    A valueable resource for the beginer, a comparison site

    i have stumbled upon a site that gives specs about many guns on todays markets. they list 75 manufacturers and over 3500 individual handguns, along with the specs, defense rankings, msrp, and a metric butt ton of other info... and the best thing, it will let you make side by side comparisons of 4 different pistols at a time.... the site is free and no login needed..... i have been looking at it for a couple hours now, looks pretty good.... and no, i dont get anything for recommending it, just thought it would help some of us...

    I found this last year and have used it for comparison shopping and for general education. One of the features I like the best is the "recoil" evaluation. I do wish they would take specific ammo into consideration (at least bullet weight). But I have found it does a good job in a relative sense when I go back and look at various guns I have owned. You don't have to worry about the meaning of the parameters, just look at the values for a few guns you have experience with and then you can feel better applying it to new guns. I have found it very useful in searching for a small CC gun. If you like math, you can click on "more details" and get the actual formulas used.

    Well this is the year of the gun for me. Went to a range a couple of times and have ideas on what to purchase. IMHO a .22 handgun is a gd start so purchasing a used High Standard Supermatic trophy, wanted a good mid level plinker. Honestly I prefer shooting a .45 long barrel to a 9mm, so looking at .45. Ammo pricing is a factor tho. Have a chance at a Kimber Ultra conceal for a great price and will shoot it this weekend. The only experience I can compare it to tho is shooting a Springfield RO and a Glock .45. I preferred the RO but the Glock gives option of 9mm too which will work into the budget nicely. The Kimber has the shorter barrel so I'm concerned I may not be as accurate.
    Feedback is greatly appreciated especially if you've shot all 3

    I have shot many handguns and I'm at a tough decision. I'm on a budget can't go above 400 dollars. Its between the kel-tec p11,pf9 or Taurus model 65 4inch .357, or charter arms bulldog .44spl. Thanks in advance for advise

    Your link no longer works. Just thought I would give you a heads up.

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
