Just got my "Welcome to Glock Talk" email this morning. I live in the Maxwell Park neighborhood of Oakland, the third most dangerous city in the USA. Firearm ownership is, IMO, required to sleep soundly.
I must confess that I only own one handgun and it's a, it's a ,,, it's a
wheelgun. But it's a good one, a Colt Python with a 4" barrel, nickel plated and Hogue grips. I bought it new for $300 when my brother was closing down his coin/gun shop in Redding back in 1982. It has fired only 28 rounds. But that is about to change.
Aside from learning to shoot the Python I also intend to rent a variety of semi-auto pistols and buy a couple, one for me and one for my wife. A friend of mine, who is a retired police captain, has recommended a .40 caliber for me but I'm thinking a 9mm might be better for my wife. We'll see.
