A Suggestion for my brother
 
Howdy,

Well my little brother start getting into shooting since i insist him lol. He wanna start with a handgun.

he have 2 in mind.

1. Rossi .357 Revolver with a 4" barrel.

2. 1911 Pisol in .22lr

What's your idea? For fun shooting and maybe home defense.

First time gun buyers I will always suggest a revolver. So much simpler and safer to understand and operate than an auto. Once the trigger finger is trained, then they can move onto things with more buttons and doodads

Are you also set on the Rossi? Rugers also make some nice revolvers that are in the same ballpark for cost.

I agree with the revoler.

It can shoot mild .38 Specials and hard hitting .357 Magnums. That way, if he wants more punch one day when he's a little more experienced, he doesn't need a different gun right away.

Simple design, is IMO, the best for new shooters.

Revolver 100%

There IS something to be said for learning on a .22, I admit. But I still say wheel gun, first choice.

.22 revolver. .22 so he can afford enough ammo to practice, practice, practice.

And prefered by some of us experienced shooters as well.
