I'm not real comfortable with guns yet. But it is something I want to learn more about and practice with. There's a new gun range being built not very far from our house and I want to start going and shooting mostly for fun. The new range and store should be done in a couple months. I also want to renew my license to carry that I let expire. A few years back I bought a 9mm HK that I really liked, my intention was to carry, but I never got comfortable with it. I didn't go to the range and practice and consequently it has been just sitting doing nothing. I determined the reason I didn't carry it was that as a beginner it was just too big and I didn't make the effort to get comfortable with it. I'm looking again at guns, with the intention of carrying it all the time and going to the new range that will be very convenient to stop in and practice. I am looking at 3 guns and I wanted to get some thoughts from you guys about the guns, pros and cons, and just general advice. They are: 1.) Ruger LC9 -S 2.)S&W Shield 3.) Glock 43 I have seen all these guns and held them, but not shot them, and none of them stood out as feeling better than the others.
