I just posted my introduction. I'm not sure if this was the place to post this or not. I hope so. I did mention in my intro that I know very little about guns. I've never even handled a gun before. I come from a family that is very anti-gun. We never had anything to do with them. None of my friends are interested in guns either. I thought this board would be a great place to learn more about firearms. I bought a couple of books at a used bookstore that were about this mercenary called Jim Rainey. These books were by Soldier of Fortune. The character's favorite gun was a Star .45 automatic. I've never heard of this gun at all. Does anybody have an opinion on it? I would love to learn more about it. Also sometimes he used the gun with a silencer. Can this gun use a silencer or not? I know sometimes books and movies get everything wrong. Is this gun easily concealed or not? Thanks. I appreciate your insights.
