Hello /nra/

I am going to buy my first pistol in the coming week or two. Currently my only firearm is an old bolt action rifle. I have fired pistols maybe 5 times in my life. I know the simple rules of gun safety, and that's about all. What is a good type of gun and sort of place to acquire it for an idiot with no knowledge or experience? Should I buy it at a local gun shop or online? Any input appreciated.

Budget is $500 or less. Was hoping to pick up some ammo with the weapon too.

Reason for firearm ownership is practicing at the range, and self-defense for the home.

Feel the grip and make sure you like the sights before you purchase any handgun, glock is an easy first choice if your area isn't in the middle of a price spike. Bersa has good budget guns. CZ has some old models that are usually under 500

CZ P-07 or P-09 could be a good choice because of the price. Think about guns like the Caniks, Grand Powers, SD9's as well. That's all I can think of off the top of my head that fits your price range new.

If I were you I'd find a local gun store or two with good selections so you can hold some guns. Personal preference is king and don't let the clerks sell you something you don't want.

This right here. It so much like a glock that from what I've heard they owe money to Glock each time one is sold.

Its pretty much everything you're looking for, good range gun, good home defense. As the guy who sold me mine said, "If I had to storm the Kermlin with only a handgun, this is what I'd take."

Take down lever is a bitch though.

I'm starting to get really interested in Archery as a hobby - target, not hunting. Any recommendations for a mid-level compound, and/or recurve? I like the idea of both. Would prefer something beyond a beginner that I won't grow out of quickly.

I have one and its lovely. Looks sweet too. Not crazy expensive either.

I say go recurve if it's just a hobby, I have both and the compound is for hunting and recurve is for fun.

i've got a 35# bear takedown recurve, and i think it's pretty much exactly what you're looking for (though you'll want a can of paint). should be less than $150US, target and arrows included

I second sammick. I have a 55# sammick recurve takedown bow for hunting deer, it was just over $200us ordered online from an archery shop that was out of state.

It's a beautiful piece of work, and I would say mid level considering it's much better than anything you'd find at Walmart, but not nearly as expensive as some of their recurve bows which went upwards of $600.

I had to buy my own target and arrows, but that'd be maybe another $50 for the target plus half a dozen arrows with bullet tips

I have a pair of Rothco Jungle Boots, even a pair of tan ones while on active duty.

The tan pair had the heel literally rip off the front while on patrol, so they were junk and lasted maybe 2 months. The Vietnam jungle boots have lasted for over 2 years now, I wear then hiking and camping a lot.

Another one is Sturm-Miltec

I bought an Zelt Tent and it faded like crazy.

Now, I've been recently getting into firearms in general. Just took the CW course in my state and I'm dead set on getting a Glock 17 from that experience after trying a few other 9mm pistols. However, for the most part, I'm not sure whether or not I'd prefer a Gen 3 or Gen 4.

While I could look at the differences between the two online, which I intend to do as I get closer to making a decision for purchase, I was wondering if anyone here on /nra/ could assist me in making a decision between Gen 3 or Gen 4.

Beyond the listed differences/updates were there any subtle differences that you noticed that might not be mentioned in a cursory google search between the two (trigger sensitivity, potential cleaning issues, magazine spring, grip feel, etc.)?

Since my budget isn't amazing high right now, is the difference in price worth the purchase at this point or should I consider looking into a used/refurbished one of the two and if so, which one?

Any recommended initial attachment purchases (different sight, extended mag, flashlight, etc.)?

Any info would be very much appreciated.

Gen 4 is not simply better in my experience. Gen 3 feels better to me. Like most things its a matter of the individuals build and preferences.

There is a reason they still make the Gen 3.

Get ready to be schooled op!
Gen 3's have different stippling on the grip thus providing a different feel. They're much smoother than the gen 4's rough textured frame. Gen 4's come with a set of backstraps to attach, but I find them to be an unnecessary marketing gimicks. If you really want to change the grip to your liking this can be done on any generation. Older gen 3 models have a different finish on the slide similar to that of a teflon frying pan. I find these more desirable than current production gen 3's, and 4's because it is less prone to scratches and smudging. It is a darker shinier black than the greyish finish used today. There's also a rarer version of the gen 3 called the RTF2 which has a different stippling pattern that's more similar to the gen 4 but much smaller when compared. These sometimes have strangely cut slide serrations known as "fish gills" to glock connoiseurs. As any unique rarity in the world things of this nature typically fetch a higher price for collectibility purposes. I've noticed the polymer frames are slightly different in look and feel throughout the generations of changes and higher production rates. Some seem darker and less grainy compared to lighter colored frames. In my old gen 4 (sold now) I could see a blatant casting line running through the middle where the casts connected. It's probably just differs between the date of the batch, and location as some glocks are made in Austria, and some in America. Gen 3's as previously stated have a less robust recoil spring compared to the newer dual recoil spring. They supposedly reduce recoil, but from my personal experience it was very minimal if at all barely noticable of a difference. I compared the same model through different generations side by side. I don't have a problem with the older recoil springs, and as the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it. Some early batches of gen 4's had malfunctions due to the dual recoil spring actually, but glock has since fixed the issue. In my personal opinion I would say shoot for an older used gen 3 police trade in because it will be cheaper than a brand new gen 4.

With that all said my preference is …

Nope! If there is a difference it's miniscule. I had two 23s and the muzzleflip/recoil felt the same between the gen 4 and gen 2. Maybe there's a more noticable difference in the longslide models you used. From my experience the .40S&W in a compact frame will be snappy regardless of springs used. I ditched my gen 4 and kept the gen 2. It's got an overall better feel to it in my opinion so i'm more accustomed to it thus improving accuracy and comfort.

Reading William Gibson's "Zero History".

A large plot point is the civilian market for tactical gear, he actually drops the terms "operators", "mall ninjas", and "gear queers", and one of the villains is a fashion designer with special forces pretensions, who acts like a spy in a movie, and is after a coveted military contract to design uniforms for the US.

The protagonists' employer, Hubertus Bigend, a sort of meme and trope savvy Lex Luthor type, mentions a sort of psychosis endemic to the special forces, that they're promised that their training will qualify them to do anything, and they end up believing it, so they become sort of self-hypnotised con artists who believe their own pitch, and you end up with unqualified, delusional ex-soldiers teaching anti-terrorist and interrogation techniques to third world police and militaries.

So, read anything topical lately?
