i will say this its better to try out a gun before you buy it. since not every one hands the same size. and what feels great to one person might not feel great another. by trying out the guns you get feel on what you like. also comes down to what Crimson Death said too. since that will have to be taken into. since each state has there own rules. to me i was glad to try out different guns so i can get feel what works best for me.
