    Greetings all! Excited to be here. I've been a knife enthusiast and frequented the knife forums a lot, but never had the blessing from the Mrs. to own a gun. With things changing I'm looking to make my first firearm purchase soon but demand is so high right now. I just missed out on a PPQ .40 S&W for $300 at my local shop by 10 minutes! Done a lot of research on the VP9 so I'm hoping that will be my first purchase.

    Good to be here and thinking this is going to be a major time suck on this forum! :P

    Howdy and welcome to TGT.

    Just remember it dont matter if you have 6 shooter, a semi auto pistol, lever action or a evil BLACK GUN the left will try to come after them one by one with regulations. Dont let the media fool you about how many bullets your gun needs to hold. All gun owners need to stick together for our 2A rights.

    The VP9 is a nice pistol. Stick with quality firearms. The really cheap stuff comes with problems you don't need.

    One thing about a pistol is that you need to spend some serious time learning how to shoot it. In the movies it's all "point and click", but in real life, there is a lot of discipline that is needed if you expect to hit where you want to hit. Also, because of the relatively short barrel, it can be easy to accidentally shoot yourself or someone nearby while you are handling the pistol. Find a gun range, spend some time there. Take lessons - formally or informally from someone who has experience.
