The Kel tec is on the inexpensive side. It's small and light. One of the things I found when I was looking around is that some of the smaller pistols were really too small for my hands. I could only get two fingers around it which felt kinda unstable to me. I went with a Glock 19 which fits just perfectly. It's a 9mm which is very close to the kel tec. Lots of guys will say you need a bigger calibre--which I understand. In any case, it's a good idea to be able to handle and shoot with your favorites before you buy. Just my opinion. Research is good.

you should really get "hands on" with a few guns before you make your choice. There are some classes you can take that actually let you try various handguns to get the feel of them. or even go to a shop and just get the feel of holding it, you want it to feel like an extension of your hand. I would probably go with a 9mm instead of a 380 since there isnt much of a difference. but a 380 is just as good, also 9mm ammo is more common. welcome aboard to the site by the way

was made with Dirty Olive Vodka. Man I could drink those all night long. Boody Mary's were great with this stuff too. You gotta get your vitamins and your lycopene and stuff, right? Plus they are great for hangovers. The best vodka that I have tried though is Ciroc. Way smooth! I don't mix that with anything. Just chill and swill. Woooo!!!

Welcome

It's up to you what you get. I would suggest you go out with some friends and shoot theirs and see wich ones you like. Then base what you want off of that.
