This is a really good point. The future needs to be as diverse as our country is and will become over time. Every family tradition, responsible firearms ownership for many, starts with a single individual.

Karma can be a strange thing....
The gentleman I spoke about in my first quote got his hql and just purchased his first handgun last week, an FNH 509 tactical. Oddly enough his son was telling me about this exactly one day after I won the 300 rds of Fiocchi 9mm offered up as Karma by CanDoEz. This man became a new gun owner during one of the worst supply crunches in modern history and I was just given 300 rounds of 9mm.
Karma can be a strange thing, to me it felt like I won this prize just so I could pass it along to this new gun owner. I was glad to get it, I was just as glad to give it to someone who I knew needed it more than I.

Two months ago I would have recommended a prospective totally new handgun owner to aproach the situation backwards . Get the ammo first , and then select a matching pistol .

There was a window when 9mm and .380 were gone , but I continued picking up .45acp , .40 , .32acp, and 10mm . But at this moment most of what's on local shelves is .357 Sig .

And , if one can primarily only find generic FMJ , then bonus points for .45acp .

Thanks RoadDawg for straightening her out! I'm so glad she decided to choose you to engage!

I wanted to stop by this weekend, but too many balls in the air at once.

Lol!!

Also, you'd have probably tried to sell me something and I just bought 1500 rounds of Sig 9mm!

Only thing he has left to sell is himself and you don't want that

Don’t know why she picked me... but... I tried to remain calm, civil, informative, and not seem to be rude. So... she listened... thanked me for the information and left.

Sorry you guys didn’t get to visit. Next time
