Somewhat new to firearms. My city's gun violence is getting out of control so I think I need to be armed. For a starter pistol I purchase a Smith n Wesson shield 380 ez. I know there's much better out there but I'm on a budget. Didn't know at the time how expensive ammo is for a380 wow! Getting fingerprinted in a couple weeks then however long it takes to get my permit. Meanwhile I'll be taking lessons at the range. Hope to learn alot in this forum. Thanks!
