I am just starting to get into the whole pistol business. My family is full of hunters so guns are not new to me. We own a 7mm, 270, 12 gauge and that’s just for starters. Were huge in the rifle are but uneducated in the pistol field. The problem I am having is my father went out and got a Glock (That I enjoy) for home protection. I liked it so much that I want to consider starting shooting regularly. Even considering shooting competitions, actively going to ranges etc. I want to try out the pistol scene. I got hooked after trying my dad's pistol. The question is what type of gun should i consider on buying if i do decide to go into the competition area? I have been looking at 9mm mainly if that helps out at all. I would go with a Glock, but I don’t like the safety feature that that they have on them (on the trigger only). And besides I believe that they were mainly designed with home protection in mind. All answers welcomed as I am eager to learn about this new sport!
