Just bought my first handgun ever

Hello all. I just bought my first ever handgun: a G19. I have no experience with handguns other than shooting at a range. I plan to get my CHL soon and also take some tactical classes to learn what the heck I'm doing. I'll be looking for guidance. Thanks in advance for your patience with my noob questions.

Great Place to be for tips. I have been a glock owner for a little over a week and the folks here have already gotten me straightened out and improving my skills!

You picked a winner, good size, good centerfire caliber, good reliable platform. You also have a good plan to get training with it. After you get the training, practice the hell out of what you learned, and most of all, have fun!

(and welcome!)

Excellent. Welcome to the wonderful world of handguns (and Glocks.)

Now, what are the Four Rules of Gun Safety?

Welcome aboard and congratulations on the G19.

Okay, your next Glock will be a G26, and then.....
