allow me to introduce my self, im walther. i dont have any guns yet but i will start off with buying a 9mm baretta. when i held it at the gun store it felt good. I dont have any experience with guns so im starting off small then working my way up to the bigger ones. im a carpenter in the union, and well i like guns. I respect them and want to get my family into shooting. I want my wife and kids to come with me to go shooting.

welcome wally

Good hobby for kids and family. get the kids to take a safe gun class.
If the wife enjoys it, it is also easier to purchase more guns...lol

dont do it wallstreet

I say drop the beretta before you swear off guns altogether!!! The beretta for your first pistol is like wanting to fuck for the first time at the young niave age of 12 and choosing the Man/girl on the corner to try it out....no bueno Wally, no bueno. please choose something else...A SIG or the Ruger SR9, or a Glock, or a 1911. Something!!
