Got a real gun finally
@animeirl Awesome! What made you choose a Glock?
@jotaku it seems to have a good reputation for reliability (which is important) and of the handguns I've gotten a chance to shoot I liked it the best. Plus the popularity of the Glock 19 means lots of aftermarket support. I also thought about the M&P 2.0 Compact but no one I know has one so I ended up going with what I already know I'm okay with shooting.
@animeirl Good reasons! I honestly don't know where to start but I've been thinking about getting my first handgun a lot recently.
@jotaku Glock 19, M&P9 2.0 Compact and CZ P10C seem to be the "jack of all trades" pistols I see brought up most often. There's a decent chance I will get something smaller if I start concealed carrying on a daily basis, but smaller guns are considerably less comfortable to shoot/harder to control. so I wanted something a little easier to learn with while still somewhat practical if I do feel the need to concealed carry. Bigger or all metal handguns are easier to control from my limited experience but they're also less practical for carrying and I want that to be an option.
@jotaku don't really know anything about revolvers. One of the people I shoot with has a snubnosed revolver for concealed carry which was very concealable but painful to fire. Admittedly I'm sure it's easier to control with practice.
@animeirl yeah, I get that they aren't practical but there's something about the mechanics of them that just fascinates me.
@animeirl buy a good cover to protect it and a good cloth to clean it 👍 🔫 🇺🇸
@camedei456 liberals tend to be more likely to be antigun than people further to the left in my experience. A lot of people would still like to believe we live in a society where you'll never be in a situation where you need to defend your own life but I don't think that's very realistic.
@camedei456 some of them definitely do but I think a fair number of them are just assholes living in gated communities who cannot/will not comprehend the circumstances of anyone who doesn't live in a gated community with a private security force.
We love to post!
