    hello from missouri

    hey im new here...im 22 and im going to apply for my concealed weapon license....and hopefully purchase a handgun.

    I have been around weapons and guns my whole life as my father owns anywhere from ar-15's, ak-47, glocks, smith and wessons, etc...

    my main reason for purchasing a hand gun is for fun (shooting range) and of course home protection.

    Two gun companys im looking at right now is Beretta and HK...which do u guys recommend between the two?

    thanks and hope to learn a lot from you guys!

    Welcome!

    HK or Beretta...?

    Between the two... Beretta, but you'll be getting different opinions from everyone... so take it all in and make your decision.

    I'm not that familiar with HK and I use to own 2 Berettas... a Beretta 92FS and a Beretta Cougar 8000F. Both great guns, but I was bitten by the 1911 bug and the AR15 bug and sold them.

    Stop by the Beretta section and check out some info...

    The 1911 is a semi auto handgun designed by John M Browning for the military. It was adopted by the military in 1911 and it's most popular chambering is 45 ACP. It's also available in 22LR, 9mm, 38 sper, 40 S&W, 10 mm, 45 GAP and 51 GI. We have a section devoted to the 1911 here, take a look at it.

    Welcome to the forum, glad you're here! New guy buys gigars.

    Welcome aboard.

    I have owned both Berettas and Hks.

    I have owned a few 92s and a Cougar over the years. And, I used to own a HK USP fullsize, and I currently own the compact USP.

    If the fullsize USP is not too big for your hand (I have small hands, and this was my problem - why I sold it), I'd recommend it over the Beretta. The frame mounted safety is very nice. And, U can leep the gun cocked and locked (the safety on, but the gun cocked - like a 1911).

    Triggers can vary from specimen to specimen, but the fullsize USP I had had a sweet SA pull on it.

    The flip side is that U can change out a spring and lighten the DA pull on the Beretta by maybe 2lbs.
