Last Wednesday I got to sit down and talk with Buz Mills – the owner of Gunsite – about several things. Amoung the topics discussed was his advice for someone wanting to obtain a handgun for personal protection. I didn’t make it easy on Buz, I said give me three and only three pieces of advice.
Sort of carrying on the COL Cooper tradition of directness, Buz simplified his three things to three words. Based on my experience, this might be the best, simpliest, non BS advice I have heard anyone offer with regard to this topic.
Buz said, “1911, 250 and now.
I’ll not be so presumptious to think I can say anything that would compete with those three words but with regard to the advice Buz offered, I will say that those three words very aplty describe the equipment and training you need as well as the necessity with which you should get with the program.
Well played Buz. Well played indeed.
