I bought my first pistol in 11 years, I have purchased a couple of long guns since 2000, but bought my first pistol in 11 years. I have several pistols, but most of them are too large to carry comfortable, and my little CZ-50 is great but the little .32 ACP round isn't an effective manstopper. I want to carry more because face it, it is dangerous times we live in and nobody will take care of you except you. When seconds count, the cops are minutes away. I purchased a Taurus millennium .40 caliber, same round as my S&W Sigma. I paid a fair amount from Academy Sports. it was a good deal. I had checked several pawn shops first, but their inventory was varied and they didn't have exactly what I wanted for the price range I paid. I paid $369 plus tax, got pistol, extra clip, box and cleaning brush.
Now it is time for range, gotta find a good holster for it for CCW applications.
