So here's the story: My sister and I looking to purchase our first handguns. According to my research, the first and foremost factor to consider is the fit to one's hand. We went to the gun range and my fit was the Glock 19 and my sister's fit was the S&W 9mm with the smaller grip option, so we shot the S&W in order to be cost effective. I want her to enjoy shooting a handgun, but she was pretty intimidated by the 9mm. I was able to to shoot a 4 inch grouping from 7yrds and 15yrds, but I want to make a hobby of this and purchase a handgun that is accurate, easy to fieldstrip and clean, and find affordable ammo. You guys are far more informed than I, so I'm asking for your help to direct me towards a terrific first handgun and something I can direct my sister towards. Her needs are self defense at the home (which may develop into a hobby) and mine revolve towards a hobby and being accurate at the range. So far, on paper a Glock fits the bill. What do you think?
