounds through mine and it only had hiccups with one brand of ammo. But using Winchester White Box for practice and Federal Train + Defend JHP for home protection the EC9 shoots well. I ended up getting a Beretta for my carry piece, but again I will say the EC9 is a good starter gun.

    Welcome aboard! Make sure that you pick a handgun that YOU can shoot well and that has a reputation for good reliability. You have the right idea by going to the range and trying different handguns. Good luck....... be safe and have fun.

    Welcome to OSA. Go to Big Boys, try a few out. Arrange to rent a 22 semi and take the SDA Class ASAP. OSBI isn’t that slow, you will have your permit before you know it. Plus, you can then concentrate on selecting a gun for carry and some training.

    Another great choice is the Walther PPS M2. Widely available at usually right around $300 if you can catch one of the frequent sales. Shield is also a fine pistol. Of course, Glocks are just fine too.

    But, be warned; guns are like potato chips. One will turn to two to three etc.

    Gun Belts/Holsters. You can’t go wrong with a good leather gun belt. However, if you are going to carry IWB, and you are carrying a relatively light pistol, a good nylon belt like the Wilderness 5 stitch is a good choice too. Carrying OWB with a heavier pistol is going to call for stiff, thick leather and a real gun belt. A properly fitted holster to your gun is a necessity. Once you know what pistol you want, we will be glad to help steer you to an appropriate holster. Don’t buy one of those cheap jobs at Walmart! Might as well throw your money in the trash. Good holsters can be had for $50 up .... and I do mean up!

    And so it goes with the gun safe ----- "This one will be big enough to hold anything I will ever have, including the jewelry and legal papers." Yah, right.

    I think you mean they are more like rabbits. You get one and the next thing you know you are trying to fit them all in the small safe you bought...
