The keys to any shooting is still the basics. Going out to the range to shoot bullets is just that if you can't hit the broad side of a barn.
well said dan. this is why my collection is so varied. i shoot all my firearms on a regular basis, and try new ones out. if i am not good with it or happy with the way it performs for me, then it is usually sold or traded. many months ago, i traded a Mossberg ATR100 in 30-06 that i was not happy with, for a Taurus Tracker 44 magnum. wasn't for sure i would like the 44, but have come to really like the way it shoots and have come to be a decent shot with it. i never really liked the Mossberg and will replace it soon with anther Marlin XL7 in 30-06. i have a couple that i keep for sentimental reasons, but the majority of my collection are guns i shoot.

I gather from the first "sentence" that you already own at least one handgun and are planning to buy your first new handgun. It might help to know what you already have and whether you are looking for something similar or different.

it would help if people would give a few specifics as to the intended use of the handgun! more information as to what they are looking for, what types appeal to them and such.
