PNWguy Posted July 7, 2018 Share Posted July 7, 2018 I have had half a dozen potential new gun owners ask me for advice in picking out their first handgun for self defense the last year or so. All of them were under 30 with two being women and the rest guys. All of them wanted a safety and a semi-auto. One bought a Taurus G2c (that was a couple weeks ago after they handled mine), a couple bought Ruger Security 9s, one bought a S&W M&P40c, another a Ruger LC9s, and not sure of the last guy. The point is that we can argue back and forth over the need for safeties but when talking with a new shooter who insists on having one, don't denigrate their concerns and please don't start chest-thumping saying only newbs want safeties. And please, please don't be like the resident Glocktard at my work who, when the new shooter brought in his new G2c to show off, said "Nice paperweight, should have bought a Glock"... The kid is 22yrs old, a former Obama supporter, gets paid on the side to coach video gamers (who knew??), and has been lured to the conservative side by me and other co-workers patiently explaining to him the errors of being a leftist. 1 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
