Yes it is.... and the more people that I talk to who are buying their first gun, the more I realize that this is indeed the one piece of information that they just do not have.
Agreed and i think she does a good job of broaching the topic.
Great point. I'm taking a newbie out this weekend. Her husband has inquired as to the "perfect" handgun for her first one. If at all possible, I try to find a variety for them to shoot so they can really get a feel for them. If you live in a larger town or have access to a place that rents, even better.
if you take new folks shooting on a regular basis might want to invest in something like this http://www.taurususa.com/product-details.cfm?id=626&category=Revolver&toggle=&breadcrumbseries= as well as a .22 conversion for your semi-auto so they can learn the fundamentals w/o being scared of the recoil - i've found that doing this also helps them pick what kind of firearm they are most comfortable with. But then again that is just personal opinion 8D - oh and just finished another blog so i'm heading off to yours now so expect to see an extra page view or two lol
Totally agreed that a .22 is a great way to start. I will even start them off with a 10/22 rifle to up the fun factor before moving to handguns. I like the idea of using a .22 conversion in a standard semi auto so they can practice with a gun ghey might carry in a normal situation. Then again, I've been looking at some Ruger 22/45s and I always like to add new guns to the collection whenever possible.
lol i hearya - i've been eyeballing the 22/45 w/ integral silencer for a few years - main reason i haven't bought any other semi-auto .22 yet here are the ones i've been thinking about http://paladinarmory.com/22Pistols.htm andhttp://www.srtarms.com/mkii.htmhttp://www.srtarms.com/buck.htmhttp://www.srtarms.com/1022.htmhttp://www.blackweaponsarmory.com/gemtech-oasis-suppressor-integrated-22-pistol.htmlout of all of those however the spartan IV is my favorate (i've actually had the pleasure of shooting most of those - how i got hooked lol)
this is the more likely direction i'll go however http://www.tacticalinc.com/tac65-22lr-suppressor-p-38.html
That is some pretty awesome stuff. My friends and I are just getting into suppressors and SBRs. Well, my friends are. I have yet to pull the trigger on one because the whole process is so god-awful expensive. At this stage, I'd want to get a can that can be used on multiple firearms instead of integrated. Though I will say one of the sweetest guns I ever shot was a .308 with an integrated suppressor.
I hearya, i'm wondering if i could get my hi-point (yep i know their reputation) threaded so that it could use the same can as my wifes m9 - likewise i've been eyeballing that new remington boltgun since it uses the same thread pattern as the ar-10. While the prices could be worse on can's it helps to not have to buy one for EVERY gun you own lol - just one more advantage to minimizing the number of calibers i own. oh btw almost done catching up w/ your blog - feel free to let me know what you think of the comments here or via e-mail 8D
