So prolly a long shot... but my dad is looking to buy a decent hand gun for my brother for X-Mas... Not looking to break the bank on a super great gun, but not looking for sloppy seconds either... (I know very little about guns so I don't even know if there are sloppy seconds... :)

He'll prolly go to Cabelas if he doesn't find anything 2nd hand, but thought I'd check...

How much is he wanting to spend? I have a Bersa Thunder Compact .45 for sale. It is dual tone. It is a single or double action, with dual safety. Comes with a holster and carrying case, along with two 7 rounds magazines and the original box and paperwork. It was purchased new for Valentines day this year. I am asking $425 for everything.

I want to see the shells for this "45mm"

Armslist may be a good place to start. Otherwise if your brother doesn't know what he wants/likes, run down to Top Gun in Arnold and rent a couple different models to try out.

Yeah... My brother WANTS a Desert Eagle (9mm I think??) or a Colt 45... Both are out of the price range new (I think my dad said the Desert Eagle was $1500..) He's new to guns, has a buddy that started collecting so now he wants to get into one...

JW had a used Desert Eagle for $900 about 2 weeks ago. It might be worth giving them a call to see if they still have it. They are located just off I55 south of Imperial.

What does he plan to do with it? If its just target shooting forget the larger caliber. Get him a 22. Rounds are so much cheaper.

Home protection? Carry? Isnt Derek rather liberal for that? lol

Tell Mike to check M&M Guns in St Peters. I felt they had good prices. New and used.

Thanks everyone...

Dad ended up picking one up off of armslist last night...

And yeah Moke... he will never carry, just target practice I'm sure... In all honesty it will prolly end up sitting locked in the closet more than anything... :)
