    I went to buy my 1st handgun about 3 1/2 years ago, right after the school shooting in Connecticut. I listened to all the talk about "assault weapons" (God I hate that term) being banned but I just wanted to get a Glock 19 pistol. I went into Hoover Tactical Firearms outside of Birmingham. To say the place was packed would be a gross understatement. Their display boards behind the sales counter were almost barren save for a few scattered shotguns and .22 rifles here and there. Nothing in the tactical rifle category, they were all gone. The pistol cases offered a little more variety so when I finally got someone to help me he said they were out of all the Glocks. I asked him to show me something else in a 9MM so he pulled out a Steyer Arms M9-A1. It was about in the same price range as the Glock so I decided to take a chance on a make of gun that I wasn't familiar with. To say that I've been happy with this gun would be another one of those understatements. I've fired approx. 6,000 rounds through it and jams and other malfunctions have been almost non existent except for when I bought 100 rounds of some cheap Russian crap but that was the ammo not the gun.

    My first gun was a 1960 Colt Official Police .38 spl with a 4 inch barrel. My Dad bought it but it had a broken spring if I recall. My Uncle, who I am named after, bet my Dad he could get the gun fixed first and if he did, it had to come to me. I have had it since 1985.
