Handguns come in a multitude of flavors these days. From light to heavy and compact to bulky there is one for every taste. However, it can be quite challenging at times to decide what is the best handgun for you. This little guide aims to make that process a bit easier.
Every person is a bit different and therefore their definition of the best handgun is different as well. This guide is supposed to be general in nature and I hope you all treat it like that.
Proper gun weight is necessary!
It seems like everyone and their dog recommends you to get a lightweight handgun. While peer pressure can be quite daunting, my friend Eren’s experience may help you realize what is important. You see, Eren was in the market for a handgun recently. He took the advice and spent 800 bucks on the lightest thing they had.
Ecstatic after his purchase of what he believed was the best handgun, he hurried to the nearest shooting range. As soon as he fired the gun, the recoil from it left him swearing and cussing at the wind. He was quick to realize that light doesn’t mean good. The light weight of the gun made it more susceptible to recoil and lengthened the time between shots.
That doesn’t mean you should start carrying a bulky gun either. Doing this will not only make it harder to carry, it will also be difficult to conceal.
Grip size and texture can affect you!
How the gun feels and how easily you can use it’s different parts also matter. Grip size refers to the trigger reach. If the gun you are eyeing requires you to slide your finger back and forth every-time you wanna shoot it ain’t worth it. Nobody is perfect and mishaps can happen due to this in tense situations.
Similarly, if you feel that the texture is not to your liking and it hurts the way you handle your gun, change it! The best handgun for you should feel right in every way.
Wrong ammo can affect your caliber!
You can never go wrong with 9mm rounds. Not only are they cheaper in comparison, they are also easily available at most places. The fact that a lot of military research supports its efficacy is the cherry on top! This is no doubt the best round to pair up with your best handgun.
Now, it is time for the most important factor of them all!
What is the better than having the trifecta of feel, handling and ammo? Bling duh!
As evident by the gift Pakistani MPs gave to the Crown Prince of Saudi, bling rules above all. The rule of cool is supreme even in real life and this gold-plated MP-5 is a testament to that.
This was a return gift in lieu of the gold-plated Kalashnikov. Prince Fahad bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz had gifted it to president Imran Khan in January.
I also agree with the sentiments of the people above. After all, if you pull your gun out to shoot someone, you better look like a cool Mafia Boss while doing so.
