Fresh shooters in the police academy shoot .40 and 9mm all day long and either get it right or look for another career.

Oh and welcome to FTF Borozon.

Would you hand your daughter a 454 Casull? It's one thing to start with ARs, or 9mms, that's perfectly fine. Giving a new shooter a hand cannon will likely get them hurt or worse.

I don't necessarily subscribe to the 'start with a .22' theory but it has it's merits...

My first handgun experience was with a .44 mag...and I didn't pick up another handgun for 10 years...

Had some green shooters with us a few months back (a couple) and while he was fine with the 9mm, .45 and 12 ga, she didn't like anything other than the .22 (and shot lights out with it...we credit that to our superb training methods... )...even the 9mm and .410 were too much for her...at that time...

Stuff like that is purely subjective and shooter specific. She wasn't trying to qualify for anything, but at the same time, we wanted her first experience to be a positive one. The .22 was perfect for her...

For a lot of first time shooters this is the difference between wanting to go on or being spooked out of a desire for more. Over 60 years ago it was common to start kids out with .22's. My first experience with a revolver was with an H&R nine shot break top that some friend of my step dad let me shoot, it was a positive experience. Even to this day I'd like to have one like it even though my favorite is .44 mag. My start on the .44 was with the purchase of a Sauer 6" SA .44 mag, not the most fun to shoot not to mention the grip frame screws liked to loosen after about 12 rounds. Then I got a Super Blackhawk, what a pleasure that was to shoot in comparison to the Sauer, but then I was determined to overcome recoil and blast anticipation and flinch and in the end I have probably put more venison in the freeze with a Redhawk than with any rifle I've owned.

Hey, lighten up, you may not have "Cabin Fever" but I'm pretty sure there are those here who do and more than likely they often dredge through the zombie threads looking for something to keep them from going nutty from the "Polar Vortex" and being all cooped up for days on end. I'm not even dealing with the vortex and yet here I am.

as a general rule, for most people, especially those new to firearms or new to pistols, a large bore hand cannon is not the best choice to start them out on. even some of the compact pistols like those made for CC even in normally tame calibers are not the best choice for a first time user to handguns.

but i will add, not everyone is alike and some learn quicker or adapt to larger calibers quicker than others. but as a general rule, i always suggest starting with a 22 for new user whether it be rifles or pistols.

Thank you for the welcome and I see you agree with the .22 concept posted here and yes new police officers start out with a full size handgun immediately. My compliments on the young shooter.

I already did and she thought it was quite fun to shoot. I have a friend with a 454 who's gun I used to shoot before purchasing my own. I simply taught her to grip it properly and allow it to recoil accordingly and she was surprised but did very well. Subsequent shots were managed a little more elegantly as fine motor skill development continued. You have to realize in my case I have over 35 years of experience as a professional firearms instructor. She already heard all about starting with a .22 which she requested we skip that and to right to training just like I would another student. So, she shot everything on day one.
