Handguns (Lessons learned)
Lately I have been in a mode in which I don't feel like my growth in firearm knowledge has not moved quite as fast as it did in the last few years. No, I don't know everything by any means, but there are a few observations I have made over the years and I figured I would share. Please feel free to share a few of your own nuggets.
- 1911's and Revolvers still tend to be the most accurate handguns I own
- For the cost of an HK, I would rather have a Sig Elite
- Ruger does some things very well and goes a little cheap on others
- Firearms are a bit like golf, the more crap you buy does not mean your shooting or game improves (it takes practice)
- About 95% of people at a gun range frankly can't shoot to save their own lives even though that is what they are there to practice for.
- Everyone should own at least one 9mm Glock
- Concealed carry in the small of your back is terrible
- Buy twice the size of safe you think you need
- If you think ammo is expensive now, just wait
- When purchasing a rifle take into account needing the same dollar amount for glass
- Holsters multiply like rabbits
- Own extra magazines for guns you intend to keep (I remember the last high cap ban)
- Everyone thinks what they purchased is the best
