If your not going to use it to protect your own life if someone breaks in then why use it when the SHTF?

I would think that if someone broke in and stole your valuables, raped you numerous times and then killed you would fall under SHTF scenario.

I think your not ready mentally & emotionally to own a firearm yet...........just my opinion.


100% agreed...

even with her said words...

keep baking cookies chick..

Denver

When I've gone to Walmart, I see only hunting guns. But I have only looked at 1 walmart.


check out 5280 armory, they offer carry and conceal classes and they have GREAT prices.
I have purchased my last 4 guns from there. nothing but good things to say about them.

www.5280armory.com...

Can I please make a recommendation.

PK380. Nice, not big. No jams. Hardly any recoil. Comfortable. I bought this for my fiance along with the
P22. She loves both of them and will not buy outside of Walther.

22 if you looking for cheap target practice.
380 for self defense






For the 22- www.waltherpistols.com...

For the .380
www.waltherpistols.com...





If your looking for just small. There is the LCP. Made by Ruger. Small but watch out, in my fiance's experience it has a heck of kick, and not very acurate at all.

www.ruger.com...


All these are good firearms and great companies. Range in cost 250-350

Thanks! I've been browsing their website. Definitely going to take a class from them! After comparing a few... they seem to really focus on educating people and making sure you are 100% ready. Instead of just trying to make a quick $150 in a classroom setting.

Yes and everyone there is super knowledgeable. The owner can talk four hours about pros and cons of gas operated or piston impingement bolt cycling systems. You will get a straight forward answer for what you are looking for from them, no beating around the bush.

Any pawn shop should have plenty of guns,at least they do here.
If you get one ,please go through a safety course,practice at a gun range,and always keep out of reach of children!
When I was a kid,I had some friends of mine find their parents gun and played russian roulette.
Needless to say,one of them lost.

don't let em rag on you... you dint know so you asked... how we learn... tons of guns stores there in Denver... if you get around to visiting Woodies shop tell him Gunny says he still owns him 50 bucks... he'll know what it means...

Tanner will be back and on sept 24th... if you miss that one they will be back on Oct 8th and again on the 15th...

if I remember right one of the local shooting clubs used to host a little mini show once a month over by the old airport... might want to look and see if they still do... that one was all about private sales and trade... not dealers

i would not buy a gun from a dealer now, i would search for a private sale.
i believe it's only a matter of time before they start,confiscating guns that are registered
and i would think it would be easier to get the newly registered guns first. seeing how older registrations.
might not be current with the info that was provided at the time of sale.
you know kinda like the last hired, first fired mentally.

and when you purchase a gun from a individual, you want them to be like minded.
you don't want some one who will tell the gestapo who they sold it to.

if you look around you should be able to find someone who has a gun for sale.
now i don't mean go buy one from some gang banger, drug dealer, or other type
of criminal. there are many law abiding folks who need to sale their guns for one reason
or the other.

i took the liberty of looking for gun laws in CO, and it appears to me that you can own a gun legally with out any paper work.

Gun laws in Colorado



the above table from the wiki

Gun Laws In The United States ( by state)


just some advice, i'm not saying that i'm 100% right, but i would take my chances and not let any one know that i own a gun. there may come a time when you need it.

good luck

I recomend independent sporting stores. They dont seem as square when purchasing guns from manufacturers. I notice a wider variety and they have extremely small pistols a women would want,you could hide them in your palm for instant access. Did you say you got your permit to carry?

Prices are a hair higher because they include shipping to your local dealer.

You only pay sales tax and transfer fees at your local. They have preferred dealers list with active licenses to help decide where it goes. Then give that local shop a ring and let them know its coming. they ship pretty fast.

Yeppers, mail order was teh kitts mitts.
In fact my Dad still has his Sears & Roebuck ( yes S&R brand ) 410 bolt action. ....it has and never has had a serial number.
That was a mail order wep.
Oh, the good old days!!!

More back to on topic, I fully agree with the test drive idea.
I have the ability to pick up any gun and fall in love with it like a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert, but...
Some folks are picky or have smaller hands, at the very least, handle several guns and get the feeling for what feels best for you.
If you are getting a handgun, consider if you will ever carry it concealed (remember situations can change)
Many things to consider length, width, weight Etc.
Ultimately, go with what feels good.
You will generally be better with what you like.
Hope it helps


(Edit)
I forgot, if buying new...
Put at least 200 rounds of good factory jacketed ammo through the gun.
Some will say there is a precisely proper method of clean shoot clean shoot Etc. for your first 50 rounds or so.
There is merit there but just keep in mind, any good reputable gun can jam its first couple of hundred shots.
Just make sure if you depend on it, it fires and functions.

Dunno bout how your system works but if someone broke into my house or had intent to do me or mine harm, I would call that a SHTF situation.
I would do what had to be done and then handle the legal afterward.
SHTF isn't just Krispy Creme running out of my chosen donut!

For me that is code orange!!

1 - Try to find a local gun shop with a range and try different firearms out and see what you like - FIRST!

2 - There are local private sellers who post on state/county-wide sites dedicated to private transaction gun sales(noted on a previous post) of used firearms and generally they are the best deal price-wise. Plus you get to deal directly with the individual selling the firearm and make your decisions based on that.

3 - If you want to buy internet - try this site www.gunbroker.com... They pretty much all insist that the firearm be shipped to your local firearms dealer ($25-50 fee) for your local pick up - but there's a good selection of pretty much any firearm you might want.

BTW - if you do buy from a private seller - insist on a Bill Of Sale - it protects you in case there's any question about the background of the gun.
Forms for a B.O.S. can be easily be downloaded from the web

Private sale is best.
Unregulated.
No bs and what you see is what you get.

Bring a friend who is A1 on the gun you are looking to buy.

Gun shows are good places to forge private sale contacts...
