First handgun- I sold a shotgun a friend of the family had given me, but just wasn't that useful to me. I like versatility, so I bought a used Glock 26 at an LGS with one mag- and a brown paper bag. Someone offered me $600 for it, so I sold it and bought a new one with box, 2 mags and all the accouterments for $500.

Got these 2 at the same time. I was looking for a smaller, lighter, go-everywhere gun and decided the only way to really pick the perfect pistol was to try them both out. I'm going to be hard pressed to give either one up now.

My first 9mm

At the time they were becoming harder and harder to find and had been discontinued. After about 2 years I managed to get HK here to get the last 3 from HK Germany.
This is one of the last 3 made

My Ruger SR9c and the wife's Sig P290RS. Both are first pistols for us, and we have a blast going to shoot.

My pride and joy! Got her a few days after I turned 18 and have sendin lead down range ever since. Though she's in great need of a good cleaning. Gives me something to do at the work bench tonight I suppose.

My "fun-at- the-range" gun on Sunday. There is just something about this Beretta. A bit heavy in the hand, compared to all the other modern guns, and clumsy on the mag removal and reloading, but it is a dirt simple design, and utterly reliable as-is, even with hollowpoints. It shoots everything, and groups rather well. For some reason, it seems easier to hit well with one handed shooting. Beretta Model 1934, caliber .380, made in 1967. ..... [IMG][/IMG]

Those Berettas are so nice. Here's a cousin to that 1934... on the bottom a sweet 948, a nickel 84f and a 92fs Vertec Inox. Those open slides carry the family resemblance throughout the line. Berettas, you have to love them.

Here is my first(newbie to pistols)..She wont win any beauty contest though...I picked it up a few weeks and I am in love..

GenIII Glock 23,2x13rd mags,2x15rds mags,night sights,extended mag release,and 50 rounds of JHP(cheap win variety)..I had been eyeing G19s an 17s for about a year..My buddy just picked up a Gen4 G27 an offered me this one for 400$ for everything..I would have been a idiot to turn it down...Im addicted now an plan to keep this one as is,and add either a G17 or G34 as a gun for targets an maybe competitive shooting in the future

First it's pretty tires, then it's pretty guns and thing you know, you're shavin' your beard and wearin' capri pants
