Handgun Tips: Choosing the Right One [VIDEO]

What should you look for when buying a new handgun?

We all love to go shopping. This is especially true when we are shopping for a new handgun, but guns are not all alike. Just because your friend or friend's wife loves a particular handgun, doesn't mean it will suit your needs.

It may not fit properly in your hand, you may not be able to see the sights, or you might not like how it handles recoil. You need to choose the best gun for you.

Kristin Larson, lead instructor at Prime Defense, provides some helpful handgun tips for the Personal Defense Network. She helps you understand what to look for when testing handguns.


How does the gun feel? Is the grip comfortable? Can you reach all the controls easily? How does it fire? You should ask yourself each of these questions when buying a new handgun.

If it's not the right fit for you, then you don't buy it. Keep looking until you find exactly what you need.
