You're going to get a thousand answers here, none of them may be right for you. Everyone likes the feel and features of different guns and for different reasons, so I will not recommend a specific model or brand. I will say since it is going to be for home protection and range that I would look into a full size gun. 9mm is great and has a very wide variety of ammo at very good cost when compared to other calibers. Just go to the gun store and handle several guns with the features you want and find the one that feels best. Also a good idea to take some training classes as a new shooter. There's a lot more to proper pistol shooting than to just point and shoot like on TV.

As much as I love 1911 looks and feel they should only be made in 45acp

Another vote for the 92. Either the 92FS, or the new 92A1.

Great at the range, for HD, you can even carry them, with

a little effort. Never had a FTF or FTE on either of mine, they

are easy to clean, and I haven't found ammo yet they

wouldn't cycle. Redundant safety- ambidextrous thumb, decocker, and DA,

little wonder they are still popular with LE.
