Hello MP-Pistol world!

I am a new owner from Pittsburgh, PA, as well as a new owner of an M&P Shield 9mm. I always enjoyed shooting as a hobby, but never "pulled the trigger" (really bad pun) on a handgun of my own. My 12 gauge has always served as the primary home defense weapon or trap shoot gun, and I have always said "one day" I'll get a handgun and my CCL. Well, with the birth of our baby girl last month, the time has finally come where I choose to be my own last line of defense. I picked up an M&P Shield 9 last week and got to put about 15 round through it over the weekend. I'm excited to take it to the range next weekend and run a bunch of break in rounds through it.

I am here to learn, as gaining knowledge is one of my favorite things to do, and to become part of a larger community.

Thanks all!

Welcome to the forum from central Maine!

I escaped from behind enemy lines in NJ myself, Ramsey for approx' 20 of them, then a few in Pequannock. We escaped in '80 but still have family there. They come up here to visit, I won't re-enter that much less than free state. Where were you in The Peoples Democratic Republic of NJ?

It was bad enough for gun owners back then, much worse now. My brother comes up here and when in the LGS he makes the comment,"It's probably illegal for me to even look at all this stuff you can buy up here.".

Oh well, now you're in a state that has much more freedom.

They are certainly two very different worlds. I am from Ocean County, the lovely (er was lovely) town of Jackson. I miss home but I do certainly think the Pittsburgh area is far better

Welcome from the state of WA and congrats on both the new baby and the pistol. This is a good place to hang out and get questions answered when you need to.
