I just recently brought home my newest acquisition and couldn’t be more pleased. I purchased my 9mm Jericho 941 from Wanstall’s in Maple Ridge and was thoroughly satisfied with their service and helpful advice. I have to admit that their store is addictive for me and I’d soon be broke and divorced if I spent anymore time and money there than I do now. Nothing like getting up close and personal with all kinds of awesome hardware!
Anyway, pics are where it’s at so, I’ve included a few. One of my favorite things about the Jericho 941 RPL or full sized model is the large, molded grip. I have larger mitts I guess and I like the bottom of the grip on a handgun to come to at least the bottom of my hand or slightly past; which the RPL model does.
I should state up front that although I am not new or inexperienced with firearms, I am however new to the world of handguns. Ever since I can remember I’ve had a distinct fascination with guns in general and pistols are no exception.
I had the privilege of growing up around firearms, primarily rifles and shotguns. I remember the first time I heard the report of my Dad’s .30-30 Winchester Model 94 lever gun…I was probably five years old and was hooked! I shot .22 short as a young kid at camp and had a .177 cal AR-15 style air rifle from about 10 years old. I had toy guns galore and I used to shoot my air rifle with great enthusiasm as a young fella.

When learning to fire guns and rifles, nothing can replace experience and professional instruction. Putting rounds downrange with your own finger on the trigger is the best way to learn – then supplement with books, online courses, and even quality YouTube Channels.
This past weekend I decided to head off to the indoor shooting range in our city. This gave me the opportunity to get familiar with and try out various handguns, shotguns, and even some carbines. Whether you are just getting started with shooting and aren’t sure it’s for you, or maybe you are just trying to decide between a few different weapons for your next purchase – a trip to a gun range is likely the right move for you.
