Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

What should I get?

Should I get a six-shooter style or magazine style pistol?

What do you plan to do with it? Will you use it for hunting, plinking, target shooting, competition, or self defense? We need more information before recommending anything.

How much experience do you have with handguns? A .44 mag isn't a beginner's gun.

Just for self defense at home and basic target shooting. I'm looking to get something in the 9mm or .22 range.

Well If your not going to use it for conceled carry I'd go revolver. A 4 inch s&w 38spcl or 357mag. If 357 use 38s in it for reduced recoil. There extremly accurate light on recoil and have more than enough power to stop any intruder that tries to get into your house. Work well on vicious dogs too. My s&w model 19 shoots great I've taught a few new shooters to shoot with it. A 22 is a good plinking gun but not enough power for home protection. If you wanna go 22 then any of the ruger semi autos and revolvers are good. In the automatic range any will work I personally like berettas and Springfield xd. A 9mm and a 40 are good rounds I like the added power of the 40 myself. For conceled carry look at the ruger sp101 or s8w model go for a revolver for auto Taurus millinium and sig p239 are good. If your new to handguns I'd go revolver because there Easy to learn and do not jam. That's just my advise from first hand experience and from what cops have told me.

Be sure to get the proper training. Start out with the NRA Basic Pistol Course.

A Wheel gun is a Real gun.

.38 special is my favorite plinking round.
