Hello all! I was researching what gun would be best for me and looking in to my CHL when I came across your site. I do not currently own a gun but have always been around guns. All of my family own guns, hunt and my mother had her CHL. I am a single mother and have decided I need to get a gun for protection. I would like some advice on what weapon would be best for me. I am looking for a smaller gun with less recoil but with stopping power. I also need one that is less expensive as I have recently become disabled. My children are teenagers and I very much want to educate them in the use of the weapon as well. I do plan to get my CHL as well. I greatly appreciate any advice you can give me!
