I’ve been through more guns than the average person, but that’s mainly because there are many that are sent to review. It’s a huge perk that comes with the job. No, I don’t get to keep them. No need to be exceedingly jealous.
Having been through and shot a lot of handguns, my tastes haven’t really changed all that much throughout the years.
It all started with a Ruger SR9c, which was my first purchase and first gun that I ever carried. Roughly after a year, it was retired. It’s nothing against the gun or the design, or the company. I just had a lemon. Long story short, it went back a few times and Ruger did a fantastic job on the customer service end, but we could never resolve the problem.
So, it became a range gun.
My second purchase, which was just a few weeks after the Ruger, was a Glock 27. Once I was comfortable with it at the range, it became my new carry gun. That lasted for about 2 years. Then, it became a Glock 26.
It’s still a Glock 26, mainly, as there are two others that get somewhat of a rotation:
- Glock 26
- FN FNS 9c
- Springfield XDs 9mm
The point is, it took me a while to find a ‘perfect’ carry gun. There is no such thing, in my opinion, but it’s close.
Anyway, that’s my story in a nutshell. Do you still carry the first gun you ever carried?
