This might sound crazy but I've introduced many, many "virgin" shooters to my handgun collection in order for them to:
A. Learn to safely handle and shoot a handgun and...
B. Figure out what "they" like given a nice array of DA/SA Auto, SA Only Auto, Striker Fired, and DA/SA revolvers.
At the end of the session I always ask the group which platform they liked the best... and the vast majority, evenly distributed between men and women, adults and teens, over 90%, have pointed to my full size 5" Colt 1911.
Moral of the story... don't forget to shoot the old "slab side .45"
...and yes, you can get them in .40
