My non gun owning buddy is looking for a gun to buy, I need help narrowing things down before going shopping and shooting. He is a complete newby, I just converted his way of thinking, and he wants to go shopping this week.
Here is the challenge... It must be compact or full size, double action (DAO is fine too) and have a thumb safety.
What I don't want to hear about is sub compacts, XD's or retro fitted aftermarket thumb safety on Glocks, or renting before he buys blah blah blah. Been there and done that.
I'm just wanting to toss out as many suggestions that fit the criteria for him to look at.
Poly or steel is fine, I'm open to all other suggestions. Whatcha got?
