Apologies to the OP for drifting. I've removed my subscription to this thread.

Another vote for 22LR for starters.

Eventually you'll find something

you really prefer, but for now,

the 22LR gives you cheap ammo,

a great starting gun, and something you

and others can enjoy at the range together.

I was new to shooting several months ago. My dad and I took a gun class together and for the firing part the instructor gave me a 9mm Glock 19. After the class, we have been going back to the range about once a week and renting different types of guns each time. I strongly recommend trying out different types like this if you can until you find something that feels great for you. I was completely surprised with what I ended up loving and buying.

The more experienced members had very good points (as usual) about also considering things like whether you want to use this as a defense gun as well.

Good luck!

Just to give you some idea, I've got .45s, 44s,9mms,

7.62s a-plenty, and shotguns.

But I'm taking my 22s to the range next couple of outings

just for target practice and the sheer fun...
