Never owned a gun before, but numerous friends have them. I shot for the first time today at the range; a p3at, glock 9mm, Taurus 9mm, and a hipoint c9 9mm. I was wanting something tiny, but still good for home defense. I don't have my ccw license yet, but am looking to in the near future. Everyone keeps telling me to get a 9mm, and after seeing ammo prices, so am I. But, that p3at just sticks in my mind. I'm sure out guys are probably a little biased, but I'm debating bewteen a new Hipoint C9 ($180) or a used p3at($225). The KT has an extended grip and a belt clip. Its the green color (not my favorite ) and I love the size of it. Only downside is I was not accurate at all with it, it kept releasing the magazine, and the ammo isn't cheap . What do you guys suggest? I'm not looking for a glock, but a nice small gun that I could future ccw if I wanted. I don't plan on going to the range every week or anything like that, just looking for a little more peace of mind mostly while at home. The wife wants me to get one, that she could fire if need be, just since we live in a shady kinda neighborhood. Its mostly a home defense weapon.
