Hello,

Just got my permit in Sherburne County. 24 years old, UMD graduate, working 9 to 5 for the next 5,000 years. I'm excited to build a gun collection of my own, so it's great to see all the reviews and advice on here. Might start it off on Labor day with a .45...........

I have not bought anything yet. I've spent a lot of time researching and trying to figure out what I want, but it's pretty overwhelming. Any suggestions on where to purchase? I've looked at the bgi places, Cabelas and Gander, and some small places, Bills and J&S. While I want to invest in something reliable and practical, I don't really have $1000 to spend right now. Suggestions would be apreciated.

Make sure you add Gunstop (Minnetonka) and Frontiersman (St. Louis Park) to your list. You'll be amazed by the lower prices.

Give us a few thoughts that you've had in terms of your intended use for this pistol, and we'll gladly offer suggestions. We're good at that... :mrgreen:

There are lots and lots of reliable, accurate, fun-to-shoot pistols available used for under $500. You should have no problem finding it, once you decide what "it" is! :)

Well, I ended up going with the Glock 17 9mm. Partly because of its good reputation, partly becuase it was cheaper than many other i looked at, and partly because i was tired of looking and just wanted one! i might be a little guilty of an impulse buy, but i dont think completely. i am happy with it so far, ive been to the range 3 times with it. not sure how much longer i can afford the ammo each time. any ideas where to get a bulk amount to last me awhile?

A Glock 17 is a workhorse. As long as it points well for you, you did good. 8)

Cheapest 9mm, assuming you aren't reloading, is Walmart. Fleet Farm isn't far behind.
