That is what I am thinking. I think for a first gun and a hand me down from my father I will keep it in the family.

A handgun is what I want and will be my next purchase.

It will probably need some attention as my dad has not fired it in a very long time, hoping it has not been neglected too bad.

If you don't intend to concealed carry, imo you can't go wrong with a Springfield Armory "Loaded" 1911.. combat sights, ambidextrous saftey, nice looking grips, solid guide rod, all around nice pistols. A little pricey, about 8-900.

One that's fired from the rim of the casing, as opposed to the center.
