I finally got a gun, I got a Rossi .38 special. I am real happy with it, took it out shooting today. I was going to get a .357 but I got a good package deal on this one. 8)

Went out to my brothers with the wife and blew off 50 shells. Next weekend were going to a indoor gun range and do some more shooting. My brothers setting it up, I hope it ain't expensive. :D

If you want to go with an auto I recommend a Firestorm .380. I have one for personal protection and I love it. Some might think that a .380 isn't much but 7+1 in the gun and another 7 close at hand makes me fell much safer that a stub nose .357 ever would. If you go this route I recommend CorBon 90gr JHP. Good luck.

I just bought a Beretta .380 today, it's a retired State police issue. It came with 3- 13 round clips, I can't wait to shoot it tomorrow.

I took the .380 out and ran 100 rounds through it (and it didn't take long), what a sweet gun.

I can't figure this site out, look at how many people viewed this thread and look at the replies. If every other person who viewed it would reply this would be a buisy site. Maybe I talk about the wrong things.

Not really. Just because some one looks does not mean that they are interested in replying to the thread...

Sad though it is......
