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 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.
