    Hey Gus, that is 7 days til you can purchase a handgun on your own. You could purchase a rifle and can own a handgun now. Also 7 days til you can get your CCW permit.

    Get it right kid.

    I was lucky, my Dad gave me an old rifle to trade in on my 1st handgun. That combined with the money I had saved up let my put the money down on the $700 Glock 24P I had been drooling over.

    8 years later I still have that gun and I've put a good 5-7000 rounds through it. I lost track after about 1800 rounds. Love that gun. The sights sucked though. I've replaced them with JP Custom DoubleRings and put in an extended slide catch to make it easier to lock the action open. Only other mods were hand polishing the contact points on the connector bar for smoother opporation.

    Ah, the memories! Now if hadn't moved out of MO maybe I could finally get a CCW :rolleyes: Just have to work on setting the Kansas folks straight.

    :confused: I thought most daughters stuck dad with the debt from the plastic, not a plastic gun.

    re1973, I had the whole "sitcom teeneybopper" voice in my head when I read that. I could see the whole thing vividly, it was scary.:uhoh:

    OK, back on track. What else should I pick up with my first gun?
    I've already bought the lock. I'll pick it up with the gun.
    Have snap-caps in the appropriate sizes.
    Have ammo. :)

    What do you wish you'd bought right away with your first handgun?

    Get your self a nice cleaning kit, not that I clean my 22 bore that much, just a patch after shooting but I clean everything else. definatly get some of that great cologne Hoppe #9, great stuff for cleaning gunk. and what ever gun lube you are into. NOT WD40.


    Buy ammo, Shoot it, repeat
