What to Consider When Purchasing a Firearm

If you're looking to purchase a firearm, there are several things you should consider before making a decision. Here are some tips to help you make an informed purchase, whether this is your first firearm or another piece for your arsenal:




1. Clean and perform a safety inspection:

It is always a good idea to clean and perform a safety inspection on a newly purchased firearm, whether it is brand new or not.


2. Shop with the person who will be using it:

Guns are very personalized and individualized, so it is best to not shop for someone without them there. The person who will be using it needs to know how to use it, and trying before you buy is always best.


3. Consider the gun's purpose:

What is the gun's purpose? Will it be used for everyday carry or kept in a drawer for home defense? Knowing the gun's purpose will help you make a more informed decision.


4. Revolvers are reliable:

Revolvers are the most bare bones and reliable platform.


5. Consider the brand:

Different brands have different reputations. For example, M&P is an acquired taste and often suffers major failures in high round count. Beretta has a pretty solid reputation for the handgun platform. FNS is great, and most German guns are reliable. Remington 1911 is not recommended, while Kimber 1911 is meant to be a high-end firearm but has very little quality control.


BONUS TIP! SIG 320 is a good option: 

SIG 320 is a high-end and well-balanced firearm that is affordable and was recently chosen as the military's new sidearm.


6. Guns are individualized:

Guns are very individualized items, and what you think matters. It's important to find a gun that feels comfortable and natural to you.


In conclusion, purchasing a firearm is a big decision that requires careful consideration. By following these tips, you can make an informed purchase that meets your needs and preferences. Remember to shop with the person who will be using it, consider the gun's purpose, and choose a brand with a good reputation.
