Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled Top 5 Tips for First-Time Gun Buyers and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/top-5-tips-for-first-time-gun-buyers/.
Thanks! I have some more pieces in the works along these same lines (gun handling, etc.) for all the new buyers out there. Please feel free to share with anyone you all know that might be getting into buying their first gun. And keep an eye out for those other pieces as well!Good article and good timing with all the new gun buyers out there, thanks Mike
Good work,America needs more informed and armed citizens.I’ve been asked recently, several times, by casual friends who know I’m a “gun guy” about defensive guns.
My response is: let’s go to the range, and go from there...
Had precisely 2 takers on the offer.
Of those two?
One bought a 870 and a Ruger Security 9...and has yet, afaik, shot them...despite multiple offers on YT's end to hit the range.
Has asked for more range time—please bring more black rifles, explain why I like my AUG over an AR, why I like revolvers for carry, semi-auto vs pump for a HD shotgun...we've had 4 sessions at the range so far, she's bought a VP9sk, a Benelli Nova Tactical (but wants a M2 or M4), and is trying to decide if she wants a 5.56 or .300 for her first AR...she's one of us.
I do what I can.Good work,America needs more informed and armed citizens.
One thing I can say to you is everyone had zero experience when they shot there first time! But we all learn to make the right moves or we give up but most make it!I do what I can.
I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but I strongly believe that putting firearms in the hands of people with zero experience with them is akin to giving a toddler a running chainsaw.
