Perfect Pistols
My dad and I will be getting our FOID's soon and i'm really excited but we dont really know what firearms we will be purchasing. Can you guys help us out and give me a list of some handguns that you think we should purchase? Thanks :)

Well . . . what do you like to shoot? If you don't know, spend a few weeks going to a shooting range where you can rent handguns in various makes, models, and calibers. Otherwise you will be wasting your money.

Keep in mind the use of the firearm, range, home protection, possible concealed carry? That will help determine size or caliber. Would you rather have something like a glock, or a 1911? It would also be nice to know your shooting experience. Have you shot s 9mm, 45-acp, 357? This will just help give us details to help you find the right gun.

well we're looking to purchase a few handguns, so maybe something like a glock, 1911 (kimber), or sig sauer. and my uncle took me to a shooting range when i was in florida and we shot glocks and a taurus pt840. oh and one last thing, we live in illinois so for the next couple months until illinois passes the concealed carry law, we wont be carrying anything

Consider what kind of safety you like on your gun. Are you left handed?

da_fame 04-27-2013 01:13 PM

no, we're both right handed

Where are you in Illinois? I might have a few guns to let you try to help you make a decision.

Everyone should own at least one 22LR. Either a pistol or a rifle is fine. But it should be a law if you ask me.
