After not owning a gun for almost 20 years, I just didn't buy one, but two new pistols in less than two months. The first is a Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield (mostly to carry concealed). However, I really missed the old 1911. So I now also own a Springfield EMP-4 9MM. It’s very accurate and fun to shoot. Now it’s my CCW .
I'm a lucky man that I have a very understanding wife.
To explain, I retired from the Corps in 88 and needless to say, I’ve had a few pistols. Mostly 1911 45's and a few 9mm. Enjoyed shooting and went to the range a lot. I gave up my weapons almost 20 years ago. What got me back into it was politics (which I don’t talk about). I believe in the 2nd Amendment and I do practice and live by it.
I am very glad to owning and carrying again.

Sounds like you are doing pretty good for an old new guy. Don't need too many reasons to carry these days.

Thank you for your service. As for the weapons, buy the one that you feel more comfortable with that you can shoot the best with. As for my self, I carry a 1911 4 1/4'' or a 5'' barrel 1911 in 45 everyday. :yup:
