Go to a range and get some training first. Then go back to the range a few times each time rent a difere nt handgun or caliber. Then carefully choose a handgun. Ask friends and family who have handguns and know how to shoot to take you out to the range.
Sent from my SM-T113 using TapatalkHey everyone. New to the forum and just wanted to ask for a little advice from the community. I am looking to purchase my first handgun. First and foremost the reason is to protect my beautiful family. I have been around a lot of guns just not handguns. I was wondering what your opinions were on first handgun purchases. Do yall think it would be better to purchase a full size handgun to start with to learn proper shooting and safety or purchase a gun that I could hopefully carry once I get comfortable doing so? Thank you all in advance for any advice to a new shooter
