If budget is a concern there are many options for discontinued and older models of guns that can be found at much lower prices.
Ruger created the Ruger P series pistols up until 2013 with over 13 different models. The series models boast many different combinations of chambering, magazine size, design, etc leaving many attractive options for a used gun purchase that fits each person’s need. Though Ruger continues to make great guns outside of the “P” series, there are plenty of Ruger fans who still love their P89 or P90 as examples.
The Colt 1911 had set the standard for semi-auto pistols today and its design has been copied by more gun manufacturers than any other design. It shouldn’t be hard to find a great gun at a lower price modeled after the historic Colt 1911.
Some Security Guards and even off-duty Police Officers still look to revolvers as an option for protection. Revolvers have the wheel chambered design limiting chances of jamming and are very easy to learn and operate. They shouldn’t be counted out for more simple Security Guard details.
One thing everyone agrees on when it comes to guns is that you will ultimately decide what is good for you. Try heading to a gun range and testing out different types while keeping in mind your state laws and Security Company requirements for allowed guns. Once you find your perfect weapon, jump into a Security Guard forum and share your experience with others.
