The Top 5 Guns You Should Buy With Your Tax Return

What guns should you buy with that nice little chunk of change coming your way? We’ll help.

It’s tax season, and that doesn’t always mean fun, happy times. But hey, if you’re married and have any kids, you know a tax return can be a nice, significant piece of extra money, which doesn’t have any attachments to it.

Well, hopefully it doesn’t, because after you see these beauties, you’re definitely going to want to spend that tax return money on a handgun.

Each of these would make fine choices, and each can be found at Wasatch Guns for a price comparable, if not downright better, than anywhere else.

1. Glock 19 Gen 4

The G19 is a wise pick, and the success of the model speaks for itself. More Glock 19s are found on the market and in the possession of gun owners than a lot of other, older guns companies.

The carrying capabilities of this gun are second to none. The completely customizable and modular back straps fit just about any hand size or shape, allowing this to feel like it was the gun made for you.

MSRP $649 – Wasatch Guns Price $515

2. Smith & Wesson M&P 9

The Smith & Wesson M&P 9 comes from a trusted name and brand, but modernizes the initial idea you get when you hear the S&W moniker.

The double action 9mm won’t back down and has a sturdy polymer frame and blue finish. It looks as good as it performs.

Available now at Wasatch Guns for $442

3. Glock 17 Gen 4

Yet again, the Glock 17 has the interchangeable back straps to the grip and also is the most widely used law enforcement pistol in the world.

The Safe Action trigger is worthy of a dissertation of information itself, but it boils down to simplifying the entire gun operation, and allows for a easy-to-understand process.

4. Sig Sauer P226

The P226 is a beast of a gun, and it’s nice to look at, too. The higher price tag accommodates for the extra controls and complexity, which can sometimes be more than is really necessary.

But if a SIG P226 is what you want, then more power to you. It’s a great gun, just not for everybody.

Available now at Wasatch Guns for $873

4. Springfield Armory XD Mod.2 9mm

The XD® Mod.2® is another interesting-looking gun, which doesn’t quite have the bells and whistles the P226 has, and the price reflects that.

It’s a smooth and repeatable shooter, features minimal recoil problems, and has a minimalist approach when it comes to external controls. 

Available now at Wasatch Guns for $437

Remember, you don’t have to spend a tax return on a gun, but once you check out Wasatch Guns and see what they’ve got, the choice will sort of be made for you.
