Newbie just joined

Postby jdlott74 » Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:09 pm

Hi everybody.

I just joined and will be taking my CHL class on 10/23. I am married, have a 2 yr old. I have fairly new to the CHL world, but NOT new to shooting in general. I'm a country girl, grew up around guns, my husband is former military (USMC) and he is going to school his Associate in CJ to be able to get on with a PD. I love to go shoot at the range BUT it's hard right now with our schedule and with a 2 yr old in the house.

I am looking forward to doing my CHL this week and getting my own gun. We are trying to figure out what is going to be the best carry for me on body. I know eventually I'm going to get a concealment purse, but we're leaning toward Kangaroo or a regular holster. Not sure yet.

All I can say is welcome. One of the distaff should be able to give recommendations.

Welcome! I am kinda new to this too... waiting for plastic, but grew up with firearms and didn't get back into shooting until recently. Never realized how much I missed it.

I recommend doing some searches on "women and carry weapon" on this forum, as there have been several great threads recently. There is also a neat site for women's concealed carry that is a great resource called "Cornered Cat". If I were a little more board saavy I would link to the site and to the previous threads. But have fun searching and maybe someone will feel sorry for me and post those :oops:

There is a ladies forum on this board as well, and the moderators will get you added quickly once they figure out you are of the girl persuasion!

Welcome again!

Welcome! I'm new here as of about a week or two ago. Last weekend I bought my first (well, the first one for ME that I bought all my myself) gun. It's a S&W 642 .38 special +P. It's a snubbie and hammerless so it was recommended to me by most people I talked to it about for easy carry and conceal-ability. Taking my CHL class on November 6.

Anyway, wanted to welcome you. There's a ton of great info here to go swimming in. ;)
