Say you are in need of a gun for self-defense but your budget is not the best, in fact is downright minimal. What to do? Logic tell buy the best gun you can afford but taking in consideration you need ammo, training and range time.
You figure something like this would be a good buy:
Actually it is a great buy from Palmetto Armory. But I actually found somebody online that actually said Ruger guns are crap, specially the LCP. Of course immediately after, TactiBoi let us all know he only carries (fanfare) Sig guns because fit, finish and the occasional orgasm he gets when caressing the metal engraved with the letters S-I-G.
I also have heard tales of “instructors” or people teaching somebody how to shoot and their first word coming out of their mouths are “This is a shit gun, You need get a (fill the blank)” or words to that effect. Those people are not only Gun Snobs but the wrong type of people to be teaching anything self defense.
Here is my proposition: If somebody gets a gun you consider cheap and would never be caught shooting one because of tactical cooties, you can go ahead and give him/her one of your super-duper pew-pew emitters or create a GoFundMe to get that person one that has your seal of approval. Deal?
