Went down to the local shop today to check out a few handguns, not really planning on buying... I ended up leaving with the 3.8 Compact and firing 200 through it today. Boy is it fun and accurate! Definitely fit in my hand better than the G19 I tried, which is what I thought I might buy. I'm sure I'll get one of those eventually too . Couldn't be happier with my purchase, especially with the added bonus of 3 mags and an extra mag pouch! Just wanted to say thanks for all of the info on these forums making my choice much easier! You all are a fantastic wealth of knowledge. Also if any of you have some tips/tricks, feel free to drop them here! On a side note, for those of you who saw my .22 thread, I ended up with the Marlin 795, and that is also absolutely awesome! Makes my amateur shooting look way better than it is haha.
