In another thread we are all discussing the worst guns we ever bought back when we were too young and stupid to know any better. One thing that is becoming clear is that the gun buyers that are young now do not seem to be making the same mistakes us older guys made. I think the main reason is gun forums like this one. It is just too easy to educate yourself these days and way harder to remain "gun ignorant." When I started buying handguns myself, back in 1987, there was no such thing as the internet to help me out.
