    I own several handguns, two .357 revolvers, a S&W and a Colt; one .22 S&W target semiautomatic and a Sig Sauer P220 .45. The revolvers are intrinsically safe when used properly. Dropping loaded revolvers will not cause an accidential discharge because of the hammer block and rebound slide. Dropping a loaded Sig Sauer will not cause an accidential discharge because of a firing pin lock. The target semiautomatic can accidentially discharge if dropped. I ensure it is never placed into battery until I am on the firing line. Never ever put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Sometimes even seasoned shooters forget this one of the "golden rules."
    Nothing can ever substitute firearms discipline which includes never pointing a firearm unless it is the intended target, proper breath control, sight alignment and trigger squeeze.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    I own a glock 17 and love it, glock has three sizes, Full, mid, compact. Their guns are nice, and easy to take apart I am not an armor but my Firearms Instructor was a Glock armorer, He likes Hammer cock pistols so he carries Sig, but has stated if glock ever made a Hammer cock pistol he would carry that, but untill then he will carry a sig, he also likes having external safeties which the glock does not have, but imo i dont like external safeties because when SHTF i want to be able to draw and fire, not draw release 1 to 2 external safties then fire. so go shooting see how goes feel when you shoot, if you cant hit the broad side of a target with a particular weapon or feel unconfertable with it dont buy it. however i had predetermined that i was going to get a glock. But i did try a few others out, and i felt the full size glock had fit me better then some of the other full size weapons i had tried.

    Most of the time I do my Armorer cleaning and that’s it. They have less moving parts than any other hand gun I can think of. In addition there are more models and sizes to fit anyone's hand.

    All I know is they go "bang" when you need them to...
    I own a Glock 20, however, I would suggest you shoot the Steyr M40 A1. It was designed by an Austrian Armorer that worked for Glock as a weapon designer and armorer. I was so impressed with it, I bought one for myself.

    Having taught numerous people how to shoot a handgun, my best advice is;

    1) The best weapon is the one that feels comfortable to you, what feels the best in your hand and has the best natural point of aim for you. Renting a weapon at a range and shooting it will help you to decide on which weapon feels the best and shoots the best for you, regardless of name-brand. Now I would not recommend a cheap weapon, but one with an excellent reputation and moderate cost.

    2) I would ask what caliber of weapon to buy and why. I would choose for an all around weapon....duty, backup, home defense or as a snake gun if you go out in the woods for hunting, hiking or camping. would be a 40 caliber. I do not like a 9mm or 38. I personally carry a 10mm for duty, hunting and for my home or my back up weapon, I chose a 40 caliber. Also a 357 Sig, type of 357 round, made for semi autos, is a good choice as well.


    I hope this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    I have book here I'm looking at and they are Sig Sauer models 226, 239, 220, 229, sp2340,

    Also i left hand so do guns come left and right handed or not.
    For most handguns, being left handed will not matter except during reloads.

    Sigs are nice guns, expensive though (relatively.)

    If you can, rent weapons at a gun range. This will let you see how well you shoot, etc. I don't know about down there, but in the US: Your security licensing course for the gun will NOT teach you how to shoot, only test your ability to hit a target.

    It is up to you to develop marksmanship on your own before taking the test.
