Considering buying a handgun? That comes as no surprise when you take the current political and social spheres into account. But before running out and buying a handgun, there are a few things you should know.
Before purchasing your first handgun, you have to ask yourself the question, "Why do I need (or want) a handgun?" More often than not, the answer will be self-defense. That was the reason I purchased my first handgun and it is likely why you are here today. After that, you have a whole slew of decisions to make that include picking between a revolver or semi-automatic, calibers, brands and models – the list goes on and on.
Eventually, just like I did, you will come to settle on one handgun that meets all of your needs. For me, it was the Springfield XD-45.
The Springfield XD-45 is a striker-fired, semi-automatic pistol that utilizes a short-recoil operation and is, as its name suggests, chambered for the powerful .45 ACP cartridge. This service pistol, known for its rugged durability and reliable operation, packs a mighty punch that makes it a great choice for personal protection. Each pistol includes two 13-round magazines, a magazine loader, a magazine holder and a holster, all of which comes packed in a hard, suitcase-style case.
After putting countless rounds through my Springfield XD-45, I can say with complete confidence and honesty that I made the right choice. Make sure you do too by picking up a Springfield XD-45 today for $509.
