Really wanting a pistol. Hoping to carry it on me in the near future.

Looking at a 1911 and what I believe is a c9. Anything you guys recommend? (I am not a gun guy, so I don't really care about specs... Just want one for protection.)

Main reason I ask is because of the BS posts that have been in the general thread all day.

Are you looking for a conceal carry just home defense? I carry a Glock 22 .40 in my car and take it into the house whenever i get home... its too big for a conceal carry though. I plan on getting a kahr arms p380 soon. Very nice piece. Personally im not a fan of 1911 style pistols. If you are i wouldnt get anything except a kimber. If you only want home defense, get a glock or springfield xd. Both are extremely reliable, well rounded, and affordable.

If its your first handgun I would suggest a glock. If you are trying to get one for concealed carry then I would say a glock 19 (9mm). If you just want one for at home then a glock 22 (.40 caliber) would be great as well.
I admit that 1911's are super cool looking guns, however if you are wanting to e carrying almost all the time (which i suggest if you get a permit) then a 1911 will be too bulky and annoying. Remember that handguns arnt a fashion show.

I was in the market for a pistol too but around here right now it seems like everybody is going crazy and buying everything up after the shootings and talks of gun restrictions. I went into two stores the other day looking for a box of .22 ammo and neither one had any which i never expected. Their gun selection was also very slim compared to what it normally is. Supposedly theres a nationwide shortage. Hopefully things will get back to normal when this shit blows over.

I competitivly shoot pistols, but for a concealed weapon i would suggest a glock 17 or 19.

Glocks are arguably the most reliable gun. you can drop it in mud and it will still shoot, freeze it, shoot it, cook it, it will still work.

if you really want something cool, see if you can get your hands on an apache pistol

1911s are sick
and R8s are pretty kewl too(now theyre considered an assault revolver/weapon in ny lol) so its fucking illegal herejsut because it holds 8 rounds

I agree with sharpy, a glock is the way to go for a good reliable first pistol

Thats good then, because seriously, if someone wants to kill another person or group of people it will happen. plain and simple. thats just how it is.

exactly. But the funny thing is that with the black market here in the US it isnt hard at all to get any type of gun you want if your going to be killing someone. I dont know why people think that the criminals who are killing people are going to take the time to meet the standard of the law when purchasing their weapon... all they are doing is limiting the good citizens who just want to protect themselves and those around them.

Mini gun that sort ya out

I shot my uncles Glock 22 last night. Man that thing is so fun. I think I am officially a believe of the .40 caliber. Its perfect. It has enough bang to keep things interesting and to stop anyone robbing your house. But its also tame enough to be accurate and reasonable. I suggest any glocks that are .40's!

maybe go down to the local firing range and try out a few, it is cheap and well worth the exposure. Everything from kickback to loading style will be things that are best considered with options in hand. There will be a ton of insight at a firing range about defense weapons & state gun regulations.

It's kinda generic, but a common practice is to do 3 months of shooting at a gun range to familiarize yourself with all the aspects of the weapons up for consideration. Plus & most importantly, you'll get a solid idea of which gun you're most accurate with...

I use a 44 special snubnose

ed: there, their, they're...

Exactly... its right in between. Has more than enough "stopping power" if need be, and its cheaper to shoot than a .45. I keep mine loaded with federal hydra shok hollow points, so stopping someone shouldnt be a problem smile The cool thing also about it is you can get a conversion kit and it will basically turn the glock 22 into a glock 17(9mm). So if you want to go shoot for fun at the range and just waste ammo, it is way cheaper.
