Handguns are harder to learn to shoot correctly as well. Start with a rifle and move on from there.
Even better, buy an adult sized/powered air rifle.

I'd say I pity you folks, but I used to live in the people's republic of New York City. Connecticut as far better gun law, fortunately.
sounds to me like you should just go to a shooting range pay your fee and go nuts. the headache youll go through to own something you wont really use outside of a club anyway. probably isnt worth it.
go to the range instead
The range near you might not have guns available for rent. Or, much like the RA Center, they might not be what you would call quality pieces, on account of being older than dirt and used hard since forever.
You cannot customize a range gun.
You cannot dry fire at home with a range gun.
You cannot go to other ranges.
You would not want to compete with a loaner.
You’ll have a hard time getting to the range to borrow a gun during the zombocalypse.
Don't Canada's firearms storage laws make dry firing at home effectively a crime?
The FAC ( Firearms Acquisition Certificate ) application form asks :
Have you ever been convicted of assault or other crime of violence or been banned from owning weapons or explosives ?
I don't know for certain that if you answer ' Yes' - you will get denied. But just having to answer the question has been enough to keep me from applying. I have a couple of assault convictions from waaay back.

Except of course in Quebec, where they really want control, and have petitioned to be able to salvage information from the Federal gun registry.
