    I know about 25 I think when my stepfather bought a box was 26 the reason I would buy a 25 is if I could found a colt pocket model Like my mothers

    First gun buy a 9mm. They are easy to control and the ammo is the cheapest! if your pretty new to shooting your best friend is shooting! you will need to shoot, shoot, and shoot! S&W sigma's are 340-350 new so they wont break the bank.

    You don't want a .25 auto!!!!!!!! Shot a TV screen of an old tube style tv a few years back with one and it didn't go through the screen!

    well if you don't mind the 9x18 ammunition, you may just want to think about getting a makarov. More specifically a FEG PA 63.

    How is kel tec I looked at one for 269 bland new in 9mm. I really like the makavor and the cz 82 but the ammo is alittle hard to found compared to the 9mm they said it was a med frame pistol

    Thats a winner, the CZ82 is a fantastic little shooter, and ruggedly built too. Then you can buy its cousin the CZ 83 and have a .380 too. Either one will run you about 200-300 at any gunshop that carries them, I have seen some gougers put a set of aftermarket grips on the 83s and try to get sig money for them, so dont be fooled. The CZs are better than sigs anyway IMO...

    The 9X18 is a tad more powerful than the .380 and a tad less powerful than the 9 luger.

    .380 = 9X17mm
    then 9X18 makarov
    and 9 luger = 9X19 parabellum

    The 9X18 makarov is a milsurp caliber, Youd be best ordering it in bulk from the internet or finding a military gun supply store.

    Right now I have no clue what I want I looked a the rock island 1911 and I have looked at the ruger p95 and the makavor and the cz but til I find one of each of them and feel them but as far as what I seen on here and online I like the ruger the best so far the because I could afford one new. And I really like ruger too

    I once had a CZ 7.62x25mm and wish like heck I didnt let it go! The one I "had" was a great shooter and a buddy of mine has one and been trying to get it off him for some time now...nothing wrong with them at all as far as I know!

    The Kel-tec P11 is a 9mm they offer, and it's a decent gun. I've owned and carried one for years. Never had a problem with it.

    I've no experience with their PF9 - the really slim one, but, I imagine it too is a great 9mm.

    Would the kel tec be too small to practice with I looked at a ruger p89 in 9mm for 250 and a hi point in 9mm also

    Remington first decide what you want the gun for.

    If it's just for range and maybe Home Defense look at 9mm.

    If you want a pocket pistol get something like a Beretta Tomcat .32 acp

    If you want to carry inside the waistband maybe a Bersa Thunder .380 or a 9mm There are many nice 9mm's.

    REMINGTON Do Forget the 25 acp they are a worthless gun, I don't mean they won't hurt/kill someone but you are better off with a .22LR or .32 or .380
