Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Yes you do. It can not be shipped to your house. It HAS to be shipped to a dealer and you fill out the paperwork and pick it up from them. Most likely you will pay ffl fees on both ends.

he shouldnt have to pay ffl fees on both ends, should only have to pay when he picks up the gun from his local dealer/ffl holder, worm dirt if your looking at buying online check around your town for a local gunstore or pawn store and see what they charge to trasfer a firearm, should be around $25.00 atleast thats the going rate around here

For a first gun, I'd go with a well known manufacturer and a bullet proof design. Someone already recommended a Glock... although I can't say I've come across a Glock I like yet. I'd recommend a Springfield XD or XDm. A Ruger SR9 would be worth checking out as well.

Now if you've got a bigger budget, I'd also check a Smith M&P, Browning Hi Power, or a 1911 in 9mm.

An M&P is less expensive than an Xdm and about the same as glocks and xd's.



A local guy here has a compact m&p 45CP WITH NIGHT SIGHTS FOR $500
