    What kind of handgun

    I am thinking about buying a hand gun. Probably first go to a shooting range to try this out. Though not sure what they have there. Anyway, thinking about a reliable handgun for an absolute non experienced guy. Also I only want to buy one and not more as they are here in Thailand very expensive. Whatever you buy, starting price is about 2500 USD. Also should take into consideration what kind of caliber. Any suggestions?

    Look at Hi point. Very reasonable accurate and inexpensive with a lifetime warrantee. Can't go wrong with .45 acp. http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com

    The only thing I know is that there are roughly 10 mil guns in Thailand with a population of 65 mil.

    I'm just messin' with you Dirk. There are a number of good threads on the forum discussing first time handgun choices.
    Pistols and Revolvers

    Because of the overwhelming number of potential choices, can you tell us what is available in Thailand? Or can you buy just about anything? Most of us probably don't know the gun laws in your country.

    I checked a little what is available but I am not familiar with all the brands. I think the general stuff like glocks are here. The laws are ok. Need some paperwork (record from police that you are not a criminal, income, work permit, place you live) but shops will help I believe and it takes a little time to process. Further, like I mentioned, they are rather expensive. Starting at around 2500 USD.

    Even though in normal times you don't notice the presence of guns and at normal times Thailand is extremely safe (lived here a long time). I expect when SHTF that some of those 10 mil guns are coming out of the closet.
