I don’t have much experience with contracts in EVE. I few years ago I created a submitted a contract for my first cruiser, the Vexor. I wanted it cheaper than what was on the Market Place at that time and delivered to my home station. Shortly after outfitting my blockade runner, the Viator, I did two small courier contracts. However, the inherent danger of being setup for a kill or ransom was more risk than I wanted in my life at the time, so I promptly exited the courier trade.
