    My first was a Glock 19, I picked it because it was the most comfortable & accurate of the pistols I tested & shot

    My first gun is an American Beauty 22 by Henry repeating arms

    Bought my first gun 3 years ago. It was a Sig Sauer P238, that I still carry every day. I chose it because the smaller frame fit my grip very well, I could easily rack the slide without any extra work being done to the gun, and I’m just partial to 1911’s. It’s still a joy to shoot….

    My first gun – that I actually owned – and still have is a Walther P38 9mm. I got it because it shot well for me, and because it had history. The gun has markings to show that it was carried by a soldier and then he and the gun were captured by the Russians. I researched its date of manufacture, and given the ending date of the war – that sad soldier did not have it long before he and the gun were in Russian hands.
