got my first handgun today
buddy of mine showed me around the area and led me to a little hole in the wall gun shop that looked ready to take over france........ok, bad example.
anyhoo, got me Glock .45
damn the man that breaks in my house. after my dog attacks his ankle, he's got a .45 waiting behind door #2.

i was looking at getting one last year. it was a hk .45 it was soooo nice but it was also like $750. i think its best i dont own one while on tren. i see bad things going down.

h&k's were a little pricey. the glock i got was ~570bucks. decent price i thought.
as for gear with weapons. if you have that type personality, then yeah, stay away from firearms.
no offense intended, but all the gear in the world doesn't give permission to make an ass out of yourself. it's a myth anyway.

I got my first handgun about 6 years ago and absolutely LOVE IT.
Sig Sauer P226 in 9mm - not the biggest boomer at the range but it's one of the most (if not #1) reliable and best designed handguns in the world.
Glocks are nice too but I think my next one will be a nickel plated Colt Python revolver - those things are just about as gorgeous as a firearm can be.

Being a Canadian I really don't understand the American fascination with guns. More importantly with hand guns. Guns for hunting I can understand but nothing else.

Well I'm not a behavioral psychologist but I was born in Lebanon (though not Lebanese) and lived there till I was 5 before moving to the States, so that could have something to do with it.Originally Posted by houseman
Basically I look at it as any other hobby, albeit one that needs to be taken more seriously and handled with much more care than most others.
The guns I own are either for target shooting at gun ranges or can be used for hunting purposes. I don't own what are considered to be "assault" weapons, but that's not because I have something against them, only because I havent gotten around to purchasing any yet.
Let me just say though that in the eyes of the (especially liberal) government officials, steroids are the new "guns".

If you were ever in a situation where you needed one, you'd understand. A few things are underneath the US fascination with guns. One, a free populace is an armed populace, because that's the ultimate determinant of where the power of a nation originates: who has the weapons. Two, an armed populace is a safer one. Criminals look for easy victims, not ones that shoot back. They're not in it for the challenge. Three, guns are awesome. They're beautifully made, fun to shoot and practice with, have long histories and make a great hobby. Four, they require discipline and responsibility, and one of the steps toward manhood in the US used to be when your dad judged you old enough and responsible enough to handle the guns, be it for protection or hunting. The associations remain.Originally Posted by houseman
Being an American I don't understand why Canadians tack the word "hey" on the end of every sentence. But it's cute when chicks do it, so I never really minded.

Post some pictures of them if you can guys. I was thinking of getting a Glock Compact as well. But I was thinking of getting a 9mm. Not really sure what I want, either that or a Beretta (like I shot with in the military).

Well there is the mentality that everyone has gun so I am at a disadvantage and could lose my life if I don't have one.Originally Posted by houseman

I never really liked glocks that much, but i did get a Desert Eagle Mark XIX .44 mag which i love to shoot. So i went out i bought the barrel and magazine to convert it to a .50 cal. but my hand starts to hurt around bullet 4 or 5 so i switched it back.

just wandered onto the thread, nice choice bee, i keep my 21 by the bed every night. you should be able to find 13 rnd mags pretty easy with the ban lifted. it's a very reliable tack driver.
