Handgun recommendation


I've only ever owned shotguns. I want to buy a handgun, mostly for home/truck defense. Give me some recommendations, OB.

ETA: I have a feeling the first response wil be "Judge".

It's a fine weapon. If I had to narrow all mine down to one, it would probably be that one.

I recommend going to your friendly neighborhood gun range and trying out the guns you are interested in, if they have them.

For home/truck defense, you'll probably want a reliable full sized handgun. Springfield, Glock, S&W, etc. all make very reliable guns, for an affordable price. Try to narrow it down to a few you like, put them in your hand and see how they feel. Shoot them if you can.

1. Beretta PX4 Storm
2. Glock to your liking
3. Springfield XD

Can't go wrong there.

Ruger GP100 or SP 101 357 if you like revolvers.

I like my FN FNP 40. Springfield Armory is making nice ones now too.

I suggest S&W M&P. 9 or 45 would be my choice. Very reliable!

Full size double action .357 magnum revolver is the most reliable thing you can buy. Also packs significantly more ass.

Are you only keeping it in your truck or are you using it for both?

If both: Glock

If truck only: something cheap. Taurus maybe.
