My 26 year-old son moved out into his own rental with a roommate. He said he has interest in getting a handgun, just for the house -- he'll think about carry sometime in the future. So he wanted advice about what to buy.

I told him it's not a very good time now for buying, but I think the first step should be a training class. Ideally it would be one that would provide the guns and let the students try several.

Are there any classes in the Memphis area geared for beginners (as opposed to, say, a concealed-carry permit class)?

I've taken him to the range a few times over the last fifteen years, but at the moment I don't have a collection of guns for him to try, and it might be better for him to be taught by a professional.

NRA should have list of instructors by area. They offer a basic pistol course which should work for him!
