so a friend of mine has a shotgun and its one of his hobbies besides paintball. I dont know anything about this subject but i may be interested in a pistol for starters and to see if i like it or not. Is there a best or is it like paintball where its all personal preference? I'm 6'1'' 200 lbs and want a nice Blow back pistol but i want a good gun (or the best one out there). Can you guys please help guide me on this? What is the price range like? and what should i look for? and stay away from? Certain makes? models? and whats the maintenance like? all the help is greatly appreciated.
I'm no expert at all, but I really enjoyed firing pistols chambered in 9mm and .45. My all time favourite pistol to shoot thus far has been the 1911.
My advice would be to go to your local range (with your buddy would be even better) and rent some of the different handguns they offer. This can give you an idea of the calibre you are interested in as well as the general feel that you seek.
Having never owned any gun I can not comment any further than this.
If you're from New Jersey its a PITA to get a pistol permit. So much red tape.
One thing I will also mention: If you are suuuuper new to guns Glock may not be your best choice--they are not the most beginner-friendly guns as they have no external safeties. Basically the only thing that keeps you from shooting yourself in the foot is not pulling the trigger.
ok cool! thanks for the quick replies. other are welcome to add more to this thread.
btw, what hard about NJ and getting a permit?
I thought it was just a back round check and they call a few references you listed within the paper work?? am i wrong? besides going to my local police station for the paper work?
I own a Glock 19 in 9mm just because I liked the way it felt in my hand.
my buddy showed me an urban camo pistol but he forgot who made it? is that common or is it a custom job? btw, what pistols can you hook a flashlight up to? just for the sake of my home security in the night. A lot of crap is still going on with people robbing other and what not...
Most pistols you can add flashlights, lasers and scopes/red dots.
are you serious?! that makes no sense to me. i would have thought that both would be the same process to obtain the permit. Just out of causticity, what do the police officer shoot?
As for a flashlight, any pistol that has a rail on it will accept a flashlight.
A rail looks like the one in this picture (the "teeth" under the barrel, to the right of his fingers):
and there are rails that look like this too (same place as in the picture above, just looks different):
Also, if possible, stay away from pistol lasers. Why? They can teach you to become reliant on them. What happens if you need to use it in a defensive situation, and for whatever reason the laser doesn't turn on? That split second it takes you to say "oh ****, my laser isn't working, I need to use my sights" can be a deciding factor on the outcome when someone is rushing towards you, closing a five foot gap in two steps...
