I've been talking with a good friend at work about this, and I just want to convey the same thing to you that I pleaded to him:
A gun is a serious investment. I know that sounds cliche and cheeky, but it's true. A financial investment? Sure, it can be. Look at how much gun prices have soared in the last 6 months.
But it's more of an investment in your life and a passion that'll bite you once and have you hooked forever.
Don't sell yourself short now due to impatience. Take that $200.00, shove it in a coffee can, and add to it every single day. Every time you pick up a dime off the ground, throw it in the damn coffee can.
Save up that $$ and buy yourself a quality firearm. Not only because you get what you pay for, and you life may one day depend on it, but because you don't want to look back on your purchase with regret.
$200.00 on a glock? If someone parts w/ their Glock for that price, there's a reason for it, and the only reason can be that it's toast and not worth firing...potentially dangerous.
And you don't want that.
