So I just moved to a new house with a friend of mine. I live with another female, in the middle of the woods. We are in our 20's, and I would feel a lot safer with some sort of protection in the house. I grew up in a family of hunters, and have been around guns my whole life. I'm looking at getting a hand gun, and I'm curious what features I should look for...or perhaps a good gun to start with. I'm getting my CPL shortly, so I would like to start looking for guns.
