First thread in WMD I am looking to purchase my first handgun. I just finished the CCH course for NC and now have 3 months till my appointment to get printed and get my permit. I have shot on average, once a year for the last 8 years. Glock, S&W, Springfield, Kimber,.... almost every common brand has been shot at some point. I have shot .22, .38, .40, .45, and 9mm at some point. I recently put about 300 rounds through a rental G23 and like it a lot. The only handgun I have been more accurate with was a Kimber (Custom 2 IIRC?). I have also shot G17, G19, and one other but don't remember the model. I believe the G23 has a lot of benifits in size and stopping power for CC and home defense. Does anyone have any input before I bite the bullet and buy the first pistol? Both of my parents have revolvers, and I am set on semi-auto. Thanks for any input.
