    Hey everyone. My name is Ben and I'm a Purdue student who grew up in south bend. I've been around firearms since birth, I've hunted since I was able, I currently own 1 CZ .22LR and 1 12ga. Bennilli Nova Pump. I'm looking at getting my first pistol soon as I am turning 21 tomorrow and I wanted to get some additional knowledge about some of the models I'm looking at before I buy one.

    I'll probably post another thread somewhere else on the site, or just look up past posts, but currently these are my choices:

    Kimber 1911 SIS
    Sig 1911 (not sure which model)
    Sig P2022 (.40cal)

    Since I can't afford to spend a lot on a gun right now, the P2022 is looking like the best choice. Also, I wasn't a fan of how stiff the kimber was and the fact that you have to pull back on the slide to release the action.

    any opinions would be great. Thanks for reading my first post.
    Ben

    Welcome to the site!

    A SIG (any SIG) is rarely a poor choice.

    thanks for the replies guys, and sorry, I meant and SP2022, but Im sure you know what I meant.

    So you think that would be a nice first pistol? are there any good sites that have good deals on firearms you would recommend? I know people have been buying arms up like mad lately so I want to get it as soon as I can.
