While I do not enjoy the concept of my recent birthday (getting older, sigh ) I do enjoy the concept of birthday gifts.
My wife and others gave me money because they know that I had my eye on a new handgun.
I am leaning towards a Beretta M9 Semi-Automatic. If it is good enough for the U.S. Military, it is good enough for me. Besides, it will be fun to take my Naval Academy daughter out to the range and help her get her marksmanship skills up to snuf. She will be in the active Navy and on a ship going ingo harms way in about a year and a half and this is good Father Daugher bonding.
But many have recommended a Glock, but I don’t like the movable barrel during reload (What’s with a moving barrel?!?). Some recommend the Desert Eagle, but that, in my opinion, is just a show off gun., for people who are having problems with their self-esteam, if you know what I mean.
And I ideas or suggestions?
Sigs are on sale, now and are used by most of the police in this area, but I prefer mil-spec. There is one used M9 (about 3 years old) going for $450, and Cabella is having a sale on new M9s for $529 (gotta love Black Friday).
