What makes you assume I have money for a Glock? Besides, I don't want a Glock anyway. The only German pistol I'll ever buy is a Walther or Mauser.

Thanks.

You need to be 21 to own a pistol.
If your Mom buys it for you knowing it will be yours It might be considered a "straw purchase" , maybe?

depends on the state laws in MI you have to be 21 to buy a handgun from a dealer, but only 18 for a private sale.

If your parents provide it, you only have to be 18(at least that is IN law?)

Glad to hear your Ma is making YOU pay for Your first hand gun purchase.
I hear too many stories of parents Buying the affection of their children.
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 10:53:36 PM EDT
In your current situation, follow two simple rules:

1) Get a good quality gun.

2) Get a caliber with cheap ammo.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 12:16:49 AM EDT
1. Your mom is cool
2. You said you were shooting for a 1911 or Glock. As this is your first, I recommend the Glock. Practice your handgun skills, then go for a nice 1911. The Glock is the reliable utility pistol that won't fail you, the 1911 is the pistolman's pistol.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 12:20:29 AM EDT
1911

first gun i get when i turn 2-1 in oct

already got the mags and ammo for it......

if money is that tight, a G19 would fit the bill for a cheap, reliable HG--police trade ins are for ~$360 or so....(my second gun in nov, already got mags and ammo for that too)

if not, G21 or G30 (higher ammo prices, but what the hell.....) my 3rd gun

got the mags and ammo for that too.....

now its holsters....

Ask the French if it makes a difference what flavor of kraut you're dealing with.

I convinced my dad to buy the first few pistols we now own, but not for my affection. After that, he makes me pay for all firearms. Good to see you buying it (theoretically) yourself.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 7:21:52 PM EDT
Man...when I was 17 I already had a Glock 17, and SIG P226.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 7:28:51 PM EDT
Save up for a 1911. If you want a handgun, get a real handGUN!

Just think about what you really want so you are happy and satisfied with whatever you eventually get.
