A Beginners Guide to Handguns

According to a recent survey from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), an estimated 8.4 million people purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020, and more than 3.2 million people bought their first handgun in the first 6 months of 2021. One of the biggest challenges for first time gun owners is finding out which self-defense handgun is best for beginners.

Finding the best handgun for beginners can be a difficult prospect, but not at the GlockStore! We have every Glock in stock, as well as many other popular handguns for beginners, like Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, and several popular brands of rifles. 

The best way to find out which handgun is right for you, is to safely shoot a couple of different brands and models. That is exactly why the SHOOT270 Ranges exclusively at GlockStore are proud to offer a wide array of gun rentals. Before you fire a single shot, our trainers will be able to ask you a couple of questions to best learn what type of handgun(s) you should try out based on your specific needs and goals. When booking a training session you can rent several types of handguns, shoot them in our wide open climate controlled SHOOT270 Indoor Ranges with one of our talented instructors, and decide which handgun is the best for you. 

Among many first time gun buyers, we can't help but notice one trend. For the first time in history, women are buying handguns at the same rate men are. We think this is fantastic! We fully support a women's right to protect themselves and their family. That is exactly why we now have regular Ladies Night Events! Whether you are an experienced shooter, or have never shot a gun before, you will be split into small groups of like-minded women to learn about the different options available to you, some fundamental techniques, and do some shooting with our trainers in our SHOOT270 rooms. That is why GlockStore Nashville has quickly become the best place for women to buy a firearm. 

Of course, when you purchase the handgun, that doesn’t complete the process! It is so vital to learn how to safely and properly use your new handgun. That is exactly why we offer a 30 minute training session in our SHOOT270 indoor ranges with every gun purchase made at our Nashville location, for a limited time. Of course we have no doubt after you experience Nashville’s premiere indoor shooting range, you will be coming back for more! Book your training session today, and start your journey to purchasing your first handgun!
