well that all depends on several different things. 1) how much experiance with firearms in general and pistols in specifc? 2) what is the intended purpose of the pistol? 3) what is you budget for the intended pistol?
little to no experiance, start with a 22 rimfire pistol first, either a semi-auto or even a revolver. some experiance, go with either a revolver in 357/38 or a 9mm in a semi auto, due to cost of ammo for practice or just general range use.
deciding whether you want a pistol for range use and general target practice or whether it's for SD/HD use is important. now you can use one pistol for both, but there are always tradeoffs when doing so. not everyone can afford both types as many of us have pistols just for one purpose or the other, so if relegated to one, then you need to optimize both uses as best as possible.
deciding on how much you have to spend will also be a key factor in what is available for you to purchase.
give us some more details and maybe we can help you make a better informed decision on what to get.
