    Welcome!

    you should also think about getting a restricted license. Lots of fun shooting pistols too especially those 22LR pistols.

    I did consider it. But realistically don’t foresee ever purchasing a pistol or restricted firearm due to the transportation hassles etc.

    Transportation hassles are about zero. Worth it.

    I think he means, he has to put a trigger lock on it.

    The government and the media would like you to believe that it’s not worth the hassle so you won’t get your rpal, that is enough reason to get your rpal.

    I was talking about restricted pal at the gun shop, and was told you need to send in a email or call in stating when and where your going with a restricted fire arm. Not a huge deal but just not something I really need.

    Still considered it but honestly I don’t foresee getting or really wanting to get a pistol. It was fun to shoot for sure but not something I would want I think. Much more enjoyment from the rifles. So may as well keep that $60 and extra day in class for ammo

    You never need to call in before going to the range. Only believe half the things you hear in a gun shop. Maybe less than half.

    Welcome! Don't fear the RPAL. I was in the same boat as you many years ago and I'm so glad I got it. I have a small collection of handguns but I love them all. Trips to the range just wouldn't be the same without them. Happy shooting!

    Like Grimlock says, there's no "calling in" involved with restricted stuff. Depending on where you are, shooting restricted is usually less fuss than non-restricted. You have to join a club in most places anyway.
    You will want to learn the maintenance stuff too. Even a firearm you don't ever shoot for whatever reason needs periodic cleaning and greasing to prevent rust.
