First time buyer. Which gun to get
I am a new gun enthusiast. I am looking to get a new gun. I have been reading up a bit and really have no clue what to get. I am looking for a pistol, no revolver, pretty high quality, not too expensive, just a good gun. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Re: First time buyer. Which gun to get
Being a "new gun enthusiast" brings up several ideas, however, it really boils down to what you're intended use is for. If it's just for the range, then a decent quality .22 would be good. .22 caliber handguns are good to learn with. If your ambitions are elsewhere, like home defense, possible carry, hunting, etc, then you need to figure out which is most important. It seems that you want a semi-auto, so there's a start. A .22 is cheap to shoot and generally pretty inexpensive to buy. Other calibers/ models will cost more for both. If you intend it for hunting, then check your state laws, as most states won't allow but certain calibers. I kind of like Taurus because the price point vs quality is pretty good for new handguns. Used handguns will usually be just fine, but they're like buying a used car.
