I have been wanting to purchase a gun for some time now. Today was the first day that I actually started researching it. I have been around guns all my life, and I know gun safety and how to properly load and fire most guns. I was researching the particular model of gun that I would want to own. Doing a quick search on google revealed this web site. It was fascinating. It makes sense in hindsight, but I never realized that people actually researched the effectiveness of ammunition on humans. I assumed that all bullets were bad, and as equally effective in a given caliber. Was I ever wrong.
At any rate I am looking for a handgun. I have no strong preference at he moment, but the glock sounds like a good weapon.
