Just what we need, another Richie Rich from Richmond, VA.
What? The Left Coast? Well, that makes all the difference!

Yes, welcome!

Richmond is home to probably the best remaining, all-round shooting range in the Bay Area. So you're in a good geographical place for a new shooter.

What firearm are you thinking of getting?

Howdy and :welcome: from several miles south of SwampGrouch in Oregon.

First gun, eh? Learn right and get a Ruger MK II/III. Get one soon, as I hear they are going downhill with the new model MK IV. ;)

That is cruel.

Do not get a Mark II or III. Bacchus is a kidder.

LOL. Stumbled on this forum again- back after almost 3 years. Finally pulled the trigger on a Ruger LCR .22LR about 2 months ago. Wow, its been fun. Gone through almost 500 rounds, about half shot by my fiance, who has never handled a firearm before. Been to Indoor ranges, outdoors- best has been on BLM land. Well, keep shooting, LOL

Welcome back! How are you liking the LCR? Shot anything else so far on your journeys?

I shot a Glock 19 and 26, but figured this is my first gun and, she's also going to be shooting it, we"ll start with something very easy.

Smart move! And good choice going with the Ruger, they make solid stuff and their warranty department is nothing short of excellent. Happy you've gotten your girl into it, shooting with my girl has been so rewarding, it's awesome! She loves it and it's something we can have something of an informal friendly competitive spirit with.

Congrats! Glad you didn’t get the Mk II/III now that the Mk IV offers easy take-downs for cleaning. LCR should be a fun plinker (by Ruger) as well.

Well, one thing about getting your significant other into the sport is it’ll make you a more honest person. (Now you can’t cheat on her and expect to get away with it.)

Greetings from over the hill in Walnut Creek. Whenever you have a itch to shoot a ruger automatic (think pre mark) or mark ii hunter give me a shout out. Think my range is opening by end of summer but open to 22s and shotgun currently.
Richmond is nice for run and gun but kinda pricey for non members public range. 2 bucks for 2 hours is too steep for me.
San leandro is pretty cool, Livermore good but windy. Try Los Altos? Beautiful range 20 bucks all day. Tons of bays and well kept.

Congrats on the new gun. Better stock up before July 1st. Ammo laws changing and dont want to be that one box guy at the range. O and watch out, they tend to multiply in the safe.

Welcome from Nevada, Las Vegas.

I like the Ruger LCR 22 - it shoots well for a sub nose.
