    I want a new gun but what to get? Part of me wants a rifle like an AR or even a bolt in like 308 but it can wait I kinda want a hand gun in 9mm such as a 19 which I love. Any suggestions outside of Glock. 1911 ect. If you own a Glock and like something else too that says something about it I think

  3. NOTHING beats a Glock, BUT, not sure if you're a revolver fan, but I've got a .357 S&W that shoots like a freaking dream man.... its a snub nose, check em out, go shoot a few

    I own two Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm, one compact the other full size. I'll leave the "which brand is better" debate to others. All I can say is, so far, neither has missed a beat. They've gone bang every time I've pulled, no, squeezed, the trigger.

    I'm always impressed when I rent a CZ or Beretta at the range. If you want to stay under $400 range and like the Beretta 92FS style, try a Taurus PT92/PT99 or a Turkish Beretta clone like the Centurion 92C. Taurus can be found for under $400 and the 92C for under $300. Centerfiresystems.com for PT92 & CDNNinvestments.com for 92C

    If you don't have a 1911 and like to shoot. Get one. Rifles, so many to choose from, first it depends on budget. High end of the specturm and price; Try some AAC, Knight's Arament, LWRC, POF for some interesting choices in AR platforms in the high end. PWS, Colt, Armalite, Rock River Arms, in the mid-to-low range. However, I do not advise buying a cheap AR because as with everything you get what you pay for.

    Ya I today went to a new gun shop in town that just opened last Tuesday and checked out what they had. Honestly I don't know much when it comes to an ar style rifle. Basically if you can't hunt with it I simply don't have too much experience with it. I looked at a few different brands like knights armament that I wouldn't go for simply for the $ even though I would love to own one but mainly lower range. Any suggestions for a first time buyer? What I saw that was affordable I would dump money into upgrades later but that's always fun I would however like a solid yet affordable platform for a first time buyer that I won't feel the need to buy a different one later

    Close, own a Colt 1911 in .38 Super. 8 in the mag instead of 7. Less recoil than a .45acp. 38 Super's a little expensive to shoot if you don't load your own, but it's a real hot rod.

    I agree with the 1911. I have a Kimber 1911 Custom II and it is beautiful and everyone who shot her wants one, infact my father in law bought a Kimber after firing mine.

    For a rifle I love my Robinson Arms XCR. For a AR I would go with a piston style type AR as I am bias that it works better. You can always build an AR from scratch and hear that is fun sometimes, my friend mix matched a bunch of parts and he loves it. Other wise I was looking in to a basic colt or Del Ton AR and fixing it up later.

    Good luck!!!
     
  14. If you don't have a GOOD .22 pistol, treat yourself to one. Mine get shot more than any other guns I own.

    I have a Walther P22 that I like a lot. I may eventually get a Glock or 1911 .22 conversion kit as well.

    What's the price range on those guns? I don't want to go much over 6-7 hundred and under that is always good
