Congratulations! A fine purchase.

Depending on if you live in town or out in a rural area, you'll definitely want to get a bit of practice in with your new shotgun, either on your land or at a local range. If you're unfamiliar with firearms (i.e. never shot one) the recoil from a 12ga can be quite a surprise for a beginner, depending on ammo. Mainly depending on shot size. Larger shot will give more kick. Buckshot is a whole different game than 6 or birdshot (8)

LEARN HOW TO HANDLE IT SAFELY! "With great power comes great responsibility." Knowledge is power. Also, you mentioned a family, be sure and teach them how to handle it safely and responsibly for times you may not be home.

Like domo said, as far as pistols go, you really can't go wrong with a Glock. Had a Glock 23 (.40 S&W) for about 10 years now, never had a problem with it after countless rounds. And you will want to spend some range time learning to shoot effectively.

Laws do differ between long guns (rifle/shotgun) vs. handgun. Mostly depending on your local state laws. Do your research on local gun laws, gun laws for the most part only affect law-abiding gun owners. And you can get into some serious doo-doo if all your i's aren't dotted and t's crossed.

If you're interested in getting a Concealed Handgun License, do your research first regarding state laws. There are some preclusions to obtaining one (convicted felon, misdemeanor domestic abuse, more than 2 DUI/Public Intox charges within the past 3 years from application for example in my jurisdiction.) I'd hate for you to drop the cash on the application and find out you can't get one. In my state (Oklahoma) if you have a CHL, the waiting period for handgun purchase can be bypassed.

Like many others have said, I'm generally not a fan of online purchases. Mush like musical instruments, I'd rather see it, hold it, feel it, and inspect it in person before committing to a a purchase.

Also consider that most home defense scenarios take place in low light conditions. Whether you'd rather hold a flash light or mount a tactical one, is your call. Before tickling the trigger, MAKE SURE OF YOUR TARGET, AND WHAT'S BEHIND IT! Don't just pop-off at any shadow that moves, it could be a family member or other non-threat. Buckshot can also have the problem of over-penetration.

And like you said, once you get one.... you want more. Welcome to to the gun-nut club!

because i have no idea about ammo.
i asked the dude what would be good and told him i didnt want a slug.

he gave me that and started explaining it..the number on the right (6) is the ball size. he said the smaller the number is the smaller the beads are but there are more of them. the higher the number the larger the bead but less of them.
he said this was in the middle....

sounded good to me....

im new at this

6 shot is like for ducks or smaller. Smaller balls less powder etc. I dove hunt with 7 shot. Cops and military mainly stick with 00 buck that has 9 balls where your 6 shot has 281 balls. I do not know how big a person you are, but there is a considerable difference in kick since the 00 has a lot more power.

Might I suggest the Canik 55 TP9 semiautomatic pistol? Its reliable and very inexpensive. Made by a Turkish military and police contractor. Imported by Century Arms International. Would be a good starter pistol in 9mm parabellum.

SRM 1216 Tactical shotgun. I like this one. 16-round 12 gauge semiautomatic ...quick fire devastation...and easy to get...not super expensive either!


Dude that is a 3000 dollar shotgun.

Ahh yes..The KSG and the Sub2000 are my exceptions to the rule when it comes to Kel Tec.

I hate that company and most of their products. But those two are great weapons and I would own them proudly.

I agree with you on that! Not too crazy abou the company at all...but I once the ad for that when it first came out and thought to myself "Hmm. I wonder how much that lists for?"

If it was reasonable and I had the $$ and inclination...I mightve considered it. Maybe....

I had the fortune of putting a few thousand rounds through both. I've just never been able to purchase them.

I love those two weapons. The other Kel-Tec I'd like to try would be the PMR 30.
