SafetyOn : The Comprehensive Guide to Firearm Safety
and Responsible Gun Ownership

It's a bit pricy for a college student ($40), but you might be able to
get some other people to chip in. It is also possible your college has a
rifle program. They, or the school library, might be able to justify
buying and lending it. Or getting a copy on approval and letting you be
part of the review group :).

The Model 23 is the smaller conventional frame .40 Lib. There is a more
compact Glock .40, but some people think it's harder to control. Go to a
range that rents and try 'em all. Don't be in a hurry to plunk down $500
or more on a purchase you'll come to regret.

Gunnies call 'em "autoloaders" too. "Kill me"? No, thanks. I don't much
hold with it. :) Since owning firearms, I have found in myself a marked
tendency to not say stuff like that. FWIW.
