Thinking of getting a gun, give me some ideas. Tell me about the weight, accuracy, stopping power, price, price of ammo, anything else I need to know...

"And the fact that your gun says replica..." How much do they run? Ammo, etc?

I wouldn't call it "formal training", but yes, a former Marine friend has taught me how to load, shoot, clean, etc and I've been to a range maybe 10 to 12 times, but that was all years ago. If I do get a gun I'm going to do the conceal and carry certification and go shooting once a week, etc.

What is the gun for? For target practice, the new Ruger .22 is a great gun. For home defence, a mossy 500 is the thing. For hunting deer, a Ruger .44 with 8 3/4" barrel and scope is good.

Ruger SP101 .357. You can load it with cheap .38's at the range. When you load it with .357's it makes a big boom and smashes cats. Just make sure that if you go with a revolver that your CCW permit will allow you to qualify with a revolver and carry an auto or vice versa. Here in Vegas you can qualify with a derringer, a revolver, or an auto. If you qualify with the auto, you can carry all 3. Qualify with the revolver, you can carry a revolver or derringer. Qualify with a derringer you can carry a derringer. It's weird.

No matter what you pick you will probably own several handguns before you find the right fit. Personally I really like my HK P7 because it has the safety of a double action gun, the speed of a safe action gun and the smooth trigger of a single action gun.  I do think that eventually most shooters float towards a single action trigger.

 A SW .357 is not a bad choice for revolver either.  The truth, though, is that very few guys want their first pistol to be a revolver.  It's not sexy enough.

I don't think a first gun should be a Glock simply because of the lack of a proper safety. Revolvers are good, 1911's are good, HK's are great!!! As always, go to your local range and see what feels good.

Uh, revolvers don't have a 'proper' safety either. They have no safety, in fact.

Stronghold, the pull distance on a revolver is so great that a safety isn't really needed when the hammer is down. Shit, my S&W .38 Special has almost 3/4 of an inch pull. No way that thing is accidentally going off if I touch the trigger.

Heavyhands is correct re: a revolver's trigger pull.
