Kinda getting the gun bug, still a lot to learn but i'd like to get a conceal/carry license (just turned 21) and pretty decent handgun. Still open to my options, but I just want to throw out a few I've been looking at -Ruger LCP 380 -Glock 19 -Ruger LC9 -S&W SD9 or SD40 I guess what I'm getting at is I can live with a price range up to $500 or so just to start out. I've shot some before, not a handgun though. I guess of the ones mentioned, would any be better than another for someone starting out? I know this is all pretty basic but what kind of things should I be looking for? I kind of think I won't start carrying all the time, just be nice to kind of have to shoot for fun or maybe carry in certain situations. So what would be best for me? Would I be best off just going to a gun shop/range local and trying some different guns out, is it really a lot of personal preference? Anyway, hopefully I'll start learning pretty quick because I know these newbie forums posts can get annoying after a while. Just want to get something I'll be happy with the first time.
