Just picked up a Taurus Judge with a 3" chamber. 5 round cylinder, fires either 410 shotshells or .45 LC. For some reason they don't have the 3" version listed on their website, but it's got the stainless steel frame. Kind of looks like this one.

Some home made Napalm in my shed, a neighbour who may be HIV positive and a Microwave I could smash the door off to make an EMP.

Biological warfare is more interesting IMO.

I just entered a contest where the prize is a SIG Sauer MK-25, a carbon copy of the SIG P226 variant used by the US Navy SEALs right down to the mil-spec ID tag.

>fingers crossed<

Bought me a S&W 22A yesterday for only $249. :) Sadly it'd be a while before I can shoot it. This is also my first gun :).

You chose VERY well - that's a sweet .22 pistol, ideal for a first handgun.

Prediction: within a year you'll be looking for a 9mm, .40 or .45 ;)

Other thoughts: the 22A is pretty modular, so you can easily swap barrels and there are quite a few accessories available. One common barrel swap is what's called a bull barrel - the barrel walls are thicker, which makes it more accurate for competitive target use.

One tip: do NOT dry-fire a rimfire gun without a 'snap-cap' in the chamber as it could break or damage the firing pin. These are dummy rounds in the shape of a 22 cartridge that give the firing pin a soft landing pad to hit instead of the steel of the firing chamber.

This. Wouldn't consider this a weapon though. Sure you can stab someone, but it might break if i tried to slash someone :D its good as decoration.

As for guns..dont like them. Unhonourable!

Under US Federal law you have to be 21 to buy a handgun, but most states allow posession at 18. Check locally.

Guns are a complex subject. The basics are what do you want to use it for, trigger type, size, and cartridge.

For pure target get a full sized 22 Long Rifle (cheap ammo) automatic or revolver from a major maker like those listed below.

Trigger:

3 basic types; single action (SA), double action (DA) and DA/SA - a mix of both.

Single action: the gun is cocked and you touch the trigger to fire. This always ready setup can, and has, caused a problem called "Glock Leg" - you shoot yourself in the foot drawing the gun. Even experienced shooters have done this. Advantages are a (generally) higher accuracy and a higher rate of fire.

Double action: the gun is never cocked until you pull the trigger, which has a long enough travel to c-ock (filter avoidance spelling) the gun and fire. Much safer and often used in revolvers, pocket and concealed carry automatic pistols.

DA/SA: a mix of the two - the safer double action on the first shot, and the higher rate of fire of single action thereafter.

Ammo:

.380 (AKA 9mm Short) is a bare minimum if you need a backup gun, and a 9mm is just a bit better. The difference is just 2mm in case length (17 vs. 19 mm) and a bit more powder. 9mm's are used widely for one reason: cheap ammo due to its use by the military, not knock-down power. Police departments are moving away from 9mm because of this, and the FBI lead the way after a disasterous shootout in Florida where they lost several agents. The result: the creation of the .40 S&W, which is now the FBI's service round.

IMO the only calibers that should be considered for defense purposes in an automatic are the .45 ACP, .40 S&W (FBI and too many agencies & PD's to list), .357 SIG (Federal Air Marshals: a .357 cal in a necked-down .40 S&W case), the FN 5.7 mm (US Secret Service & another alphabet soup of intl. agencies), and the 10 mm (parent of the .40 S&W).

Even with good cartridges you also need the right bullet, and this means oner designed fto deliver hydrostatic shock - essentially a combat round like Winchester Ranger, Remington Golden Saber or the Federal HST (my favorite).

For revolvers look at the Smith & Wesson and Rugers

Start looking here for automatics - all fine weapons.
