    I want to buy a hand gun. Probably something like a .45. Where do I start? Don't I have to have a liscense or something?

    No need for a liscense to purchase.

    What's your budget?
    Ever been shooting before?

    Well, seeing you're in Texas, theyre much more gun friendly than Maryland :hs:

    Go to a range and try a couple of pistols out, see which one suits you.

    maybe like $200. I know how TX is with guns but im not sure how the laws work. I think you have to take some kind of handgun safety course or some crap.

    200 won't get you much in the form of a decent new gun. A XD can be had for ~400 if you look hard enough

    Maybe check out a Makarov or a .38 revolver for that budget.
    I wouldn't trust a .45 I bought for only $200
    You might also try a CZ-52. I can buy those wholesale for $99.

    You dont need a license, but you probably will need a permit.

    No license or permit needed just to buy one. You have to go through classes and such if you are going to get a CHL.

    FYI there is a gun show this weekend at Brown Convention Center.

    Do try and save a little more cash so you can buy a better handgun. A well made gun should last you a lifetime if well maintained and its personal defense is not an area where you should be cheap.

    If you are a Concealed Carrier, true, you wont need another license or permit, but some states are changing that. Indiana just put a new law into effect today that stiffens the requirments for CCW/CHL purchasers.
