buying a handgun. just for protection and some target practice. Any suggestions?
Good questions. If you want a small gun for concealed carry, buy either a Smith & Wesson Airweight revolver with the laser grips (especially if you are new to guns) or a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380 (which is just now being released). For concealed carry and personal protection at home, buy the smallest .45 that you can afford. If you just want home protection and a gun range pistol, buy the best .45 you can afford. Let us know which of these three scenarios you're looking at and we can give you a lot of suggestions. Everyone has different wants and needs. My goal with guns is to be able to kill as many people as possible who attack me, not look cool. So my preferences may be different than yours. We need to know what your goal is.How often will you be shooting it? Will it be a concealed carry handgun? What kind of price range are you working with? How nig are your hands?
