Default want to buy

I am new to the semi pistol world. I am wanting to get one in a .45 ACP. I don't want to spend a pile of cash. My question is how is the high point for a beginner.

Agreed. The carbines are pretty fun to shoot, but the pistols are bulky and uncomfortable.

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!

Another very good entry level gun is Taurus. There are probably 4 or 5 .45 Taurus's that you can find in the low to mid $300's.

Being a new shooter is there a reason you chose a .45 for your first gun? I love a .45 myself but it is a lot of power for a brand new shooter.
