New and seeking advice on first handgun purchase
Well I guess they don't come much greener guys, so here goes. My state just passed C.C. and I think its time to buy a handgun. A little history been an avid shotgun & rifle shooter for many yrs.. Both target & hunting are the types of shooting I've done but now want to get a reliable handgun for plinking & home or personal defense. Here's whats caught my eye Springfield XD series and the Smith & Wesson M&P I've been leaning towards 40cal as the cost is less than 45acp for ammo but will listen to a good argument for either cal or even entertain other recommendations. Also if you think there's some other handguns I need to consider now's the time to let me know. I plan on making a purchase in the next 2 months. Oh and one last thing guys would a handgun be a choice to consider or should I stick with new the first time around? Thanks for steering me in the right direction.
