Hi guys! Retired shooter in Virginia here. Been hunting and shooting for almost 50 years. I don't hunt anymore but still love to shoot. I currently own a Ruger Blackhawk .45 long colt which I bought around 1972. Still shoots like new. I'm joining now because I am entering into the concealed carry foray. After reading countless reviews of all brands and models, tons of you tube videos etc and doing some rental shooting, I've decided on the Ruger LC9S Pro model 9mm single stack. This is fun for me because after years of shooting this is an entirely new area of information. I've discovered a whole new culture!
