    Just got first gun!

    I have been watching this forum for a while researching a lot....I have taken a couple classes so far and went out and bought my first gun. I was wanted to get a walther p99as compact, but no dealers around here stock it, and won't order it unless you buy it, so I won't get a chance to see one in real life for a while. So after looking at several guns at the store, I picked up a taurus millenium pro (pt111). I was also looking at some glocks and a kahr. I was suprised at how small all the guns were, in the class I used a glock 17 and these seem tiny compared to it. I know I will end up with a safe full of guns before too long, hard to make any desicion on just one! Not sure how I'm going to be carrying yet (need to go to the shooting range and put some rounds thru it first). I would like to get a kahr but they are a bit spendy for that little gun you get. I was quoted at $629 for the PM9. The PT111 was $329, and quoted $599 for the walther p99as compact. anyway, can't wait to get to the range!!! ...and also order up a holster or two...

    Congrats on the new gun and welcome to the forum. Lots of good info here.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.

    Welcome from Montana.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
