Where does an absolute beginner start? Are there classes for people who don't yet own a gun, or must a student bring his own? I would like to own one at some point, but 1) I don't want it in the house until I have some basic knowledge and skill, 2) I wouldn't begin to know which one to get, and 3) I still have a temperamental teenager in the house and even once I know what I'm doing, it might be better to just keep practicing at a range for a while than have a weapon at home.
