Never owned a hand gun before and my good friend from work who's a gun fanatic was getting rid of his .40 cal MOD 4006 so gladly took it off his hands. Went to the range and I think its a great first gun. I have seen a lot of mixed reviews regarding this gun but I already have about 200 rounds through it and just love it. here are some pics I payed 400 for it but that included 2 cases of blazer bullets, a carrying case, 2 clips, and a berreta gun lock. Think i got a good deal? from what i see the gun averages about 350 used so I think i got a decent deal.
