You'll have to be more specific as to what you want to do with that first firearm. There are many of types of guns for you to choose from.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

How about a Glock 40?

You also cannot go wrong with a 1911 or a Springfield Armory XD.

Many of us recommend a .22 for a first gun.
Like WOC said, we need some specifics on what exactly your looking for.
Also it would help, if by firearm you could tell us, do you mean rifle, shotgun, or handgun.

Trips right. A .22 is usually the best gun for a new shooter. But small calibers like 9mm, .223 (for rifles, I imagine a .223 handgun kicks pretty bad), ect would probably be good too if you want more power, but not alot of kick

What exactly do you want it for? Just for fun, concealed carry, home defense, competition, or something else?

[QUOTE=glock40;673001]What should I get for my first firearm[/QUOTE

I have to ask the obvious question. Your screen name is "glock 40". So with this being your first firearm, are you wanting a glock in a 40cal?

i know this is the handgun section, but the first gun shouldn't be a semi auto pistol.

it should be a .22 rifle. (to learn basic shooting)

then a 12 or 20 gauge shotgun. (single shot break open or pump action)

then a centerfire rifle. (bolt action or semi auto)

after that you can start branching out into the pistol world. (i'd start with a revolver)

crawl first, then walk, then run.
