No. U wont worry about the recoil.
To be sure, go to local range and rent it. I believe you will love it

Honestley dont even think about the recoil. If my oldlady can shoot round after round of pretty hot .357's you will be fine. Shes like 5'5'' and 125lbs.

I have a .22 conversion kit for my Sig 220...Maybe others won't agree but I feel if you learn to shoot with the main gun you plan to use , carry etc. your way ahead of the curve...You get use to the feel , operation , trigger , field stripping etc. etc. and still can shoot cheaply...If you plan on buying a few differnt firearms then a .22 is a great first option...My opinion is based mostly on if your looking for a single or main carry weapon...I have a few friends who just wanted a single weapon for either the range or HD and there are plenty of brands that make conversion kits these days.Not everyone has a budget or a desire to own as many firearms as they can...I've been shooting and buying firearms for 25yrs and many on here have been for much longer...Bottom line it depends on your long term goals...I know my P.D's S.W.A.T team used .22 versions of the AR and H@K mp5 for training .

IMO, for a first purchase, a revolver is a better way to start.

Take a Hunter Safety Course, one that provides an opportunity to fire guns. Then go to a range that has gun rentals, and try a few out. They'll make you buy their ammo (not Walmart prices, but generally fair), but the rentals themselves are inexpensive. For around $50, you can try several and zero in on what you like.

A 22 LR Revolver, like a Ruger SP101 4" would be a great start.
