Have shot all my life but mainly rifle shooting. With handguns I have shot my fathers ruger .357 the most. As for training none, I will be taking the class to get my CC though. I'm from Oklahoma so I grew up around guns just never owned my own.

What about the Bersa BP CC? They call it the BP9CC. It's a thin polymer gun in 9mm that would probably be perfect for this person.

Sounds like you just need to shoot as many as you can to see what "fits"
If you like the 357 you can't go wrong with a S&W DA 6 shooter for a CCW-

Try shooting as many as you have the opportunity to shoot. If you have fired .357 magnums then I would say get a larger caliber like the .40. But get what suits you most importantly. You going to find man opinions here but the only one that truly matters is yours.

I like Ruger, but don't own any of their semi-auto pistols (other than a .22/45) but I can say that Ruger makes an excellent gun for the money. I am not too keen on Taurus. I have fired a some of them and don't care for them. I shoot any that are offered for me to try, but I wouldn't buy one myself.

Hoss is right. I have an S&W L-frame Mountain Light- fires seven shots and is scandium framed - weighs very little (.357 magnum does kick a bit, but for practice I use .38 Special). Bit pricey though.

I bought the Ruger Sr40 and I think it's a great gun, largish for carrying though and I'm 6' 260. I'm looking at the SR9c as I'm impressed with the platform. Agree that you should shoot as many as you can before pulling the trigger on your purchase (pun intended)

I will check out Kahr I like to buy American for sure! I should have said I do not want a revolver, that's just what I have shot the most of. Obviously just need to find a big gun shop tht has everything lol. If any if you can help me narrow down to a few nice narrow ish options that would be great! Thanks again for everyone's advice so far! I am not wanting a bottom end gun either and Taurus may not be that it just kinda comes across that way. I would rather spend the $$ on a really nice gun and be happy with it then spend less and want a different one in 6 mo.
