      No like said it's fine as long as it's in good condition and for a good price. The problem is that as a beginner you are much less likely to understand how to check if a firearm is in "good condition" and what a "fair price" is.

        I'd say youtube and like 10 minutes on google. Websites like this exist: https://truegunvalue.com/pistol/glock-g17/price-historical-value

        So yeah, takes like 10 fricking minutes, I ain't gonna hold OP's hand.

      if its in good condition no of course not, anyone that says otherwise is a homosexual like these guys

      Why would you take the chance on your first carry gun? You don't know if whoever took proper care of their gun or if they were shooting over pressured ammo or whatever. I wouldn't mind for a rifle so much, but not my carry piece.

        >if its in good condition no of course not,
        Right, but that's the risk: how is a newbie going to identify potential problems with the gun before buying it without the experience of knowing what to look for?

        IMHO there's nothing at all wrong with buying used guns, just do your homework first so you aren't buying someone else's problem.

    Why are you purchasing your first piece second. I thought it was your first, not your second. Don't tell me you're getting seconds without your firsts. How could you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

    Absolutely no problem, I did the same thing.
    Just don't buy one you didn't get to inspect yourself and make sure the rifling and locking lugs aren't worn down.
    As long as they have sharp edges with no burrs on them the gun should be fine.

      This is highly ironic, like when people talk about how nice the Harry Potter universe is because nobody has a gun, while conveniently overlooking the fact that those universes involve children with amazingly lethal powers.

    There’s nothing wrong with it if you’re knowledgeable/experienced enough to tell what condition it’s in.
    So I guess if you’ve used a lot of guns that weren’t yours in the past.
    However since the thrill of consooming is strongest the first time, you should consider how much more you’d enjoy buying a new one (even if you’d enjoy using it just as much if it’s used)

    Nothing, especially police trade in handguns. Often carried, rarely shot, only dropped once.

    no, most guns don't really go bad. just give it a good cleaning when you get it. if there's anything wrong you can probably just send it to the manufacturer, most are pretty chill about fixing shit.

    Not really.
    People commonly buy a gun that just doesn't do much for them or ends up being redundant in a large collection and end up selling it with low round counts. It's pretty rare that a typical gun owner actually shoots one gun enough to truly wear it out. The more common problems are neglect, like rust from it sitting unattended in a high moisture environment for a long time. Bad modifications (AKA "Bubba" work) and running insanely over-pressure reloads are also things to look out for, but are less common. It is not entirely uncommon to see a gun still brand new in the box with 0 rounds down the pipe being sold for a slight discount under the same exact model new.

    Copsurp gets a bit tricky because ex police guns are typically carried a lot but shot rarely. The finish will be very worn but they are usually in good shape mechanically. That is-usually. Some police departments don't retire their guns at regular intervals and may run them through qualifications frequently enough that they might be functional but loosened up quite a bit.
    Milsurp is also a relative minefield. There are very solid good condition milsurp guns out there that were of very high quality and diligently taken care of while in service. It depends on what though. It's rare to see a mismatched and ruined K31 for instance, but if you are looking for an Ishapore 2A or Israeli Mauser those things got passed around and used until they were practically no longer usable so it is very hard to find one in good condition.

    In my time buying and trading guns the vast majority have been used and almost all of them have been functionally just like new, but I have been burned a few times too and I have seen true junk that I wouldn't take for free. It helps having some experience to understand what you are looking for, and the expected problems can vary a lot depending on the type of gun with some being more resilient than others.

      In addition to this, I'd say you can think about the type of gun being sold and that can often provide you a lot of clues.
      For example, many people will buy something that has a lot of recoil like a big-bore revolver or a dangerous game rifle, shoot it once, then decide nope it's not for them and it gets sold with half a box of ammo through it--often with that half box of ammo included. Those are usually safe buys because the guns are essentially new. Other times you come across a ""customized"" AR or Glock that has a mishmash of Aliexpress parts. Those are usually to be avoided, as like a Riced-out Honda they are usually less reliable and lower performing than how they started life.

    No, most common advice for people is buy a used glock 19 for your first gun. My first glock was a used 19 lol.

    No, but there is something wrong with watching Japanese pedo cartoons in your mid-30s instead of taking a shower, going outside, and getting a job and a girlfriend. Grow the frick up.

        Openly being a weeb as an adult is a great way to tell women and employers that you're essentially a sheltered adult child with subpar social skills. You can enjoy watching it in private and still be a relatively normal person but if you unironically go around telling people about your "waifu" you're ngmi. that's simply the hard truth. Even girls who LIKE anime find it off-putting if you mention you watch Lucky Star or some similar homosexual bullshit featuring underaged girls.

        The hilarious thing about CCS is that yes, on the surface it's 100% G-rated. There's nothing explicit or violent. But hoo boy does it reference or hint at just about any kink you might imagine.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. My first two handguns were bought used, they work well, and I still have them. The Walther was my first and I never intended to carry it, but I've carried the Model 10 a lot over the years and it's been flawless. Just look up info on the gun you want so you can do a thorough check over it before you buy.

    You'll need a second second-hand piece for your second hand.
