    Hello from a newbie in North Carolina

    Very excited to have just bought a G2c as my first ever gun purchase!

    I've shot guns before, in the US Navy ─but that was 50 years ago!!─ and at Front Sight in Pahrump, Nevada a couple of times 10-15 years ago. I also have a shotgun which I shoot in the woods once in a while. This is my first 'owned' handgun, though. Yeah, me!

    A few of my friends scorned my Taurus choice but I'm encouraged by the reviews I read and I couldn't resist the price ...at least until I know whether I'll enjoy shooting and get good enough at it to be confident at defending myself with it.

    I live in Raleigh, North Carolina and also spend significant time in rural Lexington County, South Carolina.

    I'll appreciate any tips on good ─newbie friendly─ ranges to shoot at.

    I've field stripped the gun and cleaned it thoroughly and lightly oiled it. I haven't shot it yet but will soon.

    I'm looking at YouTube tutorials on loading the magazines. That's my big challenge to start!

    Anyway, I've already learned a lot from this site and look forward to learning much more ...and one day helping others to learn, too.

    Thanks,

    Gerry E.

    For some reason, Taurus brings out the gun snob in some people. Mostly people who haven't owned or shot one.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.
