I'm considering getting something for the house. Not for sure if I'll worry about ccw just yet. I just want it for home, and to go shoot up tin cans. I'm sure you can't beat a short shotgun, but for hand guns what would be more reliable/trouble free/easy maintenance? Clip or revolver? You guys know I don't know crap. I've shot a few shot guns, 22 rifles and 22 revolvers out at our farm, but thats about it.

well slim this is what i have found to be true with hand guns. revolvers are a straight forward hand gun with very limited things that can go wrong with them. most are either 5 or 6 shots and work either single, double, or both action. single you have to pull the hammer back each time to make the gun funtion. double you have the same trigger pull every shot like a glock. and one that has both action is like a sig just to name one gun. i like hand guns that are semi-auto that have a mag over a revolver just for reloading perposes. if you haven't tried to reload a revolver under a time crunch then try it and you will see how hard and how long it takes to do so. with that being said they are very good guns and easy to clean, carry, and funtion with out may problems. a semi auto has more moving parts so it requires a little more cleaning and up keep. either one is a great gun if you practise with it and learn how it works and keep it clean and dry. i like 1911's and sigs, and glocks have come a long ways over the years and are very easy to clean and fire. the only draw back i have with a glock is it dosen't have a manual safty on the out side of the gun other than a8 pound trigger pull. so if you have kids you need a small safe that is easy to get the gun in and out of ,but keeps it out of the kids hands.

semi-autos are reliable and not hard to clean and keep working. i really love to sit down after shooting my s.a. xd9 at the range and break it down and clean it. ammo would be a little cheaper with a 9mm semi then a 38 revolver if you are wanting to shoot cans. i have only shot a few revolvers and to tell you the truth i liked them, but i like the idea of having 16 rounds in a gun vs 5 or six in a revolver. i have shot a 44mag, 357, and a 38 revolvers which the 357 and the 44 can be intimidating to some females. the revolver would be less maintenance and maybe easier to clean up, but semi autos are really easy to breakdown and clean after you do it once or twice. i'm sure glen and drur would back be up when i say that taking care of most new semi autos like the glock or springfeild armory are very easy to clean and take care of.

here's a good link to check out.
Handguns for Home Defense

i have a xd9 and don't have any trouble with it. easy to clean and maintain and shoot. also it's safe being that it has the grip and trigger safty.

I have a buddy in the Army who is quite the firearms enthusiast. He has a Taurus PT1911 and absolutely loves it. An equivalent Kimber (same type of options) will run you around $400 more AND it has a lifetime warranty.

I haven't heard anything negative about the PT1911 and they have been producing them for a few years now.

well i have to go to a family event so i will not be rideing so u guys be safe. ben i don't know anything about taures 1911's. i shoot a springfield1911 with a 4 inch and it is in 45cal and i love it. i have owned about 30 different hand guns and the glocks, sigs, and 1911's i have found to be the best that fit my hand and my price. i have carried a 9mm, 40cal, and 45cal. i really like the sig 357 that my buddies dad has. the ammo is very high and very hard to find, but it is bad ass. we shot a water melon with my 45 and with his 357. i made it blow apart and just a little bit was left. we shot it with the 45 and it was gone. i meen there was nothing left but a wet spot were the melon was before he pulled the trigger. it was bad ass. it looked as if a bomb went off and no one made it out.

Gun Q...

What kind of range/accuracy can you expect from different hand guns?


I guess I should restate that.
Are there certain models that have a reputation for better accuracy than others? I understand that a longer barrel will be more so than a short one.

Well I like to be able to shoot 50 feet and be able to hit a pie pan. That's about the normal with of the chest area that has all the major organs in it. But with that being said most gun fights happen at 12 feet and you won't even use your sites. This is why it is very important that you get a gun that fits your hand great and you know how to function It blind folded. Any gun in a skilled shooters hands is a very deadly weapon.
