Need suggestions for my first gun.
« on: December 12, 2008, 11:29:00 AM »

Hey guys, I am considering getting my first gun while I still can, including learning to shoot it and eventually get a conceal carry permit here in Florida.

I am looking at getting a revolver for starters, and eventually want to get the civilian version of the P90 (PS-90)(Stargate makes these guns look cool). 

FTL Gun people, what type of revolver would you recommend a gun Newbie should get?

Here is a photo of the ps-90..  now that's a cool looking gun.

Well, Shaw sold me on a 10/22 rifle for my first gun, and it's in the works right now, but that isn't a handgun. (I can't buy a handgun since I'm under 21.)

EDIT: spelling

get something like a shrouded hammer .38cal "air-weight" type revolver(don't buy a smith unless you get a really good deal...they are overpriced)

Taurus makes some good ones...

you can carry these pretty much all the time...after all, you don't want to be at a gunfight...without a gun...

enjoy!

Send a copy that note to Plaxico Burress.

good choice.  That's what my G'ma keeps in her nightstand.  I don't mean that in a bad way.  Don't break into G'ma's house.

It's cooler on TV and video games than it is in real life. Not really accurate past 20 feet, and the muzzle velocity is too low for my taste. I personally don't go for all that wounding shit. I like my rounds to tumble and kill.

At any rate, the horizontal magazine on the top is a neat trick, if they managed to make it reliable as well.

For revolvers, my first gun was a snub-nosed S&W .357 that I've always been happy with.

If this gun was around when I got my first one, I would have gotten it. The Taurus Judge. It shoots 45 cal and also shoots 410 shotgun shells. Perfect for home protection.

I've been told it's not as powerful as you might think, good for close range I hear.  Gun experts trump whatever I say.
