    Yes. My Kahr P380. Nobody had one in stock, and I didn't know anyone who had one. However, I researched it extensively before buying it. I wasn't disappointed.

    Same here..........never shot before purchase.

    And I can think of at least 2 times when I wish I would have been able to.

    Handled yes shot no I do a lot of research before I purchase one. If I like how it feels I go ahead and buy it

    The exact gun that I purchased no, but I have shot two pistols that were friends that I eventually purchased.

    In a word, yes... Every firearm I have ever purchased was brand spanking new to me and the first rounds thought it by me were at the range after the purchase... That's what rentals are for I guess, right...

    Yes, alot, thats why I've had so many guns and have sold so many guns. I now know that I pretty much only like Sigs and revolvers. But I'm sure I'll make the mistake er learning lesson again in the future.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    I've never testfired anything before purchase. I usually do a TON of research and reviews and look for the negatives of something before I plan on buying. Especially a firearm. I've never had an issue with anything. I mean the first guns I purchased were German k98's. Unfortunately they were used to kill the wrong people but you get the idea.
