    Swing by the intro section and tell us a little bout yourself. Also what is your price range and caliber preference?

    Hi NewYorkGunner,

    Welcome to the FTF.

    Man, you went through all that, and now your

    first gun is going to be a Glock? You are making my

    head hurt.

    Is it an economic decision, or does the design hold some appeal

    for you?

    It's all personal choice, but a CZ75, Beretta 92, or any 1911A1

    would be more attractive to me, as a first choice.

    Have you tried anything out yet?

    You got your permit without already having a firearm? How much firearms experience do you have?

    I am also a new gunner. I would suggest doing alot of research so you don't make any rash decisions. I just picked up my first, an xdm 9 and can say the time I spent looking into it was valuable. Being a novice I chose the 9 so i can build from that and move to a larger caliber with ease. I also enjoy how i spend less on ammo. That's what I picked and im very happy with it. Go test drive some you like and don't always listen to fanboys who praise their guns because in the end it's your cash. Get what YOU like.

    If you want a Glock, get one. If you want an XD or XDm, get one.

    I have a couple of Glocks, an XD and a couple 1911's. It is your decision, I don't have any pistols I dislike.

    Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder.

    I thought it was" beauty is in the eye of the beerholder..."

    Aesthetics are very important in my gun selections.

    I don't shoot a gun I don't like very well.

    Buy Gatoragn is right, buy what you really like.
