As many of you know, last week I picked up my first handgun.

I went with a Smith & Wesson M&P 9 Compact (Military and Police). Even though I’m not a pro, I really dig the gun and feel like it will be a good fit for me.

If you’re looking to purchase your first firearm, here are the steps that brought me to this purchase:

  1. Caliber
  2. Frame Size
  3. Price
  4. Handling and Ergonomics
  5. Shooting
  6. New in a shop or used through a private party?


If interested, you can check out the specs on my gun here.
