What is the Most Reliable Handgun of All Time?
This question always sparks a debate on gun forums, but it is a fun subject if you don’t get too worked up about it. What’s the most reliable handgun of all time?
Owning a reliable handgun and knowing how to use it responsibly is vitally important for Americans. For every gun crime that makes that national news, there are dozens — perhaps hundreds — of instances when a homeowner uses a handgun defensively and it never makes the news.
Let’s face it, when a homeowner brandishes a firearm and has a burglar hold still until the police arrive, that’s just not as “sexy” of a story for the news media as instances when a gun is actually fired. But the truth is, that is how most defensive gun encounters begin and end — without a shot being fired.
It’s not just important to own a defensive handgun. You also have to know how to use it. The NRA offers a variety of training courses that are extremely inexpensive (sometimes free) and which are incredibly informative.
In a beginner’s class you’ll learn important gun safety principles, your state’s laws regarding personal defense, how to take your gun apart and clean it, and you’ll probably get some time in at a range with an instructor.
In more advanced classes, such as tactical shooting courses, you’ll have a blast running a couple of thousand rounds through your pistol until you know how to use it like a pro.
