Okay, well first off, it is good to be posting a little bit more on the forum again. It has been a long(ish) time. That being said, let's get to the actual topic.
So I am not 21 so I can not legally purchase a handgun under my name, Nor can I legally purchase any firearm for that matter (I'm under 18). However, I do enjoy shooting and am no stranger to it, so please don't let my age take away your interest to this thread. My mom recently expressed interest in buying 1-2 firearms for self defense/home defense/target shooting-fun. She originally planned on surprising my dad and I, but did not know how to go about purchasing a firearm. So she asked me to do some research. I'd say the budget is under $600 (preferably in the 500's) per gun.
I don't know much specifics about guns (I said I was no stranger to shooting, but not in detail about the different guns). All I really know is that we would probably want a 9mm, maybe a Glock 19 or G17? My mom is also interested in concealed carry. This gun is not just for her however they are intended for family use/practice as well. I do know that to get the best results we would need to go to a gun store and actually handle the firearms themselves and we should shoot them too. However, I don't want to go in there with nothing in mind. To put it short, I'm posting this thread in hopes that some of you on here with experience with firearms could point me in the right direction and maybe give me some good first time buy suggestions.
