    hey everybody

    hi my name is joe. ive always been interested in firearms but didnt really have the opportunities to own or use them while growing up (my father and mother dont own any weapons). about 5 years ago however my grandfather got me a .22 marlin rifle. its been lots of fun, but ive really wanted to get into handguns.

    well today i turned 21! and someday soon ill be making my first handgun purchase! im excited and i look foward to hearing from you guys and learning as well

    Welcome from Alabama. Try out as many different handguns as you can until you find one that suites your needs.

    Welcome JWF. that first handgun purchase will be your most import gun purchase. not to mention all the choices you will have being your first, but you will learn a lot from your first handgun.

    have fun shopping and looking forward to see what you get.

    laterz.

    Welcome from southeast Texas. Find a range that rents and try to shoot and/or fondle as many as you can. You'll find what you like through experimentation.

    im a bit tired of shooting my .22. its fun, but im looking for somthing with a bit larger caliber, probably a
    9mm.

    i love the beretta M92FS' apearance. i have yet to hold it, but i hear mostly good things about it. if i like the weight, and it fits my hands well, then it that will probably be my first purchase. any thoughts or feelings about this gun?

    edit: i forgot to mention that i HAVE fired larger calibers before. ive shot my grandfathers 30-06, a friends 9mm revolver, and some 20GA shotguns. just thought id mention that gun with heavier kick isnt somthing entirly new to me haha
