Every time I go to the range, I always find myself coming back to:

http://www.sigsauer.com/upFiles/catalog/product/P220-CARRY-DAK-detail-L.jpg

The Sig 220 DAK .45

I started off with .9mm and tried out the .40's, but found the 220 Carry to be the most comfortable weapon I've fired, and easily the best experience. That is, except for the time the range let me try out the Kimber Ultra Covert II. Which, was just too cool for words. I've also tried out my dad's S&W .9mm service revolver, and his .45 ACP. I dug the S&W, but it felt more like a "name" than anything else. I plan on making the 220 my first purchase.

Also, Glock sucks. So fucking uncomfortable. The guys at the range won't let me pick up a Taurus either. They say it'll swear me off of pistols.

I have a whole crapload of Sci-Fi gun props. Though I rather hanker for a Steyr M-Series wondernine. I have fired a Chinese hunting AK, a classic m1911 .45, a couple of .22 target rifles, as well as a ww1 Mauser that about broke my freaking shoulder.

Let's see... What I actually have...

A full automatic roll cap minigun,
a battlestar galactica laser pistol,
a new battlestar heavy pistol,
a B5 PPG,
a Trade Federation Droid Blaster,
A Laser Screwdriver,
a Merr-Sonn Quickfire 2,
A couple of Edison Giocattoli Colt Americas,
an Edison Giocattoli Janus Pistol (Aka Superpistola),
About 4 Robocoppy Baretta knockoffs,
an airsoft MP5,
the Hellboy Samaritan,
the 'Tattooine Blaster',
Jayne Cobb's LeMat,
Corben Dallas' Steyr Caseless Pistol,
a Nerf Maverick,
a couple of strange, but eminently steampunkable Dollar store guns
A big thing I got at a toys r us once called a Roargun
And some budget Jango Fett Westar 34's.

I've made rather a lot of sci fi gun replicas in Second Life as well. I've got pics if anyone's interested.

The Taurus indeed can suck my balls. I tried a LOT of different pistols when I used to go to the range, and that was one. You find your hand vibrating to the shot really badly. Not a nice experience. Likewise hated the Desert Eagle. Piece of crap with a really top heavy slide and no balance at all.

Found the Glock 9 and 40 to suck but actually liked their 45. It was more comfortable and was better with recoil than the 40 for sure. At least to me.

Love the Springfield 1911 45s. Love the look of the Kimbers, but never got to fire one in good shape. Love S&W magnums too.

And yeah, the Sig. I used to have an S&W .357 magnum and that same exact Sig in the picture. Nice shooting.

Never cared much for a lot of the other pistols they had. The style of the 1911s was always my favorite but never owned one.

There's something about how Glock molds their grips that makes the weapons so uncomfortable I would rather throw the thing.

I've heard from a lot of people that the Desert Eagle is way over rated. I personally don't see the practicality in it. Other than for show and tell.

Or maybe hunting bears.

Yeah, agreed. But I used to shoot this Glock 45 that was double stack, so that handle was thicker and it was much more comfortable. Actually liked that one. But only that one.

The Desert Eagle seems to me to just be for people who like the way it looks. Looks like shit to me though. And it shoots horribly. If anyone wants to fire a big gun that's *fun* to shoot, just go for the S&W 44 Magnum. That's a lotta fun, very accurate and not painful on your hand.

Eh, it's got an aura around it. Plus, it's ginormous.

I don't see the point of going higher than a .45, personally (again, unless your hunting bears or something). But I'm not that experienced with guns.

I used to go to this range in Oregon that was staffed by police. It was right next to a police station. And those guys basically taught me how to shoot. They told me that basically a lot of people love Glocks because they don't fail. That they're rock solid and won't mess up. The 1911's, by comparison, are famous for being very nitpicky and you have to be very good about your maintenance. I guess with the Glocks, you don't have to be so nice to the pistol for it to be nice to you. I still prefer the 1911s myself, but never having owned one and not being in the line of fire, I have that luxury.

Still, that Sig sure fires nicer. At least for me.

Can't remember the caliber of the Desert Eagle but it's a waste anyway. Yeah, .45 is big enough.

They had tommy guns at that range too, though not full auto. Those fuckers were .45 too, which is crazy. Imagine that.

They are both pretty heavy frankly. The G3 has been modified to be a long range gun (unfortunately I can't find a local range larger than 500 yards.)

I'm a big fan of the 308 and between the two I personally like the fit and feel of the G3 over the Fal. One of my good friends is a huge FAL guy, he competes in all of the local tournaments and usually takes one of the top 3 places. For me it's just fit and finish. I prefer the relative smooth feel of the G3. Also, as it doesn't use a blowback system like the AR it is a relatively clean system. Which I really like since I shoot mostly mil ammo.

Wow... you normally shoot out to 500 yards? With a G3? Impressive.

The longest I ever shoot is 300 with a Remington 700 30-06. And I'm not to great at that.

I tend to prefer 100 yard or less with a .223. It is fun and cheaper than .308 or 30-06.

I've thrown some extra stuff on the gun to give me some more range, but it is a large bullet and wind can add to the fun of it. I've only shot the 500 yard range once. And normally go to the 300 yard range. As for the ammo, I have a Seal friend who brought me a crate of ammo over. And that helps considerably. In fact I was just gifted with a crate of 300 win. I have nothing thats shoots it, so I am probably going to sell it off. All my ammo is stored in the OD military waterproof packages, which makes storage pretty easy.

Just look up a local range. The ones in the Portland area all had their own guns too, so you can borrow different ones and try them out if it's the same there. They'll probably have you watch a 20 minute safety video, then you're off. You can ask them for pointers and sure they'll help you if you tell them you're a virgin.

I used to enjoy it a lot. There's a range around here somewhere but I dunno what the deal is with me going there considering I'm an American. Some of us have talked about going and we'll get around to it one day and see.

Unless you are tiny, or you are firing a really powerful round, you don't need to worry about it too much either way.

I always recommend people start with a .22 bolt-action rifle if they can. It is what I learned on when I was a kid.

5' 10" and about 175#.

I think I would prefer a bolt action rifle over a semi automatic anyways. For some reason I feel more in control of the gun, when I have to dispense and chamber a new round. It seems safer and a better gun to try out with.

I was just curious as to how guns with a stock differed from one's without.

This is a bit simplified, but...

Typically, if you have a stock, based on your shooting position, the recoil is transferred parallel to the barrel rearward to your shoulder. A rifle will push back horizontally straight against you shoulder with little muzzle lift.

With a pistol, typically, the recoil is perpendicular to the barrel making the pistol rise vertically.

I learned using a rifle in the prone position. It is probably the best way to learn all the basics of breathing, aiming and sight picture, and how to smoothly squeeze the trigger.
