A friend of mine has just "gone outside" and is preparing to take up his new postion shortly. Apparently, he was having a conversation with his new employers, tying up a few loose ends etc, when they offered him his choice of sidearm, which incidentally will be his primary weapon. The concept of actually having a choice, momentarily phased him, but thankfully he had the presence of mind to reply with feigned indifference,"I'll let you know nearer the time.." or somesuch off-hand response. So anyway, hes been asking round his SOI, but none of us are sufficently expert to advise him as he has to choose from a bewildering array including: S&W, SIG, CZ, GLOCK etc, and a range of calibres, 9mm, 10mm, 40S&W, 45ACP Talk about being a kid in a sweetshop, he is understandably having trouble deciding. Not only does he want to make the right choice technically, but he doesnt want to look like a cowboy "Oh yeh, make it a .50 Desert Eagle, cus I've got nads like grapefruit!" I will admit to being a little out of my depth, so any advice I can pass along will be very gratefully received.
