What Pistol Should I Buy?

I often get the question "What Pistol Should I Buy?" from my friends.

When selecting a new firearm there are many different things to consider from…

  • What is it for?
  • What caliber it will use?
  • What features are required and…
  • What features can it not have?

Pistols come in many different sizes and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.  Small guns are easier to conceal but are harder to shoot. Big guns hold more ammo but are difficult to carry.
