My first gun
 
Hey everyone, im a newbie when it comes to guns, im interested in buying my first one, so the real question is?? Would a walther ppq be a good starter, the reviews on this gun are all good, soooo????

If that's what you want, go get it. Have any experience with firearms?

I feel the best course of action is to start with a .22LR. Easy to shoot and inexpensive ammo. Get good with the .22LR and then make your centerfire choices(s). I guarantee you will always love your .22LR and shoot it more often than the others.

With that said... here are some good choices in auto loaders;

pistol - Browning Buck Mark, Ruger Mark III
rifle - Marlin 60/795, Ruger 10/22

Those mark III's are pretty sweet. I plan on getting two, one for the wife and one for me.

If you have handled the PPQ and still like the way it feels, then go for it. There are some people that are not fans of any Walthers, but I have had no qualms with them. Your best bet would be to find a range or a friend with one and shoot it before you take the plunge.

Yes I have shot a sig 250 40cal, rugar 9mm, and couple of others, and held the ppq but never shot it.. But thanks for the info everyone

Levush, why don't you jump over to the Introductions section and tell us a little about yourself?

Not a 1911 but its a good gun as guns go :rolleyes:

Walther has always made high quality pistols. I can think of worse choices ;)

I agree that trying it out if you can would be ideal. It all depends on if the gun feels right for you.

Also, what are you going to use it for? Target shooting, carry, home defense? I know another member recommended starting with a .22, but if I needed to defend myself, I would not reach for my .22, but a larger caliber that I shoot well. That is just my opinion.
