Hey guys, my name is Eric. I just submitted my CCW application last week. Don't currently own a gun, still deciding what I want to get. Oh, and I live in Ogden. I think that's all.
I just did a google search for a Utah CC forum, I was curious on a few Utah laws. I'd probably want to carry IWB but who knows, I've never even tried a holster on. My first and only trip to the range (impact) I shot the Springfield XD 9mm, it did like it but didn't really have anything to compare it to. I'm drifting towards Glock solely on their name and reputation. As far as just reasearch without actually shooting anything, I think I like the Glock 23...GeneticsDave said::welcome:
How did you find us? How/where do you plan to carry? What firearms have you shot before and which did you like/dislike? We can give you opinions on what to get/use, but it helps if you narrow the range down a bit to just a couple guns.
I will be the first to pipe in and suggest a Springfield XD
Read this thread first before you buy one. Make sure you test fire any weapon before buying it. The XD and Glock have very different grip angles and aim differently - so your natural point of aim will be off with one of them. XD also has a passive grip safety to help prevent those negligent discharges you hear about with Glocks (granted you shouldn't need it, but anywho). Plus, the XD is so much better lookingMorty said:I'm drifting towards Glock solely on their name and reputation.
Yes, and the problem is you will probably like them all and still want another. :wink:PW said:Welcome. Buy whatever you want as far as your first gun...cause it won't be long before you buy another....and another....and another....and another....a pretty soon you will know what you like.
You ain't kidding, those XDs are so [edited by moderator - don't try to bypass word filters] sexxy! hehe!GeneticsDave said:If you can't tell, I'm biased. I hope you are happy with whatever you choose, but if you need more reasons to buy an XD over a Glock (Block), just let me know :lol2:
