What was the first gun you bought
- 04-02-2011, 04:17 PM
As others have stated, you'll want to determine what your going to use the weapon system for:
Home defense, range toy, personal defense, concealed carry, etc, etc...
That will narrow down the choices a bit.
If your not comfortable with firearms you might think about a revolver or a stryker fire weapon system (glock, XD M&P, no external hammer, no external safety)
The FNP(X) will be double action/single action and it may or may not have a external safety (depending on model)
I would reccomend buying something that is being used in a military/police contract by NATO forces for obvious reasons.
Here are some examples:
Any gock (except a 10mm)
HK USP, p2000, p30
Beretta M9 (although I dont like these personally)
All of those should fall in your price range (some used)
Take a look at Magpuls DVD "The art of the tactical handgun" It is hands down the best instructional dvd ever.

regardless of whether its loaded or not, if I were an intruder and i heard that sound, i wouldn't stick around long enough to see if it were loaded

I also have a handmade carbon steel, battle ready katana in case i want to keep things silent lol
I want to get a handgun, i just dont have the cash right now. I want a .45 1911, probably H&K, i saw one for like 750 at the range and i heard H&K is much more reliable. If i had a handun i wouldnt mind having it loaded cuz i can keep that in a drawer, cant do that with a shotty

I've got a savage model 99 .308 winchester for hunting. I want this for home defense and sickness.
S&W Governor .410 / .45 Shotgun Revolver
S&W has introduced a .410 chambered revolver with a light scandium frame called "The Governor" (urrgghhh ... a governor is more important than a judge, right?) . The Taurus Judge has been selling so well I am surprised it took so long for another company to copy the concept.
Unlike the Judge, it can take .45 ACP in addition to the .45 Long Colt and .410.
It comes in a laser (crimson trace) and non-laser version. The MSRP is $679 for the non-laser model

I have the XD40... i love the gun, but the profile is so damn wide. its not the easiest gun to conceal carry due to the thickness of it. it doesnt help that im 185lbs on a 5'9" frame, so anything that pokes out from my body looks suspicious.
One word of advice... (IMO) dont buy keltec. i just sold mine. they "worK" but its way to easy to limp wrist it and jam a round. if you are shooting in a self defense scenario, you wont have the time to lock your arms and take the perfect stance. I had the pf9 and its too much caliber for a pocket gun. id rather spend another $250 and get something thats flawless. ive heard better things about their .380's, but Im no longer a fan of bargain guns.
my first gun was a Ruger P90. my buddy was trading it in for a H&K .40 and the store was going to give him $250 on a trade in, so i just gave him the cash. Great gun.. i keep it next to the bed. too big for me to conceal though.

Since we're posting pics now, here's my "home defense" tools. These are the badboys I have lying around the house. I'm too lazy to get into the safe to pull out the rifles right now.
-Springfield Armory XD-M 40 (match grade barrel)
-Mossberg 590 Combat (ext 9-round mag, 4-round speedfeed stock, 6-round side saddle, ghost ring sights)

I thought I'd share a pic of my newest toy. I picked it up last weekend at a gun show. This thing is freakin' beautiful and an absolute beast; I really like the crimson trace laser digital camo grips it came stock with. Even though many Kimber models are fairly expensive, you certainly get what you pay for with the craftmanship; it's tough to beat the quality of a Kimber, imo.

My first gun I ever purchased was a Mossberg 12 Gauge Shotgun. I remember being thrilled as hell.

My first was a Taurus Mill Pro PT 145. Bought off a buddy of mine. Was so good I bought another Taurus OSS 9mm. Then I got a Bersa Thunder 22 for my wife to learn on. My latest was a Taurus 327 fed magnum revolver snubbie.

Mossberg 500 Tactical 12ga. Easy to maneuver around corners in your home, and I believe, one of the best home defense weapons out there.
