Introducing the “My First Gun” Website
Student of the Gun 06.11.12
Since the year 2008, the numbers of first time gun buyers, particularly in the handgun market, have risen dramatically. Thousands upon thousands of men and women are purchasing or considering purchasing their first gun.
These first time gun buyers aren’t necessarily “gun people” or a part of the traditional gun culture. They are men and women from all walks of life who have come to the personal decision that it’s a good idea to own a firearm.
My First Gun is an online resource specifically designed to aid and assist the recent gun buyer or someone who is about to make that decision. Easy to digest articles, photographs, and educational videos will provide the first time gun buyer or potential gun buyer with a solid foundation free of bias or hype.
Paul Markel, host of Student of the Gun television, and professional firearms instructor will provide numerous written and videotaped educational pieces. Topics will include foundational material such as choosing the correct gun for the task, understanding handgun actions, ammunition choices, seeking professional training and practice.
