First how old? Hunting or conceal carry? How much experience in firearms do you have? After you tell us your going to get bombarded with GLOCK, 1911, S & W, Springfield, Colt, Sig, Browning, Kimber, Walther, Wilson, CZ, 9mm, 40 S&W 45acp, 380, 38spl+p 10mm, ect. Now your totally confused. Best thing is to go the the range, try different guns that fits your hand and you shoot well then decide what to get.
There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period. Ted Nugent
