    OH no, one of you guys. Read this article, it may or may not make sense to you in your current state of mind.

    We havent got guns down here, no comment as to how I personally feel about it, though ti would be nice to be able to go hunting when I'm in the country.

    The XD series Anthony mentioned earlier looks to me a good choice, though the ported model sounds even sweeter. In fact, I'd like any of those. XD

    Of all these mentioned, Ive actually fired the 1911 and the .44 magnum, which I think is the Dirty Harry gun, (I may have the model wrong) coz it sure as hell made me want to slip into an ill fitting brown suit :P

    My thoughts are the following. While 45 caliber is optimal, if you don't have much money for target shooting a nine would be better because the ammunition is cheaper, and skill depends on shooting regularly.

    Secondly, do not get a concealable weapon, say with a 3 inch barrel. Get a full frame auto that has a standard barrel length of 4 inches in length. In a beginner's hands this will improve your accuracy noticably.

    WTF do you hunt with that thing...dinousaurs?!

    I've got a Glock 21 and I love it. Easy to shoot, rugged, simple and ugly. Never going to give it up.

    You do tai chi, you don't get an opinion on things relating to fighting/killing/destruction.

    They're normally used for target shooting, many outdoorsy types pack them for bear defense.


    Of course, despite the impressive picture, the SW500 cant really compare to rifle cartridges for power and lethality.
