If you are in the market for a great 9mm pistol for a low cost, you will find the Taurus line of 9mms hard to beat. I own several Taurus firearms not because they are cheap, but because they are great guns at a good price.
My Taurus G3 was purchased to use for gun range duty only and has been modified for my personal needs. Since it came with 15 round and 17 round magazines I already had a good start.
Here is a list of modifications I added.
Stainless Steel Recoil Assembly Guide Rod
Stainless Steel Striker Guide
Mounting Plate for Optics
Burris FastFire 3 Red Dot Optic
2 Mec-Gar 20 Round Magazines with sleeves
Rail Mounted Tactical Light
I have several friends who own Taurus G3, G2C, and other 9mm Taurus firearms. We all have one thing in common, and that is the enjoyment of shooting accurate low-cost guns without the fear of wearing out an expensive firearm.
Men and Women are finding it necessary to learn firearm safety and proficiency due to current state of our country, and to get concealed carry licenses.
My wife, daughter and their friends are also learning the fun and excitement of spending a day at the gun range. My wife prefers a 9mm Taurus PT-111 Millennium G2 for her range gun.
My nightstand gun is a Taurus G2C with a Streamlight TLR-6 Flashlight and Red Laser.
I am not A Taurus Fanboy, as I enjoy using and collecting firearms of every brand. I do not mind putting a lot of rounds through my Taurus guns since they are reliable and low cost. I also find it cheaper to shoot 9mm as compared to other rounds, and my 9mms are all Taurus brand firearms.
In Conclusion: If you are new to pistols, a collector, an occasional shooter, or any firearms enthusiast you cannot go wrong with the Taurus G3 9mm as a gun that will serve your needs at a low cost.
Due to the recent run on guns and ammunition, there has been a lot of confusion surrounding the best gun for new shooters. There are a lot of great guns available at varying cost, however some people do not have the option of spending $500 for a gun when they are on a tight budget.
One of my favorite low-cost gun manufacturers is Taurus. If you want a great gun that will not cost you a fortune for your first purchase, you may want to see some of the many options by Taurus. If you want a gun that is a great value and not cheaply made Taurus has many options and has a Lifetime Warranty on their firearms.
You may want to consider the Taurus G2C in 9mm at a cost of around $250. The G2C is a compact 10 or 12 round semi-auto pistol that comes with 2 magazines and has many great reviews.
I also think that the Taurus 856 revolver in 38spcl is a great gun for the new shooter. At a cost of around $380. The Taurus 856 is a 6 shot revolver that is capable of handling +P 38 special rounds. This is an extremely easy gun to learn how to use for new shooters.
If you are more inclined to purchase a shotgun for home defense, you may want to consider a Mossberg 500, or the less expensive Mossberg Maverick. These are 12-gauge shotguns and can be used for hunting, home defense, or sporting clays. Since there are so many different models of these shotguns, its best to do your research to see which best suits your price requirements and needs.
Some people may prefer a rifle for their first gun, and if that is the case for you, there are many to choose from and a lot to consider. I think an AR15 or AK47 is a good rifle choice, however many people do not like the reputation associated with them. There are many other choices like, lever action, bolt action, pump action, and other semi-auto rifles available. Since there are so many rifles to choose from, you may want to do your research to see what suits your budget and needs.
