How to Purchase Your First Handgun

Purchasing your first handgun is exciting! The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a handgun is make sure it fits you.  That’s a simple concept at first glance, but there are few things to examine when shopping for a handgun.

The first decision you will be forced to make is that of a budget.  No one likes to talk about money but targeting a specific price-point will provide the opportunity to condense the options available to you. This is the fundamental step to personalized firearms ownership.

After establishing your budget, it’s important to determine the purpose of your future handgun.  Will your gun be strictly for home protection? Are you going to engage in competition shooting?  Do you plan on applying for a Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) license after purchasing your first pistol?  Focusing on how you plan on using your handgun will help eliminate choices that don’t fit.
