Chicks and guns

Selecting your first firearm is like selecting a purse

    Not a chick, but my first “real” handgun (not counting the Ruger Mk II in .22LR my pop got me when I was a teenager) was my Taurus PT92 in 9mm. Still own it, mostly use it for IDPA/USPSA. I think I got it mainly due to its resemblance to the military M9 sidearm.

    Impractical as a carry gun, if I had it to do over I’d’ve gotten my Glock 23 (or a Glock 17, in 9mm) first. My first practical carry gun was my Bersa Thunder .380, which is what I tested with for my CHL. Still use it for quick trips around town, sometimes, since it’s easy to strap on and take off with minimal hassle, but for longer outings I prefer to pack something in .40 S&W or .45 acp or at least 9mm.

    Still, I sometimes strap on the PT92 if it’s cold out in winter time and I’ve got enough layers on to sufficiently cover it.

    JJR: Why cover it? I carry a Ruger P94DC in .40, out in the open here in TN. Check out http://www.opencarry.org for more on the general right to openly carry and the reasons for (and against) it.

    She starts out telling you not to allow anyone to pick a gun for you. It’s too personal a choice. Then procedes to pick a gun for you. A Glock. In 9 x 19 mm. OK then. I guess that works.

    Lyle, choosing a gun certainly is a personal preference. Glock just happens to be my personal firearm of choice and I explain why. Thanks, Uncle, for the link.
